Default Aftermarket Knock sensor locations on STI

Where are you putting Tuner pro, Knock Link bosch sensors on the STI.

I have my sensors placed.
UTEC-obviously uses stock sensor
Knock link-DS front intake runner grounding bolt
Tuner pro-DS rear intake runner ontop of intercooler bracket or Passenger side grounding bolt.

Any other good points as I have another sensor coming

This is the best place I could find as well. Hopefully you have a FMIC and can get to this easily

Forgot about this post

Have any of you actually looked where the stock sensor is on the STI. Buried.

The bolt you use for the aftermarket sensor on the WRX is taken up by a bracket on the STI. Are you just bolting the sensor over the top of the bracket?

I'll take some pics tonite

Some days I'm guilty of brain farts.

The bracket is holding the coolant line for the throttle body and all that was required was to put the sensor under the bracket. Boy that was hard

FWIW
No difference in knock 'hearing" between the above position and the grounding bolt on the DS intake manifold according to knock link. Just alittle more noise from the valves when using the tuner pro headset. I'm deaf anyway (so my wife keeps telling me) therefore I don't use the headset.
