Default um yeah its bad

one ocasional knock isnt THAT bad, its not particularly GOOD, but its not the end of the world.

HOWEVER, detonation WILL kill your engine. and if you are getting ANY you need to log a few runs to nail down where it is, and fix it asap.
from what I have heard a knock count in the 1-3 range is nothing to freak out about, you should fix it, but its not going to kill your motor.
The good thing is if its a really low count (mine was 1 in 2 places)
you can add like.1 fuel to that one point and it will go away in most cases. or pull one degree timing. Neither of those will make any real difference in power output, but they will most likely fix the knock.

I am by no means any kind of authority on the UTEC, but I know a little. I would log a run, find it, try to eliminate it, or call TXS after you log it.
