A bud of mine does alot of chip tuning in the Audi circles, been working closely with VEMS lately, etc.

He just rig'd up this neat little concoction as he too is skeptical of knock sensors and 'normal' engine 'noise'. He wired up an adapter harness to a factory audi knock sensor to a standard microphone jack. Plugged that into a laptop PC with a set of race style headphones plugged into the headphone jack.

Which allowed him to produce this on a stroker '95 //S6 pushing around 400allwhp:

Pretty neat. He's a madman, gotta love it.
Interesting... Keep in mind that that has a crankcase and head come with water dampeners in it to quiet it down a ton. I think that it would not be hard to detect knock in that engine. There ain't no way a 930 engine sounds that tight with a microphone.
