Would anyone like to take guess at how long the pistons will survive while
this is happenning?  Assuming that the knock sensors are ok the pistons
will probably survive, otherwise the motor is only seconds away from
rebuild.  BTDT
Personally I wouldnt run a modification the lead to detonation, the results
are just too expensive & show a lack of development.

I was talking to Ned over the weekend (to retrieve my mac01) & mentioned
this thread. His reply was " I feel like a fighter pilot, I have a
collection of TAP labels from their chips on the wall.  The kill list is
growing by about one & a half a month"
