It won't tell you if det is actually occurring. The best method is to have a a set of det headphones which are used to listen to sound at the block. Jez uses these for mapping. Not very practical for everyday driving though...

    Take my word for it though. If you are running the standard JDM map, which is setup with more advanced ignition and fuelling for 101 RON fuel, running 97/98 RON and high boost won't go. The JDM map is leaned off mid range. This is where det will occur.

    When I got my Emanage mapped on the S15 for the first time by Jez, he confirmed that det was occurring at 0.8/0.9 bar on the standard map and running Optimax.
    Thanks for that, I will keep it in mind.

    So will you say for sure that if I keep the boost around 0.75 bar then it will be ok. Or should I get some tuners to check it out for me, coz I dont want to blow my enigne
    Thing is mate you will probably be OK running 0.7-0.8 bar, for the most part, but to be honest I cant understand after spending what is a reasonable sum on a car why you wouldnt just buy an aftermarket ECU, or have your stock ECU remapped by Jez. It'll be the best money you ever spend on the car and will gain you a lot more for not a great deal of outlay than things like exhausts etc.

    Just remember that you don't have to slash out on a PFC. You can have the same degree of mapping by getting one of Jez's chips for ?295 (including mapping specifically for your car).

    Same here.
    I could have the same thing done locally. But it would be cheaper to have Jez flown to Sweden and back with his equipment for the mapping. I also think he would have more experience with the SR20DET then most Swedish tuners.

    Yeah, know that. But JP825 is in London and Manchester, so not that far for him. Also not far for Ming either... If you WILL live near the Arctic Circle...
