Vibrant 1192 J-shaped O2 bung

Has anyone running headers considered or used this product as a method to pull the Post-cat O2 sensors further out of the stream to limit the chance of throwing a CEL

http://vibrantperformance.com/catalo...products_id=70



I like its design because it pulls the O2 sensor much further out of the exhaust stream. I've researched and a few VW and Honda/Acura guys have luck using these in keeping CEL's at bay. It looks much more effective then just using a couple spark plug anti-foulers.

I'm thinking about running headers, and plan on running some universal magnaflow cats at the start of section 1, but from reading just those cats alone may not keep the CEL away, that's where this would come in.

Thoughts?

You can give it a try. For $27, plus shipping, plus welding it in, you can buy an Innovate LC-1 that will fix it for sure.
