It's important to monitor knock levels in your vehicle, as high levels of knock can potentially lead to engine damage. Knock levels are a measure of abnormal combustion in the engine. Higher knock levels indicate a greater likelihood of engine damage. Ideally, you want to keep knock levels as low as possible.
- Potential causes: There could be several reasons for increased knock levels. Here are a few possibilities to consider:
- Fuel quality: Ensure you are using high-quality 93 octane fuel from a reputable gas station. Poor-quality fuel can increase the chances of knocking.
- Tuning: Verify that your ktuner is properly calibrated and that the Stage 3 tune is appropriate for your specific modifications.
- Ignition timing: Knock can occur if the ignition timing is too advanced. It's possible that the tune you're using needs adjustment to optimize ignition timing for your setup.
