1997 993 Carrera - Pinging Engine

Hi Joel,I have been reading all the answers to the questions on the engine section, and have not found any reference to my question. But, more importantly, your answers are worth their weight in gold. By the way, I replaced my stock suspension last fall with ROW Sport Suspension, and your help was not only appreciated, but I could not have completed this without your experience.Enough brown nosing.I know the rest of the country is heating up, while here in Seattle we are approching 80 degrees. Here is my question: When the temp reaches 80, my 911 will ping slightly at 1800-2100 rpm, with very light throttle. With the A/C on, it pings worse. Otherwise the car runs and works perfectly, with little to none oil usage.I don't like the sound, and my first reaction is to have it checked out.Should I be concerned?
