Thank you for the question. I have read through what you are trying to achieve with the timing. I will tell you that with the way the machines are designed the Golden Rule does not apply to super automatics. That is left to a semi-auto, where you have control over the tamp pressure and a grinder really designed for tuning in on the correct grind setting. I find with the Titanium that a typical setting of 2 to 3 on grinder and the strength turned up to the highest is the best.
