I am approaching this from the need for some safety against detonation. I have a friend in AZ that builds 400-800 HP Turbo Porsche's every day. I can't afford one nor is that what I wanted for a casual driver. Porsche HP has never been an issue of mechanics just an issue of money.

The particular WMI unit I'm getting has level, flow,clog safety built in. It will divert boost to wastegate spring pressure or turn off EBC controller and retard my timing upon any failures.

Knock sensors on a Porsche motor are a nightmare and to get a system that works costs a fortune. I can see the need for that expense on a high dollar race application but on a street car it's not cost effective.
