Reset the board to factory settings. That should take you to stock. Instructions are in the manual on how to do that.

Stock dwell should be 12ms.

Check your paint to bore match, that's a factor affecting efficiency.

Are you sure you're filling to a full 4500 when you get on the field and not 3000?

^This, and... after you get your tank filled, let it sit for a bit. If you are getting a 'hot' fill then your pressure will definitely drop, albeit not TOO much, but still.

Additionally, the valve joiner inner o-ring. It's a 012 size, look in your manual. Look at Page 15 of your manual

I would also look at a possible leak in your macroline fittings. While it's pressurized, you can spray some water on the fittings to check for bubbles.
