    I burned a hole in the collector and welded a nut in there. Works good.

    My headers came with a place for the o2 sensor... I have Edelbrock TES ones... if you are looking for header then look for CA legal ones... if you have a set you are looking to make legal you can drill a hole and thread it so it'll fit... or you can drill a hole and work up a way to hold it in there... My advice since you live in CA and play the smog game... take it to a shop and have them do it for you to insure it's in there right and you'll be legal. Otherwise it's a nightmare to smog and pass if the o2 sensor is wrong... because it has to be at a certain distance and all kinds of good stuff which might cause you to go nuts putting it in...

    Jegs, Summit, and pretty much every other self respecting parts house will carry a weld on kit for O2 sensor placement. Most manufacturers will carry an application for vehicles equipped with computer stuff. Again its probably not as a generic fit SB or BB block hugger header. I dont think it makes a difference what side its welded onto. I think it was put there because of space.

    For some reason it's supposed to be on the left side.

    I feel sorry for you California residents. I hate cats so much that if I had to have one on my truck I'd sell it tomorrow, or swap the cab to an older, non smog truck.

    Summit also has reducers available with a fitting already installed.

    I just had the muffler shop weld the fitting to the collector and then screwed the sensor right in.
