I also looked into wiring up a LED for it. I tried to use my CEL but always get a configuration error. Never really went back to look at it.

But how will you know if its working if you never knock...

Knock sensors are just microphones, its all about filtering and magnifying the noise.

Good point. I suppose there's only one way to find out! For SCIENCE!

No, but seriously, the miata had some knock on lean tip in. I saved a lot of my logs/tunes so i could go back and use them for analysis. So i guess I'll load up that tune, and recreate the lean tip and see how they compare.

Figure that would be good for a light test.

Looks like this thing uses the same chip used by the MS3 and the Enhanced MS2.

Got it in today, pretty well made, and a lot smaller than what it looks like in the other pics. I forgot, but the usb wiring inside the box, there's a removable plate (think of a battery cover for a remote or something), that's right next to the dash pot for Hz.

So the next thing for me is to pick up a few things, one being a cigarette ligther plug, and a couple of knock sensor plugs and see how this all works.
