Update. With the onset of the cold weather, the pinging is almost completely gone. Guess this should be a clue. Car is just about ready for winter storage, never been out in the snow and not going to start that now. I have a couple of things to do over the winter and I think I will switch to a 180 thermostat. The Hypertech chip is burned for a 195 thermostat ( at least that is the info I provided to them) so I dont quite understand why the cooler weather has this much of an effect. Anyway, thanks to everyone who provided help. Maybe I will try a new custom chip, set for 87 octane and a 195 thermostat, engine has 9:1 compression ratio. Keep warm, thanks, George.
