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.
