Even if you did come up w/something, the back pressure would be working against you- you'd have a kind of EGR deal going on if the back pressure was excessive and that could mask the detonation. Not one of my better ideas.

The plugs will begin to "pepper" if/when the aluminum of the piston becomes molten- you really do not want to see that, EVER!

BTW, what heads are you running?
