there is no magic number that suits all cars when timing is involved, as mentioned already, 2 similar cars may require different spark values, which is why one reason generic tunes are not a good idea.

As far as a safe number that's an individual thing and engine design can have an affect on this as well, but I have to have a laugh when I see guys posting on here about there tuner is that good that there was not a sign of ping during the whole tuning process, great but how close to the knock threshold are they, you do not know this until you get it to ping lightly and then back away from that point.

Hopefully your tafe has a wolf or microtech etc for you guys to play with, these offer live tuning but are very very basic compared to the late model factory ecu and will be easier to learn on before venturing onto more complex systems

I get the feeling that your talking about me Mick. Is it possible that some tuners are better, and more experienced than others. Therefore having a fair idea of thresholds, thus not having to venture into undesirable conditions ?

Cheers

talking about a few actually, but unless a tuner has a crystal ball, then no, nobody knows until that limit has been reached, they can guess, but as mentioned earlier all cars are different.

Many people rate their tuner on how much power the car makes, to be honest making power is the easy part, get the afr where you want it, get the boost where you want it and then feed spark to it anyone can do that, there's no magic, driveability and manners combined with power, show more about the tuners skill than the power output.

I see all sorts of dyno charts posted here and elsewhere, many look very good but again do not tell the full story, some look very average but the customer is happy anyway.

Iam all ears and really want to disreguard what I think I know for what I can prove and learn

Earlie days and ill up date as I learn for anyone else who maybe intrested

All I know is that they have autronic sm4 units and its all real time stuff, the hot tip is its easier to tune on the engine dyno and progress from there

The teacher has already said partial throttle conditions is where we will spend a good amount of time so looking forward !!

My brief to RDP was safety as the priority. Now, "if we put 9 degrees in at 4000rpm with your mods. We would have seen pinging. that's what many years of dyno tuning 100's of XR6 Turbo's will tell you. Now when you have done enough of these things you will learn where the thresholds are". But seeking to always hit the ping threshold, I believe your working on the edge. Which could end badly. So no Mick, I don't agree with your philosophy at all.


Cheers

most fairytales start with "once upon a time" I think that should be included somewhere in your post

have a nice day.
