Re: How accurate is this?
Dgatsby1.... good advice... people never think to look for or fix KR... its really not discussed much anymore and it should be!
I had a pretty terrible dose of knock retard... did some logs and got it in line... it felt good knowing I had stopped any damaging KR getting it straightened out and it did help the car stay more consistant. All in all the car felt stronger however was only ever less than a tenth of a second quicker after logging it, and that time gained could have been for a slew of different reasons. I do believe that fixing any KR issues is a BIG important job to do, power can come at a cost and people focus on going quicker yet fail to understand that its not all tire squealing goodness... bad things happen within! However gotta be honest, I don't think your gonna pick up four tenths by fixing KR onesickhotrod, if you want to cut a 13.0 or less its gonna take a cam or some nitrous or a set of gears that will let you pull up tree stumps! I'm willing to bet though pal that if you have headers your going to have KR, it is par for the course... you should check it asap if you haven't!
Felt great fixing it myself.. but I felt waaaaay more confident when I got my tune knowing a pro made sure it wasn't there!
