    the info was in the instructions which came with the kits. I dont have them now, long gone I'm afraid.
    It was most definately ethanol which was mentioned as not to use for pump damage would occur they said. That and the fact they all pretty much use the same pump, would not make me want to run ethanol

    Mr Bill sir:

    I see you run WMI on your racecar. How do you work around knock at gearchange?

    Do you think theres a possebility that Im reading false knock... I still think its the meth not reacting fast enough as I didnt have knock before I went on meth.

    Not sure if its false.. if you did'nt have it before, but do now, it would seem to be a delay type thing.
    what sort of level do you see? what sort of duration?

    when I logged it varied between 6-12 in pull. Talking 12 in pull all 4 cylinders :censored: So now Ive turned down boost and pull only 1 gear at a time until I get this sorted.

    Say it jumps to 7 pull in all 4 cylinders immediately after 3-4th gearchange it drops to like 1-3 pull 1500rpms later.

    I know its horrible. Nope, before I ran WMI and added timing I had no pull at gearchange. I went from Eurodyne pump man tp race map. That adds average 6 degrees and Ive tested to run with another 3 degrees on top of that all the way up to 30psi with no pull at all.... :)

    I NEED to get the gearchange knock fixed before next season or else I need to drive at 20psi and low timing.

    beware of massive cylinder pressures with timing like that

    i ran high timing, no det, but lifted the head stretching its raceware head studs

    I tee'd in a 1L aluminium bottle and that gave me about 1 sec delay on the spray. Logged a little tonight and its much much much better. even 0 knock in cyl 1 and 2. Max 4 pull in cyl 3 and 4. Sometimes 0 pull in all of them. I believe we can call this sorted. Thanks Bill, you saved the day, again (Y)

    first the flexi pipe now this... apparently you're the man with the master plan!

    Need your number on speed dial - for emergency use only ;)

    There is no downside to spraying after TB is closed is there? I noticed sometimes it pops and small flames out the back. Guess its the surplus meth burning... Doesn't bother me as long as it does no harm to the motor.
