According to Electromotive, if you have detonation, the toothed wheel starts jerking about, causing the overall timing to retard itself. At least thats why they clain you don't need a knock sensor that they do sell.

Anyway detonation would seem like it would severly overload the brearings which causes those squiggley worm like things in the bearing. I don't see any here.

A big PS Exactly what info, what source is there on an electromotive ingntion system causing detonation due to any means, let alone reduced spark. Even a 1960 Porsche with a stock single coil and distributor has not had this problem as far as I know. The electromotive system is known for delivering a constant ammont of energy, Joules, to each plug all the way up to 18000 rpm , so this seems like someone who is just spouting off hearsay or worse.
