fair enough, that was cheap - I worded that retarded.
So I shouldn't get those colder plugs? I'm in Orlando, I went to Central Florida Turbo to get my BEGI-S kit dyno tuned. I have a Voodoo Box, but I originally had a Jackson Racing Powecard from TDR.
I think one of the Potentiometers was **** b/c it kept trying to waterboard my engine right from tip in (AFR's as low as the 9's if I didn't give it the business!)
The Voodoo Box ran much nicer. Even when running rich on the Powercard, 10:1 to 11:1 under boost - with two degrees of retard (Keith Tanner's suggestion - but since returned to stock timing to clean up lowend), I'd get this light tick sound (like if something was rattling) sometimes.
On the dyno - CFT guys said they didn't hear any detonation (but that was in the garage - engine blazing, widows down, and they say you have to have the windows up and buttoned up to hear knock)
they rode on the street and thought they didn't hear knock either (but they're not Miata boosting specialist exclusively though).
Thank you, guys.
