dont waste your money on the ARP studs.

you can get 7 sets of regular saab head bolts for the price of one set of the arp studs.

nick and vigge both use stock head studs, and make >500wheel horsepower. there is no need to go with ARP studs at $200 a set

alrighty .... so, i've been changing things, trying a bunch of stuff .... with no really success .... so i hooked up a knock LED ... and found my issue

from 0 to 5-7ish PSI im getting around 14 something on my wideband
from there its quickly goes to 9.5 to 10 on the wideband
its there for a little bit then i get knock
then leans right out from there


so I am now assuming that my tune is eff'd lol

just thought i'd share whats up with my car, incase someone else has this issue later, and reads this topic to try and figure theirs out lol




but i do have one question ... what can cause knock?
