Some Pawn->Knight examples:

(1) rsbS1bsr/p1p2ppp/2k5/1p6/3Q4/8/PPP1PPPP/RSBK1BSR
SPG 6.5

It's rather trivial if the promoted Pawn moves,
for example:

(2) 1sbskb1r/p1Spqppp/4p3/8/8/8/1PPPPPPP/RSBQKBSR
SPG 5.5

(3) rsbqkb2/ppppsp2/4pS2/8/6p1/8/PPPPPP1P/RSBQKBSR
SPG 5.5

(4) rs1qkbr1/p2psppp/3Sp3/8/2p5/8/PP1PPPPP/RSBQKBSR
SPG 5.5

...or with a move of a promoted Bishop:

(5) ts1d1lkt/bbb1b1bb/4Lb2/7s/8/8/BBB1BBBB/TSLDKLST
SPG 5.5 (b)wPe2->c2
