Default knock reduction

was playing with my scanner tonite and came up with 6 degrees of knock reduction while accelerating from a dead stop up to about 80mph. Just wondering if that is too much. I'm stilltrying to figure out this scanner thingy and thought I'd post again. Anybody know of a good website that can explain code readers and scanners?

Everything is stock and am running 92 octane fuel. The car was just purchased and am trying to get a few bugs out of it.

First off KR is never a good thing. The more you mod the less forgiving knock is. If you are stock and to have 6* of KR it is not a good thing but it shouldn't cause any engine damage. There are many (simple) things out there that should help you lower your KR.
