Default EBC works nice!

check out this log.... I tuned out the dip in kPa you see...it's at 5600RPM at every gear, holds fairly flat at 190-192kPa.

I'm going through all gears, hitting about 100-110mph in 5th





Using the FM (ARO) solenoid with the same settings everyone is using for the GM device.

no, Fahrenheit (I'm All-American).

actually once I pulled out of the garage the IATs were 80°F (logs around 11:30am this afternoon)....so not bad....

but notice my CLT (it will drop when knock is detected)....suffice to say, I'm ordering the FM studs and calling it a day

so is it really knocking or are you detecting knock falsely?

I saw the CLT dropped like that and assumed you just hadn't tuned the knocksense yet. What is the best way to tune the KS anyway? Run the car to redline staying out of boost and tuning the KS so that no knock is detected that way under boost anything outside of normal engine noise would be considered knock.

That's the reason why I don't recommend running the knock sensor to the clt line. It should be fine for a 3rd party logger, but it's not right for the ecu.

You can graph knock in MLV. It's a choice in the pull down menu with all the other stuff you can look at. So there's no reason to superimpose.

yeah, I'm sure even with the knocksense's sensitivty perfectly tuned it will still spike in 1st down low whengoing around corners or launching...i would rather have a clean CLT line so I'll be removing it.

i just gotta play with it now and fine tune it, but im still not driving the car from lack of an o2 sensor...
