    Scanmaster 2.0 Readings, Need Help with Knock

    How much boost are you seeing at WOT when this happens? Probably need to turn the boost down or the octane up. Scanmaster #s look good.

    TT chip or equivalent ASAP. Then you can begin a proper diagnosis of your idling issue which may or may not be associated (I'm leaning towards not) to the hypertech chip. Do you also have at least a scanmaster? If not it's a must

    Lurker to Owner!

    Until you really learn the car and the tuning aspects of it I would advise you to assume any knock you see is real knock and not to ignore it. So whatever it is you're doing when there's knock, stop doing that. In the meantime go about your upgrades starting with the fuel system and chip. Just...

    Exhaust cutout setup recommendations - please share yours!

    I just replaced mine. I searched hi and lo for a replacement. My original was even sold by a vendor here on the board a long time ago. I can't remember the name off the top of my head. Good quality piece. Couldn't find them ANYWHERE! So I went with QTP (quick time performance) begrudgingly. So...

    chrome plating removal

    Like the title says I'd like to remove the plating on my maf pipe and turbo shield. Then polish and leave bare. Any tips or tricks for a do at home job? Could I sand with maybe a 220 300 and finish with a 1200? Before I hit it with my polishing wheels? Wasn't sure how durable this shit is.

    Education on my turbo: Dave England PT67(76) P-trim turbo

I changed out the converter and upgraded to alkycontrol from an old smc kit. Cas V4 intercooler, 60lb inj and TT chip. Heads have only been cleaned up. Great street manners...

    Acceleration issues

    You haven't mentioned seeing knock when the car's giving you trouble. If you haven't seen any then proceed with your troubleshooting. If you have seen it then stop doing whatever it is you're doing when it happens. Then proceed with caution.

    Acceleration issues

    Every car is different but 128 is where you want to be. Above and its adding fuel due to a possible vacuum leak. Some say +10 is ok but I like mine at 128
