I'd look at your sensor connections. Usually a bad ground will cause the level to float. Make sure it is clean between the block and sensor and double check your connections. It should be fairly easy to ohm out the wires if you are handy with a multimeter. The manual for the EMS has the connector pinouts for it in the back of the book.

You can also hook up the laptop and wiggle the connector and see if you can get the knock volts to go to zero.

Check out your log at 16.500. There is a little spike of 0.97V at that time frame where the timing advanced almost two degrees. Might not be anything significant, but then again may be worth looking at.

What are you using to log? The PC or the EMS? (not that it matters for the constant 0.2V Knock Volts).

I am usually showing about 0.0195 of knock volts when there is zero noise.

Oh and slow the hell down...lol.

I understand that this is an older thread but I looked at your log and that was certainly a sensor issue. when the knock is linear with rpm it is usually just noise. there was a spot in there that looks like it could actually have been knock though
