    Put a spark plug anti fowler in the o2 bungs and put your sensor in that. It's just kinda like using a shim to move the sensor down out of the path of the exhaust.

    Yep, turn the codes off or get sims - hurry though, they're getting scarce.

    But you can find them on Ebay & sometimes in the For Sale forums.
    Search O2 sims or O2 simulators

    If you search around you maybe able to find the instructions for making your own simulators with items you can buy from Radio Shack. You will just need to find the resistance needed to trick the computer into thinking the O2 sensor is working within tolerance.

    That's not exactly how they work. They need to follow a certain oscillation to look like normally accepted waveforms. They also ALL go bad in time. Some last 2-4 years, some 6 months

    ive had good luck on my friends imports taking two antifowlers drilling them out with a 1/2" bit and screwing them into each other then the bung and putting the o2 in them. no lights in the 3 cars we have done it too so far.
