I wouldnt think you should still be seeing the KS making changes with the KS unplugged but the KS is proving to be interesting , I am doing a ZX2 that we have not been able to log the KS at all and he plugged in the cam sensor and now the KS is logging changes

You can use used buckets with new cams or used cams you will be fine

Interesting topic for me (it was my motor that had the KS issue mentioned above)

To be specific it's a cougar (zx3 style zetec) with a focus zetec swapped in; which is why the Cam sensor wasn't plugged in to start with (it's on the opposite cam).... no idea why it acted this way.

I hope you figure out your issues It mostly just takes time (I'm not done yet either)

No I never did find out the problem. I've re-clearanced my buckets back into spec on the tighter side, nothing. Replaced KS, nothing. Undid the serpentine belt and knock still showed so that elminated all the accessories. Since then, I've done a MTX swap and nothing changed eliminating the ATX. Ran 91oct with stock tune and also a mix of 4 gallons 91 oct with 5 gallons 100 oct, once again nothing changed. Checked the timing belt idler and tensioner when I had to pull the cams to clearance the buckets, it all felt/sounded fine. Really have no idea why it was doing that. I'm hoping to finish my built motor by summer so we'll see if it shows knock on a whole new motor.

After trying all that, Tom just turned down the KS sensitivity in the tune, now I only show knock very rarely but 99.5% of the time, it shows flat line.
