Seems OT, but where did you get this knock sensor system? Would it register knocking on an engine with its own knock sensors? Would it be quick enough? I've been running 91 octane (full gas no ethanol) during the winter even though technically my software requires 93 octane (only thing available is 94 10% ethanol)
