Hey guys,

 

A friend of mine has been building these knock lights that work really, really well.  They are programmable, to use ANY knock sensor.  The only down side of this unit is that you have to wire in your own knock sensor, and you have to do some testing on it.  Not a big deal.  It comes with everything you need including the the USB cable for programming.

 

It comes with 5-6 ft of shielded wire ready to go as well too.  

 

Features:

LEDs to show intensity of the knock

It has a HEADPHONE jack (my favorite feature.  One wire to the knock gauge, and the other in to the Aux in of a radio).

It supports both digital and analog out.

He sales these units at 109 a pop, but obviously there is a discount as units sell.  

 

But I just wanted to gauge interest to see if anyone else would be interested.

I would be interested in one...wish the CDN dollar wasn't such a turd right now, but if we can get at least a little off, it would certainly be worth it. Seems like a reasonable price for what is all included. Even if group buy doesn't proceed, I'd be interested in where to buy one.

I have mine, been playing around with it, and different knock sensors.

Where would you mount the knock sensor on an L24?

Anywhere you want it.  You can filter out the knock noises.  So worst case scenario, you could mount it to the bolt on the header.  Definitely not ideal though

so it reacts a little differently depending on the sensor?

I'd assume you just tune it to the freq you calculate knock should be at/then it filters that band

Bingo.  There's actual software you use, and you can fine tune it.  I was just trying to find a good all around sensor (since i'll be using this on different cars to use for tuning).

Can you tap into the factory knock sensor (if you have something other than an L) or will that cause issues with the factory ecu?

I'm not sure.  I haven't tested it that way yet.  No cars that I own use the factory ECU.  I would imagine it would work if you used like a pass through style connection

Any update on this? I sold a few things on ebay and came into some paypal funds and am looking at getting some sort of knock detection for when I go to turn the boost up on the beast.

Ordered one up. Assembled is 125 + shipping.

He could do with a little more detailed info, but ihiryu described it well. Even at that price it's a full featured unit compared to what's out there.

I would buy a board and display unit. Fair price and better than eBay company crap.
