In my other post i stated it seems like the car was pulling back so i disconnected the knock sensor and wow what a difference. Now when i am at wot in 2nd gear it breaks the tires thats how i its supposed to be. I cant hear any pinging so i dont think its under detonation under heavy load. My question is when it pluged in why does it pull the timming out could there be some noies that its picking up that i dont hear and is bad, or mabey its a false signal from a noise that is nothing bad what you guys think.

Maybe a bad knock sensor?

These engines have a decent amount of valvetrain noise so it will fool the knock sensor. Just keep her filled with premium and happy motoring.

There is a reason the knock sensor gets torqued to "6 inch lbs" !
