    Do you have dsmlink? If so check your settings. You may have it defaulted to appear to show knock

    Do you have an AFR gauge? You might be going lean? Might have some knock? If you have any data logging can you give a little bit more info? or maybe post a log?

    Dash control tab. Just view setting. in a nut shell. Capture a Log and create same condition that crates the cel and should see it knocking from what I gather.

    Select add photo/files. Then find the log you want to post. It should be under ecmlink, then datalog.

    Or, save the log to your desktop so you can find it easier.

    You're running way too lean by the screenshot. You want 10.5 or 11 afr at WOT on pump gas.

    Turn your boost down until you dial in afr. I believe 1 blue spring is 14psi so remove one. Do you have a boost controller, wideband? You'll want to also log the following.
    RPM
    TPS
    MAFraw - if you're running MAF
    TPSvolt
    FrontO2
    InjDuty
    Battery
    STFT
    LTFT (think med for 2g???)
    Airflow
    Airflowperrev

    Check for flatness on both matting surfaces of the manifold while you have it off. And torque correctly when reinstalling.
    Manifold to turbo 40-47 ftlbs. Make sure you have OEM bolts and OEM washers (2 per bolt). They work best.
    Manifold to head 18-22 ftlbs. Start from center bolt and work outwards
