Where there is place for only one sensor you'll need a tune to get rid of the cel and a smog station will know if they plug into your OBD II port.

Headerwrap is a bad idea.

Have a shop weld another bung into the header for you. That's what I asked Ricardo to do for the F2 header being that I have 3 sensors and the header only came with 2 bungs.

dude, just leave it. It's not worth pulling the header off IMO.

you might end up damaging the sensor trying to get it out as well, costing you more time and $$$

says who?

tons of SVT guys wrap their precious cosworth tuned header. including me. it is simply the BEST way to keep underhood temps down.

you have no factual proof that anything is better?

oh itll rust? if youre driving consistently through 2 feet of water the life of your car maybe. but the d-tec header is on the back of the car...and there is hardly any chance of water soaking...which would burn off anyway.

dude do your homework. you have no clue what youre saying. you prolly think that jet hot dissapates heat better....newbs.
