Well your first problem is you are drilling into the head to add a knock sensor.

Dude you should have drilled it by hand, and in a spot directly above the oil pressure sensor. That is a pretty thick area of the block. Or you could have just said screw all that and bought a Zdyne ecu that doesnt look for a knock sensor. Personally I just tapped an existing hole in my block for the sensor when I did it. It doesnt really matter where you put it at on the block, so long as it's there.

i fixed it by adding a thread to the hole, then added a plug into it, and then on the other end of the plug added the knock, you guys think this is a good idea?
I'll draw pix for you guys.

sounds reasonable. I would make sure your filler plug is made out of something that isn't going to be prone to heat damage (ie plastic melting)

Yeah , so long as it works, then fuck it. I would however, try to use a plug made out of aluminum so that the metals would expand and contract at the same rate. Just make sure it doesn't leak. I would like some pics though :thumbsup:
