I had a stage 1 tune installed 6 months ago here in co
And after it was in installed we noticed a sparky rattling sound that the guy who installed it called pinging, he said I probably have watered down gas from an inferior gas station, I tried other stations and when I floor it im still getting that sound... how bad is that am I destroying my engine?

If its pinging, thats bad. If youre still going WOT while its pinging, Youre gonna regret that pretty quickly.

Stock tune and any decent Stage I (I have IPD) should be able to handle anything from 89-94 octane without pinging, just way less power at 89.

Reflash it stock ASAP and see if it fixes it, if not you have an actual problem. Pinging is bad.

is that something I can do? or do I need to bring it back to him ?
If you have the softloader used you should be able to do it, otherwise you have to bring it back. But I'd do it sooner rather than later or a new block will be in your future.
