While poking around my engine bay, I found that the wiring to this sensor was severed.  Problem is, I can't figure out what sensor it is.  Going to be fixing it soon, just need to run to the junkyard to grab a connector off another EA82T and splice it in. 


It's the sensor circled in red.  Behind intake, next to bell housing.  Knock sensor?

Thanks.  I was looking at a GL-10 at the local junkyard, which also had an EA82T, and it didn't seem to have this sensor.  Seems odd that different generations came with/without a knock sensor.
