    I wish this article would have been created years ago! Finally some detailed parameters to help us tell when we should be worried and when to relax. I've been thinking my car was knocking for 3 years until I read this. THANK YOU!

    Great article. This will help validate (or not) those claims made by folks in sites like iWSTI. I also thought my STI(s) were knocking going by what members of the said forum were saying. There were some quotes such as: "...a good tune should never see knocking..."

    Now, to improve on an already great product. Could Cobb create an algorithm that will automatically flag a feedback know based on the parameters discussed above. And when one selects the flag, and click on it, it can elaborate as to which parameter mentioned above was fulfilled in order to become a concern.

    And while we're on this topic: I've been making suggestions as to provide an option to turn some of the monitors/gauges into a EKG-like monitor, where you can see the last 10sec (or so) of activity. In addition, include the ability to pause recording so that if while driving you notice a "FEEDBACK KNOCK" incident and you catch it within those 10sec, you'll be able to determine the cause of the FK incident by lining up the FK incident with the rest of the EKG-like gauges.

    This would not, by any means, substitute "DATALOGING", but it would supplement it by showing cause and justification to datalog.

    Let me know if you need a graphic of the EKG-like gauges if you don't understand my explanation.

    If my DAM goes down to 0.000 on my v3 will it show 0.000/1.000?
