Is the flex pipe right side up?? Lol. My mechanic was terrible. So bad, that i got a full refund for their labor and they didnt even dispute it. Mine was upside down, and mine was hitting the subframe too.
post a picture of the correct way please! I installed it myself so i will have to give mysel a good stern talking to if i installed it wrong!!!

you can run the upstream sensor in one of the runners but the computer overfuels and the car runs rich. It is better to run the air fuel sensor in the collector so you can get a reading from all the cylinders. Im impatient so i did not want to wait on shipping from ebay so i made a spacer with the non-foulers. I hope to see you guys at focusfest this year.
