Couple of Sensors i cant figure out

I have a S4 TII motor using a LT10S to run it and i cant figure out what the Knock Sensor or the BAC hook up to as in which wire, so just want to know if they arent needed or where they should go.

Thanks

Knock sensor is important but a microtech is a very basic computer.
Their is not much more to it.

As for bac, Its important and very useful but microtech not designed to use it(unless you request when you purchase).

So what should i do about a knock sensor? do you yourself run one externally or is there an option to have the microtech interface it, do you run one or reccomend something..

What do you reccomend with the BAC valve? Leave it open all the time, block it off, send the unit back to microtech?

I have blocked the BAC and my car idles at just over 1000rpm with no worries.
Idles 800rpm cold no worries.
As long as you have good comp it will run fine without.

As for the knock sensor. I have an external system. Knock is very important to log especially when you run 30psi on pump fuel lol.
