Swapping an engine in a 1997 cobra with a later model (2003 I think) engine that doesn't have the holes in the block for the knock sensors. Is this going to be a major ploblem? Has anyone ever done this before?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,

all DOHC engines should have provisions in the block for "knock sensors"
if for some strange reason yours doesn't, not a big deal as they can be turned-off inna' tune or just dont let the engine detonate............

The holes are a different size would be the case. Thanks for the info. I may have what you would call a 1 of.

that is correct, starting in 1999 Ford changed the shape and style of the knock sensors....so on 1998 back the sensors themselves screwed into the block, think it was @14mm thread and on the 1999 up it's a bolt (maybe 6 or 8mm) that screws thru the knock sensor and then into the block..........
