Knock Detector for Torque Pro

Knock Detector for Torque Pro


Check your gas engine for detonations ! Ensure that your everyday car or tuned machine is working fine and gas is good. You should have Torque Pro installed and OBD2 device connected. Knock Detector will:
- report detonations
- show throttle position
- monitor engine coolant and intake air temperatures
Knock Detector is Torque Pro plugin - install Torque Pro first and start Knock Detector from Torque's main menu and make sure OBD2 adapter is connected. While driving at low rpm on 3rd gear just press throttle to max position and wait a safe period of time. Test will start automatically and finish as you depress pedal. Notification sounds will be played. Test will cover the passed rev range. If testing on automatic gear box ensure that gears are not switched during the test.
Warning - please ensure safe driving conditions - highways only !!!

In order to work on all car models Knock Detector uses heuristic algorithm to find detonations. It is based on analysis of timing advance, throttle, revs and speed. On some ECUs it may report knocks but the reason could be timing retard because of specific factory tune.

Knock Detector will not report minor car specific knock events so it can also miss some detonations. However it will report ECU learned detonations. Such knock events will likely disappear at some moment. Detonations can be real or fake, they can appear and disappear, so there is no reason to worry if such are reported. Detonation may be caused just by depressing the throttle at high revs. Some stock ECUs pull timing 0.5 - 1.00 even on WOT so fake knock will be detected.

Engine coolant and intake air temperaturesare also monitored as major knock factors. Avoid spirited driving or testing when both values are not green - too cold or too hot temperatures can cause detonations.

More features are coming soon. Used every day on my heavily modified Subaru STI ! Drive safe and have fun !

Not functional on 05 prius Hooked it up, got on the interstate with it, test never ended. The status bar fluctuated and got as high as your screen shot for the app preview (63%)and thats it. I got the prius to 101mph and this thing never completed its task.

Cool Great app!! Does it take knock learn factor into consideration? If so, if there's no detonation in the test, the knock learn factor should be at 0?

knock knock? i bought the $5 torque pro app on my blackberry. i ordered the plax kiwi2 waiting for it in mail. than noticed their was a knock detector plug in which i cannot get for the blackberry so the $5 app and $80 wifi obd2 seems like a waste all i wanted to do was monitor KR in my boosted GTP without having to buy the aeroforce $250 gauge but i was foolish to think this lil apps can even compare to real tools for the job. so do i just find a android tablet and pay $5 again on that and than download this plug in free? or do you have blackberry version? sideloading snap store didn't work but almost. and will you ever bring out advanced EX for pontiac? i mean you have hyundai and kia over pontiac? lol thats cray cray. specially kia. main mission is to monitor KR knock retard. help me out jbox

Just an ornament Assuming it's hooked up/in correctly, it doesn't seem to do anything. The air temp always reads 32®, no matter the outside temp. The little bar moves, but never enuff to give a reading. I can only hold the pedal floored for so long. I"ll keep trying.
