I'd run cow piss if it would stop the ecobust from pinging like the Chinese national team at light throttle until the engine is fully warm. The dealer kept it for a whole week... "unable to detect spark knock". I retrieved the car, left the lot and got the knock pulling away from the first stop light. Idiots.

I suppose I could go out and buy a Cobb or something and record my own logs to show them but I shouldn't have to.
