A safer tune will rely less on knock correction and just tune out detonation as much as possible.

The FA20 tune may be giving you more timing because you're using 93 in IL where the same tune on CA gas may give a less advance (since you can only see the end result with data logging.)

I would be interesting in seeing knock logs doing a 0-80 mpg run on the three tunes.
When I built the chart that was the first thing I looked at, all logs chosen were those with positive knock learn values and no knock.

Viscontis logs always had a zero knock learn, but no knock.

I am seeing similar results.
