confused BA Knock Sensors

Do the BA V8's have knock sensors (and hence advance the timing for more power when premium petrol is used)? Most interested in the 3 valve barra220.
Thanks

Re: BA Knock Sensors

No they don't. There is provision for them but Ford are tightass pricks and didn't bother to use them, although every 6 cylinder that comes off the production line does have one.
