Carberry rom has only one timing map, ( make sure you are on the latest release 3.6.5 for knock control implementation ), and loves it SMOOTH, or else it hesitates bad. Make sure you set your initial IAM to 15 and let it rise. This is the only way I got all 3 KC modes working on mine...


I learned that not enough timing down low actually caused knock in my case... I added close to 15 degrees at some places, with impressive results.

Smooth that bitch out.

screenshot coming.

edit : knock sensitivity values are different on the carberry rom. Read on it. Can you feel the car hesitate ?

edit 2 : your timing map is all over the place. It cant be smooth like this!
Ok. I'll take your advice and make some changes. It is very sensitive to knock and even with my timing pulled it corrects in certain areas 1 degree. It doesnt change the IAM but i can tell its hunting. I need to just get a proper knock detection setup but i like the safety of the stock rom.

Thank you very much. I'm looking into this right now.

Another question... Do you feel safe running that much timing?
