    I cut after just on the O2 plug side so i can get new ones. Mr. Lous thanks for the input that explains my problem, i think im just going to go ahead and get a frost tune and get them tuned out instead of buying extensions.

    You can not tune out the front O2s - they are required to make sure the car runs with the proper air/fuel ratio. You can only tune out the rear O2s. You will need to replace the front ones.

    Frost will tell you this too.

    Your best bet is to get Bosch 13111 O2s. They are longer and will give you plenty of length to reach the new locations.

    They go for about $75-$85. The wire extensions go for about $30-$40.

    I agree with why, but there are some people that have problems with those O2's. Inactivity/not properly switching codes.

    Could that be a yr of the PCM problem? Meaning ex. 95'-98' LS1's have one type of PCM, 99'-00' have another, and the 01'-02's have another.



    Wonder if Frost knows why.

    Could be. I have seen it happen with a 2002 Z28. Heard about it with other years, but never seen it personally.

    The 13111's are a Corvette sensor. My question is, they're listed as a REAR O2 sensor for the Corvette, ya'll are saying they'll work fine as a replacement for the front O2's on our cars? Doing the header install in the near future and definitely want to just swap the sensors out and avoid any problems I may have.

    You can use them as replacements for your front O2's. I have them on mine, as do many others. No problems at all.

    Knight is correct. O2 sensors report the same information to the PCM. The PCM interpets the data differently based on its position (front or rear) and then the PCM makes adjustments accordingly. The only two important O2 sensors are the front. When you get LT's and a tune you end up tuning the rear ones out.

    Awesome info guys I appreciate it. Always like to find these things out BEFORE undertaking a project so as to avoid any problems as I am an old wrench turner but a complete newb when it comes to messing with the LS1.

    We all had to learn at some point. Best way is to ask questions.
