before making any changes make sure you read the help file topic about the knock control tables. http://www.hondata.com/help/flashpro/kn ... tables.htm
Spunkster, tks for the info.. Ya.. I understand.. had read it upteem times.. Again, the Honda knock control is only designed to compensate for different quality fuel. It will not (quickly) actively retard and advance the ignition as some other make vehicles will do. If you de-sensitize the knock sensor by adjusting the knock sensitivity table because of noisy cams, don't expect the knock control to detect knock reliably
The knock retard happens anywhere where KIL is low (maybe less than 5), actually I also dont understand when it came in. In the help file it was mentioned only when KIL is negative, but reality is not so.. it can retard at cells where KIL is 7 or 8 degree, or even higher? I don't know.
I can also decipher it as if value in KIL table is more than value in Knock retard [KIL of best octane(value in MBT table + value in KIL table) - KIL of worse (KIL of best octane - knock retard)], MBT is already running in lowest octane, therefore there wont be any knock retard.
Therefore as long as value in KIL table is lower than value in knock retard, there might be a chance for ign to be retarded. And this retard will be reflected in knock retard in the sensor. However if KIL is lower than MBT, it will automatically be used as the advance.
However in my log, i noticed that some of the time, timing is much lower than the MBT set, where there are no retard and KIL is positive. Why is this so? And it is during such instances, I've got dozen of knocks.. Maybe timing too low causing the knocks?
I guess we need more information on the knock control portion. THe help files are too vague. Or anyone who is experienced care to explain?
