Why do you have the Apexi unit? Get rid of it and leave your ECU stock. Get a new TPS sensor.

i have the afc just for added tunability. i know it was probably a waste but i like it. anways the timing seems to be right. i followed the repair manual to a T on how to time it. the shop that rebuilt the head said that they took care of the valve play and said it shouldnt tick at all. but its definitly knocking! i dont know what to do!!!!!!!!!!!

What are you going to tune?? Its stock...nothing there. Try sensors first, like they said, TPS, then move into internals.
