unlike the carbureted cars, (tuning of which is more of an art,) tweaking/tuning/repairing the FI system really is a science, and its NOT that hard to check EVERYTHING for proper function. PM me your email address and i can send two large portions of the FSM in pdf format to you, they cover vehicle specs, cooling, FI/Engine, and wiring. not the complete FSM but its two large chunks that float around here, i downloaded them from someones website. they are both about five megabytes i believe, so make sure i can email that large an attachment. (<10meg for both)

The connection to the sensor isn't sensitive as long as it just made well. By changing the connector on the end of the lead it won't hurt anything.
Since you have installed a new sensor and still have a problem it appears that the wire lead between the sensor and the ECU is open. I would check that for a problem. My info for a '88 model shows the knock sensor is tied to pin 36 of the ECU. The connection also goes through one of the two large harness connectors near the battery area. The problem may be there. By just disconnecting and reconnecting these connectors it may solve the trouble.
I wouldn't be frustrated by having the deluxe model. I think it is superior.
