I use the road tuning and am very frustrated that my ignition tuning is not optimal. In your opinion, are knocking caused by too much ignition advance as dangerous as knocking caused by too lean AFR or excess heat?

Is it too dangerous to deliberately make your engine knock too far ahead of the ignition to better determine the MBT point and then delay the ignition to create a safety margin?

I highly suggest you use a good quality knock headset like the
