A friend and I had a conversation/discussion/argument about engine detonation the other day. I have known detonation to sound like knocking against a thick metal surface, but my friend says it can even sound like an aluminum can crinkling or flopping around on the ground. What have you guys heard when detonation occurred in your engines? Can detonation occur AFTER a shift, but not during acceleration up to that shift point? Can a loose baffle in a muffler make the same noise? Thanks for your input!
