There is no need to buy an O2 spacer. You can get a "non-fouler" and drill one out so the O2 fits inside.

This may sound like a dumb question, but I only know this because the mechanic who installed mine did it wrong...


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.

2" o2 spacer for sensor 2 and you will have zero issues ($5 on ebay). Also an extension is not required for F2 Headers.

Run it at the track yet? That sounds like a good bit of power, but how well is the car putting it down?

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.
