    I just got my car running alright with the link v3. I would appreciate any feedback you guys have. I'm running a maft translator zeroed out and a 3'' GM maf. I don't have a working IAC so my idle is off and it doesn't decel very good and surges during warm up. The pull was done from 3rd and a little way through 4th. Open loop at around 72-75 out side. Boost set too 15.5 with less than .5 drop at upper RPM's. Stock compression. Mod's in profile.

    Also I'm running e85 with 11.0-12.7 on my aem WB at WOT.

    Their is alot of knock at the 3500 range. Should i pull more timing or add? The pull is 2/3rds of the way through the log.

    IMO you should change your knock settings. For reference, mine are at 2500 rpms and 30% TPS which is still a little conservative.

    You're not really knocking in vacuum at around the 100 sec mark, so I wouldn't worry about it. Its phantom knock.

    The short pull at ~60 sec is clean and the 1.4* retard in the 3rd gear pull at 107 sec isn't anything to worry about. That knock looks real, so your KS is working.

    I don't think you should have to go from 15* down to 9* when your turbo is spooling to keep from knocking, especially if you're running E-85. I would check your base timing with a timing light.

    What plugs are you running?

    1.copy and paste your timing max max and paste it into your timing low map
    2.you're wide open doesnt look too bad...could prly take some more out but I would adjust your throttle so you get full 100% wot because youre only getting 94% on your log
    3.that knock looks like when you're cruising and you have a weird spot in the timing there too
    4.I would detach the timing map and put it in front of your log and watch where the timing goes in that section and maybe add some

    I'm running NGK bpe7. I think thats what they are. 1 heat range lower than stock ngk's. I was having these knock issues before this pull at light throttle/loads so i pulled more timing before this log. I will move my knock settings up some and bring my min and max tables closer together. Thank you both for looking and your opinions.

    Ya change your knock settings like said above but if you are experiencing knock then you want to either pull timing or add fuel.
