My car is suffering from random moments of knock and its starting to piss me off. Not sure if its my valvetrain or pistons causing this because my head is upgraded and a little on the loose side. I started pulling timing in certain areas because of knock and it made it worse so i returned it to its original settings.
None of the knock is up top. Its all down low in vac or right before the transition into positive pressure with lite throttle. The ecu only registers the low knock in LearningView but it doesn't change the IAM.
I also think i've suck my intake tube shut on more than one occasion above 15

18 and 21 psi

I'm eager to learn and am getting pretty good at being wrong so please chime in.
(remember what psi absolute is before you make a duh you run 40psi comment)
