Any reported blown knock sensors with this mod installed? I'm thinking of biting the bullet and buying this for insurance.

On the contrary, i think this mod prevents such event ... i've yet to have any sensor issues with my car at all (knock on wooooood!!!)

just watch out and make sure there is no leakage. I had the fuel upgrade for about two yrs. and the line coming from the fuel filter to the engine came off while i was driving on the freeway. the fitting was still there just the hose came off. had to call my friend and we cut the hose down and used a clamp over the fitting and hose. just fyi for u guys.

very nice tutorial, very well explained.

It would be nice if you guys post some kind of intro on what these mods do. This would eliminate some confusion to many peeps.

just a thought
