anyone know how a old-skool knock sensing ignition will react to boost? I have a 16v knock box that I was running im my turbo 2.0 8v, I'm considering putting it back in to see if it solves any of my power issues. I did a search and it looks like a few people have run this setup, and that the knockbox's map "can" detect boost... but I was just wondering if anyone knew anything more on the subject. I'd also like to know what max advance these boxes are setup to run.

Re: need some knock sensor/boost combo info (sporter)

I couldn't tell you max advance. But I can tell you that Renner Performance (a tuner in SoCal) is making 285whp on pump gas with one of those damn things! I wish I knew how...
I'm pretty sure they only have a 1 bar MAP sensor (i.e. they see no boost)
