[Diy_efi] Ignition retard
Tue Mar 14 01:39:22 UTC 2006
GM used on most of their 81-86 pickups a knock retard
module up under the dash, It would retard the timing
via the ignition module, using a knock sensor input,
and possibly a vacuum switch, I dont know much more
than how to bypass it though. Dustin Lof
