I did some searching but as threads get outdated I want some new feedback.
On the first hard acceleration from about 40-80, I saw 2-3 degrees of KR but ONLY when I hit around 80mph. from 40-78ish KR was at 0. Not too bad I thought. The car seemed to run great.
I then did a custom data read and set the tool to read KR and the KS counter (along with IAC position and Spark Advance).
On the first hard acceleration, KR read 0 the whole time I floored it up to 80+. Felt nice. The KS counter however showed 10.
Second acceleration, KR read 0, spark advance was 12*, but KS counter jumped to 17.
Third...fourth...I got a mere 1 degree of KR once I hit 91mph. As far as KR goes, that'* all I saw. 12* spark advance. When I was done joyriding, the KS counter read 44!
WTF is going on? The counter is supposed to show how many times knock is sensed, but why did I have no KR? Should I pay more attention to KR than the KS counter? Afterall, if no timing was retarded, knock must not be bad.
