Ok I am doing a swap. The car had a D16y8 single cam vtec. I have a 95 B16a2 which was obd1. I have converted it to obd2a and I am using the wiring harness from the D16y8.

Problem is there is no knock sensor on the back of the B16 like there normally is. Is there a by pass wiring trick for this. I tried to search but couldn't see one. Or do I have to install a knock sensor for this swap to run right.
