I cannot hear your engine to tell whether or not you are experiencing actual "ping" spark knock. But if it is indeed "ping" it has the potential to cause some major damage.
If you are unsure, don't push the engine. My V6 makes no out of the ordinary noises other than normal sounds that engines make. Keep us posted, and and if you have a gut feeling that something isn't right, don't get on it , till you find out for sure it isn't spark knock.
My post may be frivolous, but better safe , than sorry.
