Why the heck would you EVER want to delete the knock sensor? That's what allows your motor to make maximum power and not damage the motor with every cylinder firing...

If you want to make it less sensitive (still not recommended!!!), you can wrap the threads of the bolt that holds it to the block with a little teflon tape.

just because ur running premium fuel does not exempt ur motor from experiencing knock....it was designed as a safe guard to protect your motor...if u want to eliminate that...well...thats ur decision......take ur chances......

If the 3MZ has 2 knock sensors (which I thingk it does), some of your options include relocating it to a quieter area or rewire at the ecu to "virtually" eliminate the problematic sensor. Here how at SG

I agree with the advice above though. Make sure you've tuned the engine properly before even considering such a mod.
