Yes sir, that's the one and it showed knock in the datalog even though it was not bolted to anything.

But that's odd it would still show knock, maybe an electrical connection?
Yea that's what my dad and I were thinking next. I'll do a continuity test next time I get a chance and confirm the wiring is good. It does run in a harness that goes in between the 1 and 2 intake runners where it could of chafed on the rough edges of '01 and up intake manifolds. As far as I can see though, it looks fine.

Thanks for the help so far guys.
