    Just recently noticed some noises that sound like pinging with hard acceleration, but it's intermittent. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Could be your gas octane is too low. Have you tried using different gas. It also pays to avoid any gas with ethanol added.

    Are there any gas stations without ethanol anymore ? In va i have not seen any without... also why does the ethanol matter ? ethanol only helps with octane... my other turbo car i ran maps for 95 octane... only problem i can see is maybe the fuel pumps can't handle the extra load ?
