No. Knock sensor picks up preignition ping and relays it to the EEC. Cam sensor picks up TDC of piston #1 and relays it to the EEC and the DIS/ICM.

No, they are completly different sensors. The knock sensor is on the passenger side of the block and the cam sensor is where the distibuter would have been.
