I don't have an LS engine, but I've heard of the knock sensor and water problem. I've always wondered if removing the foam would be the answer. Sometimes when "seals" against water are used, it does more to trap the water that does get by, than to prevent water intrusion to begin with. So I'm thinking while removing the foam may allow water in, it may also allow it to dry quickly.
