I had this same issue when I went FI the first time. I ended up tuning it myself and pretty much eliminating all the knock by just pulling timing from the BKT.

I as well never felt or heard any knock until I tapped into the knock sensor from the ecu harness and listened through my stereo.

Wish i could help you. It's a crappy thing to deal with.
Interesting. Well my car has 123,5xx miles and for bolt ons, it has stock SVT header, cat, flex, and flex back exhaust, and stock SVT airbox with K&N drop in filter along with Taylor 8.2mm plug wires. That's all I'm going to do for NA, currently saving for 5 speed swap and then turbo after that.

He's reffering to a setup like this where you can listen to your knock sensor through your in car stereo. Link to Illinipo's thread: Listen to your knock sensor!
