    I need to put my O2 sensor into my newly installed shorty headers. What is my best (easiest) plan for doing this? Where can I get a bung for the O2 sensor so I can weld it onto the header? Or maybe there is an easier method?

    they sell them in Summit and Jegs catalogs, i'm sure you'll find it pretty easy in their online catalog.

    Go to www.jegs.com. They sell 02 sensor bungs for under $10.00. Just cut a hole and weld in the new bung. If you dont know how to weld, it cost me like $10 to have a shop nearby to weld mine for me, Granted, now I need a $80.00 3-wire 02 sensor....but thats not the bung's fault....thats my fault for running open headers....

    I took my O2 sensor to the hardware store and found a nut that had the same thread as the sensor. Paid 59 cents for it. I had to cut it in half with a bandsaw to make it thinner. Otherwise the sensor would not have been far enough into the exhaust stream. It ain't pretty, but it was cheap! :cool1:

    I used one of the Spark Plug Fouler things they sell in the Motormite brand at most of the auto parts stores. Just cut off the top section and use it for the bung. I got my three wire NTK sensor new off ebay for about 20. It is a universal, so you have to splice in the wires, but it was a lot cheaper than what the auto parts stores wanted.
