i assume yes: just because the ecu isn't listening doesn't mean the UTEC isn't? dido for the knock light? or am i wrong and the utec and knock light are both being told by the ECU when to indicate knocks.....
Your assumption is correct. The UTEC and the KnockLight work independently from the stock ECU (as well as from eachother) and have their own knock detection capabilities. They listen throughout the entire rev band.
