Just out of curiosity, if you have the f2 header, which has 3 o2 bungs, couldn't you do this trick for the 2nd o2 bung, then hook up an a/f gauge to the third one, and still be ok emissions wise?

installed my header with this fix and didn't get a cel for like 60 miles. went to the a ford dealer ship for a alignment, cel wasn't on went i got there but when i left the cel was on lol. should i pull the o2 sensors again and unplug my battery for 10 min or should i drill out the first anti fouler on the 3rd o2 sensor.

I ended up fixing my CEL by using a drill/undrilled anti fouler in the bottom and middle o2 sensors

I just installed mine and I placed the number 1 O2 sensor in the top bung, the number two O2 sensor with the mechanical fix in the second bung and plugged the third bung. Did that this past Sunday and still have no CEL and I've gone 125 miles on it already.
