This is the exact type of comment that is garbage. You're reciting some nonsense you saw and just repeating it...no actual experience or knowledge of the system. The knock sensors and timing system on these vehicles are very advanced..you don't make more power by just shutting sensors off.

Yea, that's not going to fly on it's own. Gong to have to do better than that.

Nice Run! And just to clear the air! Keep on Truckin!


When ever you see someone post about SSi turning off knock sensors just know they are coming from 1 of 2 places or both.

1- They do not knock knock sensor configuration, control, the use, or how to log and interpret.

2- They just spread hate and lies for whatever agenda they may have.
Most Ford vehicles come with a global knock sensor system. 95% or so do use this. So when logging you will use the standard "knock sensor" pid or dmr. If any Cyl detects knock it will "globally" subtract as a whole from every single cylinder the amount that the one cyl is detecting. It will show up in that particular pid with numbers usually varying from plus or minus up to 8.
Some vehicles use an Individual Cylinder knock system. When a vehicle uses an individual cyl knock system to log correctly you must pick individual pids for each cylinder to see it working. In an individual cyl knock system, the global knock will always read 0 because the global knock isn't being used. Pretty straight forward.

To log individual knock control correctly with some vehicles such as SHO's and Explorer Sport it can present some challenges because the pids and dmrs may not be present in the logging configuration for a given strategy.

Most people who know racing and high performance know the benefit of using individual cylinder control for both fuel and spark for power and efficiency. Knock sensor control is no different. Why penalize every cylinder because one determine a degree of knock? We don't. It's just not smart and certainly is not efficient at all.

Knock sensors have a great amount of adjustability on top of what system it uses. How much it can add, subtract, what etc they come on, rpm in which they are to be used, and adaptive functions. We actually extend their range of use as well over factory settings in most cases.

KNOCK SENSORS ARE CRITICAL!! You CANNOT shut off the knock sensors and run well. This is just stupid ignorant talk at best.

If you see a the log and it shows "0" on "Knock" now you know why. It isn't being logged correctly. It isn't using the correct logging for the configuration being employed. If you see 100, 500, 10000 on individual cyl knock it isn't logged correctly either. This use requires more time and attention from the tuner and customer education.

Could be the first? Would be worth following as I do actually believe innocent until proven guilty. My issue is your blanket statement. "Truth be told we still haven't had a failure." Every tuner has had a failure and to think you guys haven't is just silly.

SSI has had failures ... My Goodness they have and continue to have catastrophic engine failures. It got so bad at one point that Shawn confided in me that he was quite worried. Additionally, he was moving threads of failures on his forum to an Admin section that I created that was out of view of the general public.

Geez - poor Akray had 2 engine failures ...

The list of failures on SSi tunes is long and plentiful. Let's at least deal with reality.

Thank you for your rant jwanck. Your tune sure has changed since you left SSi. Even to the point you now are completely done a 180 on the tunes causing failures. You will not get a rise out of anyone here though so please carry on.

As far as the post that was linked Shawn, myself and others are working with him to get him taken care of and to find the root of the problem. Be it good or bad I will openly update the linked thread with the outcome. I am in contact via pm and text with the owner of the truck.
