Just want to mention that the designed location of the KS is the only proper location for it. Any other location or bypass will not allow the KS to do its job properly. I know it might be a PITA for it to trip a code and reduce boost but its doing what its supposed to do and protect your motor from pre-ignition. Pre-ignition is bad for the motor and will eventually cause damage. I wouldn't relocate my KS on my N/A motor let alone my SC one. I'd rather buy a simple code reader and clear the KS code when it comes up instead of doing the bypass.

i agree, thats why i just replaced my bad one on mine, for anyone who wants to replace the ks, its not that tough. i did mine in about a day. i didnt spend that much for all the gaskets and ks. fellas just go and look at my how on replacing it. factory put it there for a reason.
