Default The Knock Box

GarageGT introduces "The Knock Box" to the US market, a key element for ignition mapping.

More info can be found on http://theknockbox.com.au/

Retail pricing will be anounced in Vendor/For Sale section. Other vendors/tuners are welcomed to inquire about wholesale pricing.

Quote by Greg Smith, designer of "The Knock Box"

"Over the last 20 years I have worked for companies such as,

Porsche cars Australia
Motec Australia
Various performance car companies and race teams

As a result of a lot of performance engine tunning, I found that there was not a good and affordable tool available for listening to engine knock. There are some basic ones on the market as well as some really good ones, some cheap and some too expensive. As a result of this problem, I have decided to make and sell one. As all engines with their latest designs, it is getting harder to hear engine knock, especially in quiet engine dyno rooms, or over loud exhaust, or tyre noise on chassis dyno's.
The original conception of design came from the factory Nissan team in Australia when they were racing the Nissan GTR back in 1992.

At that time there was nothing available for listening to engine knock, so a friend of mine, who was the chief electronics engineer for the team, was commissioned to develop one, which he did.

Like most of these in house inventions, it sat on a desk doing nothing for 10 years until now. In conjunction with him, I have taken that product and released it to the world.

THE KNOCK BOX USES

2 Bosch knock sensors that have individual frequency adjustment
High quality noise reduction aviation headset
High quality power and sensor looms
Tough extruded alloy case
Over a year of testing both in Australia and worldwide to selected testers,these include Motec Australia, Motec New Zealand, Motec Dubai, as well as the leading 3 ford factory teams in super car racing. Also top engine builders and dyno manufactures here in Australia.
Over 60 units have been made and sold."

There was a thread on this a while ago. I think it was in the 4 figure range.

Ignition mapping is the thoughest task in tuning. Considering the cost of rebuilding a damaged block, I think The Knock Box is totally worth every $ for the serious tuner. If we can arrange a group buy, I have some decent pricing..
