Well, look at this. SSExi is out of the shop under her own power.
Ya, she needs a bath, real bad.
I plan to do that as soon as I get back from picking up my son.
Took her for a little ride. Dang, I'm happy.
Right now the timing is a bit low, around 25* when driving, and about 16* under a heavier load. I've got a bit more testing to do, and need to replace the oil pressure sender I broke. Once that is done I can start the tuning. My LTFTs seem to be real good, but I want to get them closer to zero. As I said, timing is low, I hope to add a few degrees to that. But all in all, she pulls real good. Only got on it up to 70% throttle, and she whined a bit.
Now, I'm sure your asking, what did I do to fix the problem. Well, let me say that right now I hope I fixed the problem. I had no KR on this drive. Before I couldn't even get out of the driveway and I was seeing up to 15* After all the changes I was convinced it was not real KR, so I went in to the tune and opened the Knock Retard Attack Rate vs RPM table and turned down the settings in the 0 to 2400 RPM range. I didn't turn it off, just turned it way down.
