    holy &#$% my car just knocked hard enough to hear it!

    I really hope its just a case of poor fuel quality. But my car pinged like a out of time old v8 under heavy load and low octane gas. Thanks to new gauge it was about here.

    45 mph, third gear accelerating, half ish throttle and around seven pounds boost. Not like I was racing.

    Never backed off throttle faster without a deer in front of me. Didn't happen again, but I'm babying the car a bit. Been some rumors about the quality of 91 we have here.

    Oh. Today...98 and 30% humidity. Not terrible for a hot day. I've got half a tank to burn off before I can rule out fuel. Anything I should be looking out for? The car isn't running any differently at all baring my careful driving.

    O..no tatrix yet so I can't do it again and catch it. Yet, its now a priority though
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    What he said. If it was bad enough to hear, then what's going on normally that you aren't hearing? I'd be ordering that cable and staying out of boost til then.
