Otherwise I'd just make sure you're familiar with logging and making sense of the learned fuel and knock-correction values and making appropriate changes to your tune to keep them within safe limits.

As I learned, you can spin a rod at 30% throttle in 5th or 6th gear cruising down the highway if you get into heavy knock conditions, no dyno will pick that stuff up, that's gotta be done on the road.
The guy I'm using is doing it on the road...he has a great rep in the area and is a Cobb guru. Thanks!
