    o2 extensions, or get something like the bosch13111's that have enough length to reach on there own. 2 things I like about my highflows is they cleaned up some of the smell and cleaned up my exhaust tone. I gained almost 2mpg's with headers and the other bolt-ons.
    Current hp is 338hp 355tq through an a4, 50hp gain over stock with all the bolt-ons

    Yah I bought mine a couple days before new years since I knew they would be. I'm sure if you say it's for off road use there isn't a lot they will say about it. Say they are for a 55 chevy

    Newtech, but I would look up threads on bay area tuners and see who you want to go with. Most places don't have the time to just dyno someone's car. You might try these guys though. They are new so they might and try and work with you a bit more than those already established.

    Yep, and you mean tps in Campbell correct? Search on tech about the different tuners, seems to be a heated topic in our region.

    I wouldn't bother with 02 ext's just het the longer Vette sensors which someone already posted the part# for. They'll be new so you won't have to sorry about them going out on you a month later. Also.and ext is just one extra issue to deal with.

    true that... gettin new o2s i dnt have to worry bout that on the future..
    so any ls1 vette o2 sensors will work?

    Paint will come off, the o2 sensors I listed are long enough out of the box you don't need extensions. If you want cheap get the ebay headers.

    Thanks bro.
    What eBay headers could be option ?
    Most of the cheap headers are stainless steal. But I have heard is not good idea to get stainless steal.
    And ceramic ones goes for almost 500

    Stainless are the expensive ones. They will outlast painted and ceramic. Look at the stickies in this section, they have the brands listed including the ebay ones. Haven't heard any bad reviews on the ebays.

    I have OBX headers, watch out for the steering shaft and header pipe. You may need to dent in the header pipe and run poly engine mounts. I had to on my camaro.

    If I were in Cali I prolly wouldn't delete my air pump/EGR. I use 02 exstensions and they work fine with my original 2001 02 sensors. No mods I've ever done increased my gas milaege. Bone stock it averaged 23mpgs, now gets about 16.
