running without a knock sensor? I cant get my knock sensor to give a reading to the ECU. Short of running another cable from the knock sensor to the ECU.... I want to disconnect the sensor. That being said... the knock sensor retards the timing when there is a short or open circuit... I read 5 degrees somewhere... can anyone varify this for me??? What I'm thinking is disconnecting the sensor and advancing the timing to compensate.... Whatchya think?
