you will probably get leaner readings if you install your wideband after the cat. if you can find a place pre-cat I'd install it there.

yeah thats the plan, im prob just gonna go ahead and do it on the passenger side. Shouldnt be too much harder to get all the wiring in.

Came home to a fantastic package today.



The size of them really threw me off, im not sure if i was expecting something smaller or bigger, just not what was in the box lol.

Sunday morning is when ill be tackling this project, hopefully the wideband will be in by then to get it all done at once.

Not as much room as you "think"

You have to make sure the sensor is above the 3 o'clock - 9 o'clock position.
...dead center bottom = no good

9 o'clock = Good


Also keep in mind there is an o2 sensor on the backside of that pipe you may drill right into.
Remove that first if you feel this is still a good option and check the depth of the pickup so they wont hit each other

The Heat Shields are there for a reason,
Use Them to keep coolant hoses off the pipes.
Look closer at my pictures and you'll see (passenger side)

The key is to install the gaskets first with one or two top bolts
The top flanges on the headers are slotted for a reason

Gasket/Heat Shield on before header


Header in place, heat shield holding hose off pipe (bad angle photo makes it look like its touching...it's not)

heat shield and upper bolts noted.

Ill take a closer look at that o2 sensor when i have it all apart.

Install is happening friday afternoon now instead of sunday morning, doesnt look like im gonna be receiving the wideband by then so it'll have to wait. No rush anyways, gotta get more guages to fill the holes in that pod lol.

Thinking of a fuel pressure guage and.....?? still dont know yet - my intense need to beat my buddys 6.6L turbo duramax (tuned, full deletes and straight pipe) on the 5th of october has me looking at some nitrous kits, so maybe a nitrous pressure guage??
