No you shmo. The First pics are the casing apart I put the engine back together with the old 96 TB. Just to make sure everything worked. Now I got a 99 TB ( diffrent design ) These are pics with the TB of with the SC on the engine running for 2 weeks.

Ok I just wanted to put a final update to give the results.

Running a 3.4 pulley at WOT I am getting 0.0 KR . Under partial throttle conditions I am getting 2 degrees. I am guessing this is false due to a broken motor mount ( I am fixing it this weekend ) . I am going to order a 3.3 pulley once I make sure the 2 degrees of knock I am getting is fixed, overall I am satisfied with the results.

You can't scan for KR this time of year and expect to have any useful data. You have to scan in the warmer temps of late spring and early summer at LEAST.

Zero KR now could be 10 degrees in the summer.

The car was scanned in 60 degrees weather here in New York ( we are having Very weird weather) with the car running at 212 degrees (I had been driving for hours before scanning) also I had no heat sheild on my CAI so actually it was a HAI, the IAT
was reading 80 degrees during the test as well. I CAN scan for KR in the winter because if I am getting 3 degrees of knock in the winter I might get 25 in the summer. I own a scanner and will continue to scan as it gets warmer. But I appreicate your concern . Oh and one more thing I have 10% ethanol in my gas in this state .
