What are the mainstream knock sensors if you dont like or want the knocksense?

(I need to start a new thread and need to do an initial post before it would let me, here it is..)

Yes you can do dual knock sensors, but it won't keep the signal seperated. It would combine them. For two different signals you would want two knocksenses.


The knocksense works great with the stock '99 sensor, not to noisy or anything, very happy with it.

What kind of set up do you have for knocksense? I've been trying to get MS2E to work with the stock sensor but so far it hasn't picked up anything. I think I had the threshold too far off, though. I have 2v as the normal sensor output and anything below 1.75v (was 1.5v until Sunday) as a knock. Retards after 2 detections.

My timing is too far advanced so with hot intake temps I should occasionally see some retard in the logs but w/ a 1.5v threshold I saw nothing.

Sweet. I'll add that to my list of things to include in my set-up.

Truthfully don't know anything about threshholds and whatnot. For MSI you have to use a particular circuit which comes prepackaged and tuned here http://www.viatrack.ca/ I bought that and wired it up. Then all you do is set the amount of ignition retard it sees on knock events. Outside of that I don't know what to tell you though. If there is something else I can help with let me know, i guess MSI isn't quite as refined.

That's funny. To get those numbers I set an O-scope on single capture and hit my engine block with a hammer. That didn't seem very refined.

I wish I had a scope so I could check some things out someday. Wonder if one of those USB ones would be work alright.
