As usual the fanbois are on defense like their said tune is being called out.

People confuse the knock sensor as being a tuning device, when in reality its the last resort to saving your motor. Even still it has its limitations and is not bullet proof in design.

I'm curious how a thread would progress without a fanboi in it.

Edit- If you read a few peoples post in this thread you will also notice that sleeping on the knock sensor isnt necessarily the most efficient power. More ignition isnt always more power.

There is a certain point where you increase ignition, and make no more power. That is where you want to place your ignition, if not a degree or 2 less.
