I second the curiosity, I don't remember seeing anything special being required, but any information would be very appreciated!

I believe I used my stock knock sensor. I'd have to check the wiring. I can't imagine that I'd have been okay with not having it hooked up!

so the more time i spend learning megasquirt and especially tunerstudio the more i like.

ve anaylize live is amazing, and i'll definetly be upgrading to a shadow dash and picking up a galaxy tab to make tuning a breeze as the temps fluctuate.

Never used it! When it starts making less power you're heading for knock were my tuners paraphrased words.

+1 don't bother with knock sensor. Its for extreme limit OEM tune. MS is not on par with that.

You can use all of your stock sensors but you need to add an IAT for the speed density calculations.
