I recently sourced a used CT-E kit, and would like to replace all the o-rings. I have the sizes, just unsure of the material they used. Nitrile or viton seem to make sense, can anyone with experience chime in as to what came with the kit, or what is recommended?
Viton is what you should look for. Has a much higher heat resistance.

My Hondata is registering knock when driving under 3K. The knock is primary on "KCount2" is this normal? Should I maybe try different spark plugs I currently have NGK (1422) ILKR8E6. Thanks.

Is your ac on? It's common to get false on #2 Since the sensor is mounted close there.

Also, who tuned the car? Did they tune the part throttle?

Post up a datalog if you want and we can go over it. As dpetro1 explained, false knock on a supercharger setup under casual driving can be common if the tables for detecting it aren't modified appropriately. If you aren't seeing anything (or hearing anything) out of the ordinary on the logs during the "knock" event then it is most likely false knock.

Also, there isn't anything wrong with those plugs. I've been using them a while. They should look and perform well provided the engine is healthy and the tune is on point.

Thanks, BWill9886 I spoke with my tuner JaviTune and he said that it was due to the torque load at low rpm. He said that its fine, and gave me some tips on changing my driving style now.

I had the same issue. It all depends on the quality of gas in your area. I use 6 ounces of Boostane per tank for peace of mind. If you have E-85 in your area that would work too. I don’t like the idea of having knock. You shouldn’t have to change your driving style on your car.
