yeah, 0-60 octane booster didnt do **** for me at claims to raise it by 10 pts, which = 1 octane pt, so it would make 93 octane 94 octane......i didnt see any diff with that. i tried lucas octane booster which is "not street legal" for some reason and also raises octane by 3x as much as the leading octane booster, so really, that would make 93 octane something like 96 octane gas.........the first time i used it, it reduced the pinging, so i tried it again last night when i filled up again, and i tipped into the throttle to see if it pings, i got nothing, so i think it had to be the gas, b/c after putting lucas octane booster through two fill ups, i cant hear the pinging anymore

The ones in the turbo coupes are overly sensative, to where road noise will sometimes trigger then, and cause the EEC to pull timing, have they gotten them sensative to the proper frequencies or are they just messing with the overall sensativity and hoping to get it right?
The EEC learns part throttle fuel corrections, which are not going to change from driver to drive. Its all in his head.

Thats one of the problem with some ford knock sensors, they are too sensitive, or deaf all together.

The mach 1 knock sensors are calibrated very well to listen for the characteristic frequencys of knock (and this varies from an iron block to an aluminum block). Its also important to only look for knock when it could actually be occuring (after the plug is fired), this helps weed out background noise.
