I'm getting some knock in my logs and I figured I would replace the knock sensor eventually down the line among other things just to see if that helps, Amazon says this is a confirmed fit for a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST - just wanted to see if it looks good to you guys?

Those are about the only ones left we can use that are for a 2G. I'm still not 100% sold that the evo variant works with the 2g ecu knock circuitry.
Ultra-Power makes a KS32 as well for 1/3 the price... but I think I'd sooner still go Standard.

the 98-99 black box ecu is nearly identical to the Evo ecu and the 98-99 used the same knock sensor as the 95-97, so I don't see why it wouldn't. I've heard of several people using them with no issue.

Don't get me wrong, I'm close, but and it wouldn't be the first time Mitsubishi made two basically identical parts at the same time and just altered one slightly (like length of lead) and called it two different part numbers. Even the latest Evo knock sensor superscedes an earlier one, just not the 2G P/N, and those were produced at the same exact time.
I think it's more that without a controllable test which, to my knowledge, nobody has done, it's still supposing. You can't generate the same exact amounts and forms of knock at two different times whilst testing two different sensors, so we just go by "yeah, it picks up knock." The correct amount? That's up in the air.

So, I'm like, 98% there. Just not 100%. :)
 
KS32 - 2g sensor
KS28 - 1g sensor and no longer produced
