4-1 header installed today...mod worked like a charm but..

**i had to extend all 4 wires a couple inches to make it reach the header hole**

...so if the sensor will be going in way back near the flex pipe...beware, you may need to do this...fairly simple but still needs consideration

it's probably confused by it's new found power. if not then maybe the circiut is too close to hot parts and melted. you may have to plumb this in further up the line away from the header. don't give up!

nice how-to man... i'm going to do this on friday. i've just been making believe my cel isn't really there cause i haven't bought a cheater yet... i'll save some money and not have to wait for shipping ....

ps. i have a 4-1 header and yeah it runs rich, i think you can fix that with a JRSC or a 50 shot

If you want to remove the whole sensor you could add a resistor to simulate the O2 heater. http://www.plxdevices.com/AppNotes/PLXApp004.pdf
