OK, i've a question here....

why is it a 'better' option to tap into the block when you could wire in the knock sensor from the 3L??
I spliced and soldered in the newer style knock sensor, as i felt this was easier, cheaper, and likely even more reliable then reusing the old part. It seemed to have worked for me anyway.

Anyone have any insight on this?

Beats me. I also wired in the new one since it is just a two wire sensor.

This is Todd's preference (tapping the block) - I too just rewire the plug.

From what I've read, using the svt lim and uim allows you to bolt on everything from the svt lim on up, including fuel rail, throttlebody / bracket etc.

Which do you think?? Seeing as you're port matching to use the SVT LIM wouldn't it makes sense that EVERYTHING on the LIM is retained?

Just double checking. You know how it is the first time you do something. You want to try to have the least amount of hicups. It will be going down this fall hopefully. Thanks again.
