OK, got it:thumbsup:
I don't like to get too hung up on numbers of turns from open or closed because it is different on the externally and internally adjusted FG models, and even varies a little within the same model.
My Pike is a Coil version.
What I found was that with a softer spring, I did need more compression damping. I would run the FG fairly light, enough that I could tell it was there when I locked the fork out, and the compression usually about 1/2 or 2/3 closed. However, I had better results going with stiffer spring, and then running the compression and floodgate settings even lighter. This really improved the fork for me. I think a spring works better than damping for diving, and the light compression settings were noticeable over rough terrain at high speeds. It felt more controlled and more smooth. At this time I weighed around 190 with gear.
Once I got the PUSH mod, I could run very light FG and comp settings with the softer spring.
Interestingly, I have the exact same MoCo unit in an 80mm Reba, and run VERY different settings.
