Wow what a project! For those misfortunate souls that need to replace their KS, I have bad news. You have to remove the intake to access them. With some difficulty, you will be able to get to the front one by removing some hoses and the sensor "hub", but it is not possible to get to the rear one with the intake on. I took pics that I will post soon.

I was right when I said I found the receptacle end of the KS. However my KS wasn't missing. In fact, the KS I eventually found looks brand new.... it just wasn't plugged in! I would have still had to pull the intake tho, due to the incredibly short lenght of the KS wire. Plugged it in, put everything back together, and the car runs great.

now on to BlueBee's FSU thread to try and figure out why my 3 week old battery goes dead every night.....
