I did change to larger 28.8# injectors for the Dyno pulls and he said he mapped the computer for those first, he said it might be crap gas remnants of fuel injector cleaner/octane boost that might be in the tank.

I did hook it up to a handheld OBD2 scanner my mechanic friend has and we went for a drive and he said everything appeared to be fine regarding the timing being retarded by the computer, it only pulled 3* at most and it was all between shifts so it may be taken care of now, I just wish I knew for sure, I need to strap her down to a dyno again and find out come spring.

Do you recall off hand what your AFR was at WOT? I find that if KR comes and goes, never at the same place, it'* generally false. If it hits at the shift points, it'* something with the transmission making noise. If it hits and holds on, it'* to much timing and real knock.

AFR was steady through all the pulls, I do not remember what it was exactly, I remember recalling it was a tad on the rich side but was remarkably flat compared to what my Camaro was when I had it dyno tuned, he only could pull 4hp more out of the car with a dyno tune than it had baselined which I found interesting since my Camaro was able to baseline 386 and end with 406, he blamed it on the KR.

Looks great. New Era is a great shop to work with from what I have seen and heard. Where in the Western, NY area are you?

Wow, small world, I actually bought the Corvette from a NYS trooper who lives in Binghamton who owned the car for years. I work right down down the street from RIT on Jefferson road too.
