Re: Knock Sensor

it must be an extra that most ppl would choose do without, and it is just bad luck if u get it.

Check out page 6 of the PDF at this link. I found it with a refined Google search.

It appeared to me from reading this that most engines would have them, but I do not understand them fully.

Re: Knock Sensor

Try emailing FPV, I imagine for such a straightforward question you would get an answer.

PS, I hope the answer would be yes!

Re: Knock Sensor

As far as I am aware the BOSS 290 and 260 does NOT have a knock sensor.
This was one of the questions I asked the guys who designed the drivetrain.
They said there might be one on the BA2 but were very noncommital.

If you would like to confirm whether you have one on your 290 it is really easy.
Fuel up with woolies petrol and listen, you will not have to listen very closely.
I have actually seen and heard the result of doing this.
Spectacular and NO it wasn't my car.

Re: Knock Sensor

They don't have knock sensors. Mustang Cobras have one in each bank of the block valley so it seems that Ford Oz have been cost cutting as there is provision for them but there not there. Does someone want to remove the inlet manifold to make sure.
