Default TEC-II Kit: Pardon my ignorance, but what the heck...

that came with the tec-ii I bought? Did not come with a description and I certainly don't see it described in the installation instructions:

Thanks,
Kevin

That looks like a knock sensor.

Yeah, that's a knock sensor, threaded into the adapter. The adapter threads into the driver's side engine mount - you take out one of the bolts and replace it with the adapter.

That brass adapter replaces one of the engine mount bolts. You can go with either side engine mount.

Default on another note...

why did two crank trigger sensors come with the tec-ii? Maybe I'm not looking at the install photos or not reading carefully, but I only see one being used.

The sensor (crank) i'm refferring to is the ones behind the knock sensor in the picture.

The crank trigger sensor is the only single point of failure in the system, so Shiv recommends having a spare around in case the installed one fails. I asked for a spare one when I ordered my kit. Maybe now he's including an extra by default.

Running the TecII kit is a real DIY.. About half the job is already done thanks to the custom machined pieces.. But the rest is gonna be all you.. Do the whole thing in stages

Mount ECU/Coil to firewall (stage 1)
Install coolant temp gauge (2)
Install Crank Wheel and Sensor (3 prep lots of time and watch those washers!)
Install Knock Sensor and MAT sensor (4)
Install MAP Sensor move around a bunch of vac hoses (5)
Splice the needed stock sensor wires, install comm wire (6)
Plug power into the TEC, see if you can make a scratch map for your stock injectors if still NA And install the O2 sensor.. (7)
Install fuel system (8 This could take a few days and lots of trips to the store)

If you were closer to Illinois, I could help you...
NA should look something like this..



More reference PICS.

Default Woah that engine bay looks nice...

Thank you Revision for the picture and input...I currently own the Vishnu Fuel Rails and thanks to you I know what fittings to get for those.

The TEC-II kit I got came with all the sensors and connectors that I can see from the installation. How do I know if I have a 1/2/3 bar boost controller?

I looked at the Vishnu forums and it does help me to an extent.
