None, and nowhere.

Cams aren't variable, so no need for them. Crank angle sensor used for timing.

Alrighty, I'm confused now.

Can find documentation calling them cam sensors, but can't find them on the electrical diagrams. Maybe they're there, but not in use.

you would think the boss motor doesnt hav cam sensors as they dont have vct like the 3v but you never know wat great ideas ford comes up with.
i didnt even know or understand why they have a power steering pressure sensor?.. but hey mine fuked up and i had to replace it.

They do have cam sensors(CID) Cylinder I.D. One in the left hand head. They need a cam sensor to signal TDC on the firing stroke for the sequential injection of fuel.
