yup, it'll work fine since the Y7s have a knock sensor too.

You will get codes, but you already have one on your y8 block, so just unscrew it and screw it into your y7 block

a d is a d no matter how you look at it and you do not need a knock sensor for v-tec.

isnt the knock sensor on the head and i think the knock is only neccesary for dual cam. motors.. a single will run vtec fine with the vtec wire and oil pressure or whatever that 2nd wire is. im pretty sure not the expert though. just but a d16z6 bottom end or zc vtec y test it doing a mini me. may create more power then the stock y8 does though.

If you see any obd2 y7's with knock sensors (don't know about obd2b), then the ecu is not looking for it, or even ocnnnected to it.
