Re: Knock Sensor

I don't think they do have knock sensors. On the Mustang Cobra I think they are located underneath the lower manifold in the valley of the block, one on each bank, but I think Ford Oz was too tight ass to fit them. Does someone want to remove their inlet manifold to see if there are any knock sensors there.
I remember reading something in Motor magazine during the release of the GT that they tested the cars in the NT heat to not knock under full load without knock sensors and running on regular unleaded, not premium, to give them a big margin of error for knock.
