If by extend the O2 sensor you mean extend the wiring harness to reach the O2 sensor then it is possible to buy harness extensions depending on year etc...or you can extend the harness yourself by cutting the wires and splicing in pieces the correct length.

Making your own extension looks like your only option. I bought some a few years ago, but they're no longer available.

I've cut them to make longer before, simple. Just make sure you weatherproof the connections, they are low voltage and any corrosion there will later cause you issues. Need soldering to do it right.
they are also available on ebay i believe looked into them when i did the header swap but i just ended up extending the wires. No need to go buy anything except wire and crimp connectors. From my understanding you do not want to solder the connections due to the change in resistance/voltage which is what the car uses to adjust fueling. I mean you still have the same number of connections to do anyways even if you go to the junkyard to get the appropriate connectors

Does anyone know how long I need to make them after doing an svt header swap?

^You just need to pull the unmolested wiring out of the harness and run it to the back of the engine. Pretty easy to do really.
