TS50 Pinging

hey guys, my old man owns a series 3 TS50 (5.6 stroker) auto and when he floors it (in any gear) it pings really bad between 4750rpm to redline. anyone got any idea of what it could be? he rarely thrashes it so the motor isnt tired or wornout. has this happened to anyone? any info would be sweet, cheers.

Re: TS50 Pinging

I only use 95 Ron on my TS50 (98 is almost impossible to get in Tassie, and is $ 1.40 a litre, only available out of drums) and mine hasnt pinged at all
Get them to find the cause, if that dealer cant fix it, maybe look at another service dealer

Re: TS50 Pinging

Strange they had the same troubles in the States too with the last of the Mustang 5 Ltr eec v's SN 95's...Colder plugs may help but it sounds like too much spark.. Too advanced...
