Two questions...my borderline knock table only goes up to 1.0 load...even after I modify the normalizers. The other tables (octane plug spark, spark adder after load, etc) scale up but not the BKT...am I adjusting the wrong normalizers for this? I'm changing the values in the table "Ynorm Borderline Knock 09"
Second is, since I'm using a J&S I want to turn down the stock knock sensor and let the J&S do the timing pulling correct? So I would subtract from the values in the tables under the Knock Sensor category? "Maximum amount of spark retard" and "Maximum value of slow correction".

If you give me a call Monday I will walk you through changing the norms to make sure you dont have a software issue

As for the J&S you want to just turn off the KS all the way and set all valuse in the KS to 0 before turning it off

Ah I figured out the BKT normalization. the BKT itself uses the normalizer from the MBT, by adjusting this I was able to get the BKT to be where I wanted it. Thanks for the info on the J&S Tom!

One more thing...I'm having an issue with it hunting at idle the spark goes all over from 7-14 with some spikes to 23 and you can feel it in the idle. The spark source is 9 so it's in control and everything else seems to be in check ISC hovers right around 0, stft are within 2-3% of 1.00..but it just doesn't want to stay in check with the spark. What could be possible causes of this?

That is a common issue with the SVT and SCT has no answer for it you will see your timing very low at idle and part throttle much lower then your Borderline tables command it to be. John is having the same issues

Hm well that kind of sucks...have you guys figured out any work arounds for it? In my case it's making my idle pretty rough.

Edit: I figured out my rough idle...it turned out to be the 65mm throttle body when I was n/a I never had a problem so I didn't look but I did just now and saw that the stop screw was backed all the way out...so I disconnected the IAC and set the idle using the screw, reconnected it and readjusted the ISC neutral air and the idle is much smoother and the spark values aren't going all over. :)
