Oh and if you have overboost protection I would recommend you set that up asap! Part throttle takes much self discipline :|

So did your car blow up yet? I am running 17psi on 93 octane with a whopping 9 degrees of timing at peak torque ramping to 16 at redline.

Because I am a ******* ***** and my knocklite still illuminates about 50% of the time when I WOT it in 6th on runs from 3500-5500 RPM. Yes, that is "lugging" it in boost through peak torque but seriously, should I really be seeing knock?

Maybe my knock threshold is too low? Should I just say **** it? I am running wiescos and belfabs...

I have read up on it. The thing is though, how does everyone know that is false knock? If it knocks anywhere, wouldn't it knock in that range? 4500-5500 is when everyone is at full boost and around peak torque.

Have you gotten some DET cans and put them on while you are in that range and actually listened for knock?

You can still have knock in that region but our engines are really noisy also. Do a part throttle run and you should see the same knock spike. You can also coast down a hill through that rpm range and see it.

I stopped routing my catch can from my breather to my intake. Set it up to go from breather and PCV to atmosphere.

AND MY DETONATION WENT AWAY.
