2 things. I don't know about 2g sensors, but supposedly the Evo sensor range is vastly different in range compared to the 1g unit. The Evo ECU and 1g ECU is supposed to have different filtering ability in the board. Or so I've read.

Received an email regarding the mirage knock sensor availability. National backorder, eta 30-90 days. This was from

I changed mine about 10 years ago with a factory knock sensor, still okay....

The only thing I recall breaking down was the packing material/goo. This break down causes it to be too sensitive. I don't think the coil breaks ever (correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm wondering if it would be possible to just mimic the original filling and maybe just redo a used one. Just thinking out of the box, but the knock sensor is just a mic pickup. Just need to make a used one not as sensitive to avoid phantom knock.

I know, easier said than done, but surely it could be done.

I was thinking that some people have used EVO ecu's in their VR4. Did they switch to an evo knock sensor or use the VR4 OEM one? If the EVO ecu's work with the VR4 sensors it would seem like the reverse would be true if they mount the same way.

I use the evo ecu and had to use a evo knock sensor.

Some of the older Hyundai engines are copy cat designs of the 4g63. Those may still be available from Hyundai.

Who wants to be the ginuea pig and try them??

Just realized that you already know about the Hyundais.
