I am going to buy them all so that I can hook up 100 knock sensors to my engine.

You'll only need 50 boards for 100 knock sensors.

Ben, are you guys going to have any suggested starting points with setting like a diy basemap? I ask because I have no clue how to tune this item and i don't want to blow up my ---- in the process.

If you are running the NB knock sensor I will see if I can get y8s to post his settings screen for the knock sensor. He has been successfully running his for a few months.

I do not have a part number. I simply sent Steve at Panic Motorsports and email telling him I needed one and he gave me a price and then shipped it out. It is a stock NB part so I assume you could go to the dealership for one. I highly doubt DIY starts selling the NB knock sensors.

But it must be pretty cool to be you
With your brothers at your back protecting you
It must be pretty cool to know you belong
Isolated my whole life
Counting scars in the land of the smiling knives
Yes, Iím envious, itís true
But it must be cool to be you

I'm just finalizing my harness for the MS3/X.
To what pin and on which one of the two DB37s should I connect the stock '99 knock sensor, so it will work with this wonderful new piece of magic?

you'll wanna bring the stock NB (2F) into one of the four spare inputs, then you'll connect that to K1 on the module. The other senor pin should be grounded already, but i can comfirm this later.

just remember, you cant use the three LED circuits or IGN on the mainboard with the module in place.

Hah, I've been meaning to ask a question about these MSExtra Knock modules. Will they work in conjunction with an MS1? I've been meaning to get one for a while :P

RTC testing is complete. We're getting them packaged up, and should be on the site by the end of the week, possibly early next week latest.

Knock module testing is also complete. Same story, we need to get them packaged up. These will also be listed on the site very soon, though next week is more likely than this week.

We will have plenty of both items ready to go for the initial launch.
