All diesels do is knock (if you are using the definition of knock from a gasoline engine). The fuel isn't injected until the air is compressed and superheated to create combustion (over simplified, I know pre-combustion chambers and all that are sometimes involved), there is no spark event.

I don't know how the JBD works, but the rules are very different from the gas engine spark induced combustion world, I am sure JBD is not controlling the fuel injection event so it won't be causing premature combustion (like early during compression thus damaging parts).

Any time you make more power just by tricking a computer, or reprogramming you are at least going to be making more heat/higher cylinder pressures and more wear.
