Knock Sensors

Does anyone know why, in their infinate wisdom, Ford deemed the 4.0 I6 worthy of a knock sensor but decided the Windsor and Boss can live without?
Curious as to why....

Re: Knock Sensors

Don't really know, but Ford Australia designed the six, while the Windsor and 5.4 motors originate from the USA.

But it's easy to add a knock sensor to the engine. They don't affect the engine mechanically, but do affect the tune.
