What is an acceptable level of knock?

Hello all,

My 2009 Fa5 is currently running a flashed Flashpro Stock Preset Tune. A 40 minute drive (mostly cruising with several pulls) has my knock sensor picking up 167 knocks. Are these just false positives? What is an acceptable level of knock count? I am aware that the knock sensor is closest to cylinder 2. I am worried because I will be boosting soon, and would like to be sure that my engine is in healthy condition.

My mods include:
Skunk2 Megapower Header
Tsudo Catback
Stock intake
Hasport 70a Rear motor mount

I have the datalog but I cannot upload to the forums (size too large)
