Adding more turns to the mission timers
Per the developer Amineri:
As for the timers, if you look in the config file XComLW_Overhaul, there is a difficulty-specific modifier for timers :
TimerDifficultyMod=4; Rookie TimerDifficultyMod=1; Veteran TimerDifficultyMod=0; Commander TimerDifficultyMod=0; Legendary
Thus, 4 turns are added to timers on Rookie, 1 on Veteran. Modifying these can add turns.

Some QOL ini edits
FWIW I make my changes in the \Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XComGame\Config folder, that way when I rebuild the \my documents\xcom2\xcomgame\config folder after mod updates, or for troubleshooting, etc. I don't have to redo the changes each time. However if you verify your local files it will often overwrite the changes in all folders.
You are free to make the changes in the \my documents\xcom2\xcomgame\config folder for the same effect, just replace the word "Default" with "XcomGame"
Many changes can be difficulty specific. If there are four with a number at the end of them as follows, it is for the different difficulties.
inichange=x will set the value to x for Rookie difficulty inichange=y will set the value to y for Veteran difficulty inichange=z will set the value to z for Commander difficulty inichange=q will set the value to q for Legend difficulty
