The reason I ask is that once in boost a target afr of somewhere in the low 12's is typically acceptable for moderate levels of boost (i.e. 8-10psi). So if MS is just going to use the value along the top row when manifold pressure goes above the highest value on the y-axis I figure why not just have the max pressure of the y-axis on the target AFR table 100kpa and have values somewhere between 12 and 13 along the top row. That way I don't need to mess with dual tables and I can get better resolution in the low end and cruising areas.

So is that how MS handles values outside of the tables?
If not I'll come up with a proper table

If I understand what you're asking then yes it will use the last highest value. ex. along the whole 100kpa row your target afr is 13.0:1 AFR then at 110kpa then MS would "assume" that same target for 110kpa.

I wouldn't recommend doing that though, I'd put equal priortity into crusing cells/medium load cells/boost cells. Besides most of your cells down below 100kpa will be either +/- stoich so theres no need for max resolution down there.

Doesn't the base map come with a AFR table already?
