if its a series 1 au engine the knock sensor stud can be removed and the ef sensor will screw into the block..
otherwise you can use the au sensor and cut and join the plugs..

3rd option is dont worie about the knock sensor it will still run fine without it..
just might ping if s**t fuel is used...
