Oh. I figured you'd travel? I'm a full quality check support service, just so you know.

I already had my QC team comb through it. We like to keep these things in house.

Hmmmmm, I smell betrayal with a side of damn gurl that’s nice
Betrayal? Sorry I didnt buy another econobox that tries really really hard to be quick-ish.

I still havnt made an account on the 6g mustang forums. I just lurk. So wipe those tears off your face, lil' man.

There's a chance it could be something real as well, don't just write it off as false knock, check the #4 plug and compare it to the others to see if there are signs of it running lean or rich.

The datalogs showed it pulling 1-3 degrees 3700 to 5100 rpm then correcting to full advance matching the rest of the cylinders.

I'll pull the plug, but with it correcting fully out, i doubt its real knock.

I'm just glad the same cylinder knocks in the same location on both the stock tune and my tune that way we know it's not my tune lol :)

Lol, I'm really happy it corrects out!

I'll do my knock witchhunt, this one is very minor compared to the **** I went through with the ST, lmfao

I'm not worried, she'll be right as rain in no time.

It's pretty reassuring to hear your logic about why it's false knock when it corrects itself out during the same pull. Same exact stuff I was seeing on mine (cylinder 4 specifically) before I started swapping plugs and coilpacks, then quadruple tightened everything up & clear of the knock sensors. Silly cars... Wish they would let me beat on them without breaking so much, LOL.

Yeah, it's most likely the passenger side header tapping the bellhousing or AC lines. Just gotta get in there and adjust. No biggie. The Stang is very easy to work on.

I bolted on soooo many different parts on the ST, dealt with bad false knock in 2 or three of those setups, had to hunt it down and sort it.
