where should I move it to? is it time to drill and weld?
I burned a hole in the collector and welded a nut in there. Works good.
Go heavy or Go home
would it make a difference if i moved the sensor to the right side? or would it not matter?
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...
I removed my quote so gay, vegetarian, minority, eco-nazis who love Jesus, nuke spotted owls, vote Gore and smoke medical marijuana won't be offend.
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.
