This is just an update i know this thread is a little old but it helped me with my DRAAXS header. The only problem i had was with the 3rd O2 sensor, once on the lift i removed the 02 sensor and tried installing the foulers but with the foulers installed there was no room for the 02 sensor it was hitting on the side. So... i just installed one fouler on the 3rd 02 and followed the rest of the insructions. NO CEL light and passed state inspection thanks for the write up.

For us who need the two anti-foulers, you only do this on the 3rd o2 sensor right? You do not touch the 1st or the 2nd? Just want to make sure :)

Oh, so I'm going to need to drill two of those suckers and use 3 non-foulers total then?
OK, thanks for clearing that up.

hey anytime, but when you drill the foulers I suggest starting on the side that is going in to the header, pretty much the oppisite of the picture that way if you slip with th ebit you dont mess up any threads

Good idea, from the pictures I seen it seems that you open that sucker right up heh.
I'll be doing it at my Dad's, so I got a vice and a nice strong drill, should be OK.

It's tough to drill through them eh? BradWhite gave me some advice and told me to start with smaller bits and work my way up, do you think this would be easier?

yeah, I think I'll do that since the old man has a pretty high quality drill.

Edit: hmm after looking at Brad's F2 install, it seems the stock exhaust manifold only has 2 sensors. He's got an 08 and the 09 should be the same. He seems to not have the sensor close to the cat, so do I just leave the hole blank on the F2 header?

i am going to run into this problem... is there any specific position the 3rd bung needs to be welded to?? or just somewhere close to where the original's would be??
