What is the difference b/w the S4 and S5 rotor housing, visual and performance wise? Also what is the diff b/w the S4 and S5 rotors, does it weight more, and also performance wise? I just want to be able to tell whats the differences because i looked in the manual and it shows the weight and dimensions but does not say anything about how to tell if you have an S4 or an S5 rotor and rotor housings...... Thanks

as far as i know the series 5 rotor housings have knock sensors on the rotor housings there should be a small which is located just above the top spark plug hole on each housing.
as for the rotors the series 4 ones are heavier meaning they have lower compression and are the go for turbos engines.
lighter ones are prefered for NA being lighter and make the engine rev more freely and easier.
