I have a 12pin OBD1 ALDL cable hooked to my 1994 z28 M6. I literally just today read my base tune and have been looking at it and comparing it to some other free tunes ive found around the web. I have Pace setter long tubes , 1.6 RR and a cold air intake so ive been looking for a tune that fits the description. found one literally just called 94 A4 (automatic) longtubes , 1.6rr. But im not sure if i can flash that tune on the car since the tune was done on a automatic, will it effect my manual trans vehicle. I have alot of options when i open the tune for all of the automatic transmission configs for both MY BASE M6 tune and the Longtube tune. what all would i need to disable to use this A4 tune or is it not possible? I have access to both tunercats and Tunerpro.

I suggest you go to the following site and ask Salomon. He is an expert in the tuning game. www.lt1pcmtuning.com

You can also do a search for Stevo's automatic tuning app for lt1 cars. By using his app you can input the mods you have and his app will write a bin file for upload to your computer.

Thanks for the reply! im actually using solomans website lol, but i found the answer to my own question, i just copied all of the tables i wanted (spark,maf) and pasted them into my current tune. However Now im getting 10 degrees of knock retard only at WOT , so im questioning whether im getting false knock or not. 3500-4500 rpm WOT 55mph-81mph a constant 8-10 degrees. Nothing down low, i havent tried a loaded low rpm yet.

Many people who do mods on a lt1 engine get knock retard. The old way of preventing this was to use a lt4 knock module. Unfortunately, your have more luck finding a living T-\Rex then a lt4 knock module.

Since full roller rockers make more noise, the standard lt1 knock module mistakes the noise for being knock. It then has pcm retard timing at higher rpm & throttle opening.

Ok cool, i have to ability already to disable and or reduce the knock retard, however i did run some 91 + octane booster and it did reduce the amount of knock i picked up.
