    I have headers and wonder if I should get Cable Extensions for the front OE O2's or just make up the distance with soldered wire?

    With extensions, now 2 connector integrities required for good signal. Soldering is the BEST. ....but soldering is a RPITA....

    EDIT: OH GREAT: "Oxigen travels along the wire between the strands..." so DO NOT solder or... anything.

    I wonder if this is why aftermarket O2 do poorly on the Viper and that only OE should be used???​



    Now there is 1) Enlarging the holes in the actual sensor head and 2) Quick Fire??? I thought ONLY USE OEM???

    Hummm.... I was planning on selling my 63 Factory Paxton Supercharged R2 Super Lark....

    Ended up splicing a 36" extension the harness (yes, I cut the harness.)

    Solder is simply better than the best connector (at least that's what I'm telling myself.)
