Timing retard

What is a good way to check to see if my timing is getting pulled back
during boost?  Also what boost levels are others making on pump gas?

I'm using the street dyno software which shows my car making lots of
power in second gear.  In third gear, where I hold the most boost the
longest (~22 psi which drops down to 18 psi at redline), I can see in
the hp/torque graph a dip where I think the computer is pulling back
timing.  Is there a easy way to data log timing?  Does the VAG-COM
software do this?

I will try and post my dyno graphs for second and third gear if anyone
is curious.
Thanks In Advance
