    Maybe i should bring it back down to .8 bar so.. I wouldn't really be expecting to be getting 4 ron outta the octane booster but i do feel car is running way better using it.

    It might be worth your while investing in a knock sensor to keep an eye on your det.

    I've got one due...

    Knock = det

    The engine has a knock sensor, but the ECU doesn't make use of it. This gadget should let you tap into the ECU wire to take the necessary reading.

    Got a KnockLink first, but it didn't work.... They are sending one of the others as a replacement.

    Are these knock-sensors any good?
    I've heard the pick up al kinds of noises as detting, And sometimes doesn't pick up the detting at all?

    It's probobly better then nothing at all though.

    There is nothing better for picking up det than a set of det cans. However, not only would you look fooking stupid driving round with those on all the time, its also a bit dangerous

    I think the products most likely to suffer what you mention would be something like the KnockLink, which judges det based on only one rev location. The Knocklite uses several locations, so would be less likely to give false readings (read the blurb).

    They aren't infallible, but they are better than nothing at all. Also, don't think that getting an A/F meter on a wideband lambda will cover you. It'll tell you the A/F reading, but not if det is occurring...
