where is the sensor located at? does it retard timing when you are about to detonate? just trying to find out a little more about it.

It is located on the block just below #2 Cyl yes it picks up the Frequency caused by the deto and pulls timing global

It has to see deto before it can pull any timing ANY knock sensor even the J&S has to see deto before it can retard timing

Would a knock sensor keep me from Boosting? Like is it pulling so much timing that it feels like a rev limiter and not allow me to boost??

(I have Toms Stg1 that I just installed....same exact set up Mike 1 had - Im using his tune, the only thing different is my OEM Plugs, MSD Coil and Wires...)
