Welcome here, have you considered importing a car? Or purchasing a car from an importer in Canada?

To my knowledge(limited at best), knock sensors are a series piezocrystals and springs and stuff that are tuned to "listen" to certain frequencies. Those frequencies are your knock events. As the engine vibrates the piezo creates voltage which tells the ECU that there is knock, and to pull timing. The threads in the block are typically just to hold it and should have no effect on how it operates within a few lb/ft's of torque spec. Only a loose one would possibly cause issues.

Again, to my knowledge

What I read said that if its too tight it could set off false knock events and pull timing, but the error code I'm getting sounds more like the sensor wasn't communicating with the ecu at all, so well find out tonight after I bleed the coolant system and test drive it.

Small update, replaced the knock sensor, had to take out the darn intake to do it, but its done. Found two different torque specs for it, 29ft/lbs, and 33ft/lbs. I torqued it to 33, then after i finished i found another page saying 29, so now I'm worried that its too tight and might be why I was having issues before with the old sensor. best case its works, intermediate would be I just need to loosen it, worst case would be I damaged the sensor and need another.

I also tried to install a Hondata intake spacer/gasket that supposed to help keep the intake cooler by separating the metal surfaces, it didn't fit though, and I couldn't bolt the intake back on with it in place. Kinda unhappy about that but whatever. I'll complain to hondata and see what happens..

Colby, here's another picture, got to get on one of these free photo sharing sites so I can upload more than one picture at once...
Flickr works well, but you can also upload more than one attachment by clicking "more attachments"

If ones bad the other three probably are not far from the same fate. If the price is right and new struts are not too expensive then go for it, or try to find somewhere to rebuild them.

Not much to update here, took the car out to Kenora a few days prior to Driven, had a blast and hit a few hundred bugs. Pics incoming from that.

I lit up the subwoofer with some LED's for some added pop, I think it turned out really cool!

Took home an award for Best in Class Forester, kind of a gimmicky award but I'll take it!

Other Driven prep things, actually maxed my coils short of removing collars. Kinda disappointed, thought they'd be lower...

After a couple years I finally got around to properly installing my bass knob. I actually find its not as easy to use where it is now because I have to reach for it, but its not bad, and look 10x better than having it stuck to the side of my console!

Quick bug removal and wax job and she was ready for Driven.

Finally got around to lighting up the amplifier and covering it with plexy. I will be redoing the lights though because I'm not satisfied with how they turned out, it will either be simply relocating them or I might try to do something layered with some edge lit plexy.

Anyway, heres some pics of the progress.

Wondering if anyone got a picture of the trunk set up while at driven? I didnt take the plexi cover off until I got to Driven.
