Correct me if I'm wrong:
From what I see, this doesn't need to be done on a reset car, unless there is another factor that prevents pulled knock timing from being re-added in this situation. I should be able to go grab my car as is(stock), make a run and produce the same timing changes. Unfortunately, I don't have any logging software, so I can't confirm this.
Are the rates of change in the algorithim same for adding & pulling ignition? Is there a time variable that is virtually non-existent after a reflash that has a lot of control after weeks/months that would prevent rapid timing change?
Thanks for info. I'll be trying this on my un-reset car just for the placebo effect!
