    so im guessin its pretty accurate..
    where is the sensor at?
    try leaning it out and see if that fixes the knock, just keep it under 12.5 to be safe

    i thought leaning it out would cause more knock.
    i dont want to go too lean because my egt sensor/gauge wont read past 700 degrees C

    yes but running it too rich can cause knock too, as long as your wideband isn't passing 13.0 @ WOT in any gear, then you won't be causing detonation, if you see the knock is just as bad after leaning it out, then its somethin else
