There are multitude of threads regarding KR, but I haven't found one yet that indicates how much is acceptable. Assuming that zero is ideal, what is an acceptable range? 2, 3, 4 ...?
Ten different people will give you 10 different answers. IMO, more than a couple of degrees anywhere in the RPM range is cause for concern. The PCM will sense knock and cut the timing back and report the KR's but that's just a reaction to the problem. I prefer to tune or build to avoid the problem before it happens. I am running 11 psi of boost and no matter how we tuned some KR's were still there. After installing the intercooler my KR's are now zero. I advise all those that wish to run a 3.4" pulley on the series V superchargers that an IC is a must.
