    Sup guys, sorry but this one may be hard, so I turned to you!!!

    My brother (Big Honda Fan) has a 2002 Celica GTS and as you may or may not know, the 02 model has a premature rev limiter.......He got a 2000 ecm to fix this and he has heard to replace knock sensor also. I know you VTEC boys will know the answer to this problem.

    People who have Toyota's don't seem to know much about them so I figured the honda guys would.

    By the way my 95 LS swap in my 95 DX coupe out runs him 1/8 mile

    9.35 @ 75MPH :D

    :p Do you have to replace the knock sensor along with the ECU????
    He has a premature rev limmiter and the new ECU to fix this problem may not control VVTL-i without a new knock to match the ECU.

    Regardless of whether you need to replace it (my guess would be no), remember that knock sensors are just specialized microphones. You can generally spoof the knock sensor using either a wirewound resisor or inductor of similar electrical characteristics to the one the ECU is expecting.
