ORP Install
 
So I purchased a used CFM ORP from a member on here about a month ago and finally installed it last night. Besides being a PITA I like it sounds good. I just have one question, why the hell is the location for the front o2 sensor on the pass side??? I had to take off the one clip holding the harness to the fan for it to just plug in and now the wires for the o2 are very close to the pipe. I can't help but think that it would be a little better of a design to have it on the other side. Anyone else notice this or am I the only crazy one?

Noticed it, its better than the stock location...

I would wrap the pipe in header wrap and have heat sleeving on the O2 sensor if you can manage.

X2. I wrapped my orp. I didn't want all that heat that close to my oil pan.

Yeah I gotta do something about the wires. I'm pretty sure the stock location would've been better than where it is. This way the o2 and wiring could of stayed where it was designed to be.
