Default Knock sensor

Hey guys.. I have a question regarding a KnockLink knock sensor and if or how I can mount one to a 93 Legacy Turbo (ej22t). It's a bolt on one and not magnetic as I think some are. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hmmmm. I have a knock link and the unit is mounted with double sided tape above the rear view mirror. The actual sesnor is a Bosch unit and is indeed bolted to the block. There should be a spare bolt hole that is unused on the block somewhere. On the EJ207 it is on the rear driver side between the intake and the tranny. Look there.

Thanks for the help ebeck. Would you think the block designs are any different (ej207 and ej22t)? The sensor was originally in a WRX and I heard it was bolted to a hole that went from the IC to the TB or engine or something. I'll check for the bolt hole though.

Look for your factory knock sensor. You have an OEM that doesn't have a display but it sends info to the ecu. The Knock Link uses it's own sender so just find the OEM mounting unit usually under the IC in a WRX. Mount it to a bolt near that. Not sure on location of yours but just take a look.

Yeah there is a pic in that thread. Just scroll down a few pics. Note the hole in the display. That is where a 90db buzzer is wired in. I ignore it unles it beeps at me. Which is never now.

Thanks for all the help. Found the extra hole in the block and got it wired up through that. Works great now.
