Another fact often overlooked is EGT exhaust gas temp. If you have a bunch of timing, say north of 20 degrees on a high boost motor, even with an 11.5:1 or simaler afr- there is still chance for detonation because the cylinder pressure is so great that it heats everything up too much. Therefor turning things like ground straps on spark plugs and slight burrs in the combustion chamber into mini glow plugs and igniting the air/fuel at the wrong time.
