Help please! Knock issues detected with btssm

Recommended Posts

So I discovered the wonderful world of btssm and am loving it so far ... however when I had reset my ecu I had noticed a couple knock issues detected ... done just over 1000km since the reset on mostly highway conditions as well as some spirited driving over the maungamuka gorge (the log data linked shows the 8ish minute long and fun drive) ... after reading the log and checking my LV I am abit worried as most of the knocks come on at 4500rpm ... now it appears the LV has knocked my ecu down a few notches in the way of power... 

 

First off I am curious as to how this would happen on a bog stock 2006 JDM legacy gt spec b 6sp manual ...

 

From my understanding this year was the change over year for example my turbo is supposed to be a td04 (from what i have read) but is instead a vf45 ... also being stick max boost target is 14.5 however I'm getting spikes up to 17 in some cases but more commonly around 15.5 for longer than a second 

 

Any help or suggestions are much appreciated 

 

Thanks

Wouldn't be super concerned about the knock. Without a tune for the fuel we have in NZ it'll never be perfect. A degree here and there isn't major

You want to post up a LV snapshot from BTSSM

Learning view snapshot is key.

 

You will get some knock on nz fuel, normally you get a few events that the ecu learns around, pulling a small amount of timing here and there.

sooo ... i did an oil change using good ol golf 10w-40 and stp oil additive which is essentially a zinc mix and make the oil stick to the walls abit better .. checked that banjo bolt which was one hell of a bugger to remove so i just unscrewed it to have a quick look before putting it back in .. when i was putting it in i punched a hole in the side of the filter .. thought stuff it ill just put it back in as i need the car running (its a daily for the misus) ... gave it a quiet run for abit till it warmed up then done a pull from 0 to speed cut .. results are below .. looking over them it didnt make much difference however i see the exhaust vvt on right bank is doing the same damn thing  

 

New Btssm run sincee oil change 0 to speedcut

 

Thanks guys for your input

Dont add zinc to the oil its not a dirty old v8. Try a 5w30 full synthetic.

Not saying that will fix the issue but it may help.

 

Mangamuka not a bad drive. Guessing if youre local there worth noting theres only 95 which explains the knock count.

i was a local there haha .. its my home town so was just up there to visit family and friends .. but for an AWD the gorge is excellent for running through as it pushes every limit the car has .. I actually live in Atiamuri between Taupo and Rotorua where there is an excellent gull that has 98 .. of all the terrible reviews saying Gull is bad and to use the likes of BP or Mobil i dont understand why as is see BP/Mobil branded fuel tanks filling that service station up from time to time

Only reason people don't go for it is it's not a traditional 98 octane fuel, it's 91 or whatever with 10% ethanol to raise the octane rating up to 98.

      Hi Team,
       
      in the Market for a Manual Wagon to do some work on and improve. Saw this listing 
      https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/subaru/auction-2586721445.htm
       
      wondered what general issues you guys see in it? having almost 300k on the body and a unknown engine swap. It seems he has done a fair bit of work on pumps and pulleys and suspension components so seems fine to me?  Just never owned a Subi past 150kms. 
       
      Any redflags i should be looking out for here?

      hi guys im a noob when it comes to subarus, 
      i was wondering if a 06 legacy gt spec b jdm version has a catless uppipe and what other generation of parts would work on it and if it has a aftermarket ecu or just the stock ecu? 
      pics below (excuse the terrible English and whats the white cord for too?

      Can't seem to find any after market air intakes for JDM BP5s? Do Grimmspeed fit/work on JDM versions?
       
      Any recommendations would be awesome, thanks in advanced.
