Default 96-98 Cobra Knock sensor Mod?

Is there anyway to put in a Knock sensor from a 96+ Cobra, wire it for power and wire in an L.E.D. as a warning?

If you are looking for something "budget" you might want to look at TurboXS Knocklite.

Yes and no, obviously if I had it while I was tuning it could be helpful but it would be a permanent dash mounted led. the XS cost $130 when a stock knock sensor cost $25 and wiring's free.

Does anyone know the voltage value for a KS?

Well, it seems it's more complicated than I thought, lol. I've found a couple really dated unclear how-to's.

Any help finding a good wright up would be really appreciated guys.!

Yeah, but that wiring goes into the eec. I'm looking to try and build a little unit that will just turn on and off an led.
