well who really knows when knock occurs,or more to the point, when it WILL occur so we base our mods on prevention.You can go ahead and not install an intercooler because you only run low boost but it`s a bad idea,heat kills motors. l don`t see it much here but water injection/water methanol is a legitimate alternative to air/air or air/water intercooling. This WI system would allow quattro to keep the short engine lid and leave the current turbo system intact, no matter how you call it a turbo Porsche in Vegas needs thermal help. Check out the efficiency of WI in hot weather compared to air/air and you`ll find it`s worth investigating even on lower boost settings,heck people install it on N/A motors to protect from heat..
