    the a6 block does not have a knock sensor and i dont think it even has a place to install one. and unless you are running an obd2 ecu you don't need one.

    to see if your dizzy is right put your engine to TDC then the rotor should be pointing to the #1 sparkplug.
    and if your dizzy won't bolt up did you get the z6 dizzy?
    or maybe it is flipped 180 degrees?

    its a 42 u distributor, which is what i have read to be the right distibutor, and all the ears will bolt up, just not in the position that it needs to be for the car to run right it seems. and if you flip the distibutor gear 180 degrees it doesnt seem to fit into the head right so idk. any other suggestions to any other distibutor that i might need?

    did you try and move the dizzy cause maybe ur IGN. timing is off
    but you have the right dizzy and check to see if your sparkplug wires are in the right order
