Ok I found that my wastegate selonoid vacuum tubes where crossed . fixed that. I does not ping as much now . What else should I look for? Should I throw in a bottle of Octane boost? Also my factory boost gauge is not working. The first digit lights up and that is it. I am noticing also when I start gassing it that llit digit disappears. Any ideas? Thanks Mike

Octane boosters are worthless. They boost octane by tenths of a percent. Factory boost gage is also worthless. If you don't have a boost gauge, you don't know how much you are boosting and you will damage your engine. Turn down the boost until it stops knocking and get a boost gauge and a Scanmaster.

Good advice from Chris....without knowing your boost level and lo octane and no scantool you're playing Russian roulette with your engine. If you really can't swing a scantool at the time at least get a boost gauge and drop boost to an acceptable level. Yoe're flirting with disaster. :usa:
