Headers and O2 Sensor

I recently Purchased a set of headers for my Jeep, I dont think they have a hole for an O2 Sensor ( ihavent been home to see them yet), anyways, I have an 84 CJ7 with emisions crap and the stock carb. I was planning to do away with the stockexhaust and go to a dual setup. Anyways what I was wondering is can I scrap the O2 Sensor all together? Can I have a hole put into my header for an o2 sensor? Let me know what you all think my best plan of action is. Thanks

Re: Headers and O2 Sensor

If you scrap the O2 sensor, you will screw up the emissions contol setup, since it uses that to control mixture to the carb. that being said, I am unsure if you can just drill and mount an o2 sensor in the headers, or if the headers (even with the o2 sensor) are actually emissions legal. If you aren't concerned about keeping the emissions stuff functional, there are several ways to bypass it with excellent results (nutter bypass, TR upgrade).

Re: Headers and O2 Sensor

Yep, you can just drill hole in the header and weld a nut to it that the O2 sensor screw in to. I have seen the nuts for sell in the Summit catalog, should be able to find a nut somewhere that fits though.
Not sure where you'd put it on your header, I guess about where it was on the old manifold?
