Default Darn it... Just stripped the threads on the bolt that holds the knock sensor in.

It's Heli-Coil time I guess...

Bloody thing was in tight or corroded in. When I installed the new one with the torque wrench it just kept spinning.

Anybody know the thread size for the helicoil?

Should be M8x1.25mm.

In the meantime, there's another hole on top of the bellhousing. Put the KS there until you fix the other threads.....and I'd put the torque wrench away. I don't think it's critically necessary for that.

If you didn't rip out every last thread and make it perfectly smooth, I would personally just get some threadlock or some silicon and coat the bolt with it and screw it in there. Just keep an eye on it for the next week or two to see if it's holding. If it works loose, you'll know it because you'll throw a knock sensor CEL and the car will run like crap. It can't hurt anything...
