As per tuning the high boost V6s, just like any other application if you are getting REAL knock retard you need to reduce timing. If you are getting false knock you can de-sensitize the sensors some to account for it. If you run 93 octane, at your boost level you should be fine without having to add Torco, just reduce timing as I said IF its true knock. However, this is hard when doing mail order because you are relying on the other party to listen for this knock that you are accustomed to hearing.
Sounds like me every time I do drive the car lmao. That's why I can't get no better than 18 mpg all around lmao. Got a good tune update from Vince this week mpg jumped up to 23. Now back down as I have a heavy foot lmao.
