The only option you have it to wire in a knock sensor. Its one wire. Or convert to obd1.

Ok, so it'll pretty much just be like the vtec components and IACV. Just find a knock sensor from the vtec engine and wire it into the ecu.. I think my only problem that might come up with that is that I think the knock sensor mounts in the engine block and apparently my block didn't come with one, so i'll have to figure out where to mount it.

Keep it away from the head or it may pick up valve train noise and retard your ignition timing. This is bad for power.

If I use a stock p28 do I still need to use a knock sensor?
