Emre: You must have missed the fact that we run 94 Chevron with
techron already in it. Plus we have relatively cool weather. All reasons
why we shouldn't be pinging on "pastore" software that was sold as plug
and play, no issues software. Rather than ruin my engine with the
pinging I was "dreaming", I switched to MRC software. Rich, yes. Pinging,
no. Sean D.'s Dahlback (MTM) software makes a few more ponies but the
cost of the software was very high (US$900 IIRC).

No one is saying you and your cronies aren't pinging, we are saying
that not EVERYONE pings with that software. Maybe it's your crappy
Remember, MRC software runs VERY rich, so pinging would be a non-issue
with that software, but so would a loss of power. I want to go UP the
slippery slope, not DOWN.
40 valves 'O plenty!

Regardless, I would still expect him to have problems when he goes to sea level... and substantial additional programming will be required to make it work right down low.
