I'm assuming it is, i've had it hooked up that way for almost a year now, however, I didnt get that proper sized pulley to make good boost until late fall where it was cooler.

With the impending approach of summer I just want to be sure, since I will be tweaking the fuel/timing tables a bit more with the eec tuner.

thanks,
DMX

The knock sensor is on the passenger side of the block near the motor mount.

It goes into a water jacket. Your pic is of the temp sensor for the dash gauge.

Its threaded into the block itself??

The KS from my old Taurus before all this was threaded into the lower intake.

Just curious, but those pics look like that engine is in a front wheel drive car. Taurus possibly?

That's the coolant temp sensor for the gauge. There is an air charge sensor in one of the runners for the NA manifold I haven't seen a knock sensor in the NA manifold b4.

Yeah thats in a Taurus, the pics are a little old, I now have a Buick GN IC hooked up. I came here for help on some of the vacuum tubing many months ago and found a lot of good info.

Jeff, once again, you are right. Its been so long since I've pulled out my old NA lower manifold that I forgot.

I looked at what I thought was the knock sensor, and sure enough its right in a coolant passage.

Thanks again. :)

The one at the bottom right is the air temp sensor. The one at the middle left is the EEC coolant temp sensor and the hole in the thermostat housing should be for the gauge temp sensor.
