A while back in NC I did a variant of the knock relocation on a B16 Spec that had some issues and was still running 'fine'. For those that don't know, the B16 Spec's had a sensitive knock sensor too at around the same sensitivity or worse though I don't remember. The guy told me it ran better and though I didn't get a chance to verify much I no clue what happened due to him moving.

All I did was mount the knock sensor backwards on its original location with a shouldered bolt or a washer. Below is an example.

There is enough room behind there to compensate for the harness, I had suggested this multiple times on Allsentra but I don't think there was any takers and I may have suggested it here but regardless here it is in all.
I will hopefully be running it like this soon when ever I get the new ATI damper, but if anyone else wants to try and see if its better than the relocation by all means as I believe it will be a better solution overall.

Dyno'd the car and had extremely consistent pulls with the knock sensor mounted in the reverse/backward mounting with only modifying the tune that was already on the car. With that, driving the car before and after the dyno, consistent response...this seems better that running a grounding wire and having the sensor hang or bundled some where.

Not sure about it working better, but more the same.

Overall intent is to remove the knock sensor's surface from the block itself and we are still using a bolt for grounding the signal. The plastic housing is also acting like a spacer.

I know it works, I just think it's a better/ simpler solution.
