Default 99 RS and up Knock sensors

I am curious as to the actual usage of the stock knock sensor. I beleive that there is a kncok sensor on the 99 and up RS'. But how well or how good is this knock sensor. Is it next to useless or is it as good as the wRX one (which i don't beleive it is).

all i know is that my knock sensor bolt came loose and i thought my car was gonna blow up.

it depends on what your definition of useless is? I think once you step on the gas and go to high throttle, the ECU stops using sensor readings to determine A/F.

I believe this is the reason why a JS safeguard comes in handy. Knock is not our friend.

what about advance I know at high revs the ECU stops listening to the knock detector but i didn't know that at high throttle or WOT it goes to ignore mode too...

Can you elaborate on your situation with the screw loose on the knock sensor? sounds scary...
