sensors at back of head

Hey,

getting ready to reinstall my engine in the Cobra,..but there are two small one wire sensors (one on each head at the back) bolted to the rear of each head. The driver side connector is broken and allows the wire to push through the connector.
What are these things?

I'd rather replace it while it's out before installing the engine.

Cam sensor would have 2 or 3 wire depending if hall effect or something else i cant remember the name for. A one wire would usually be probably a temp sensor or probably in your case knock sensors if i remember correctly. Im sure someone will bring light to this ill be verifying wat they are now as well

They're not cam sensors, I know that much.

This is what I'm talking about:

they are capacitors for the ignition, ignition transformer capacitor is their names from my research on all data. they affect obviously ignition, i.e. coil pack signal.

Cam sensors are in the front by the power steering pump and heads

They are air-gap capacitors that filter high frequency "noise" generated by the COPs primary circuit from the car's electrical system--preventing that noise from interfering with the PCM, cluster microcontroller, audio system, etc...
