hey everyone i got a question. im thinking about picking up a set of the mazzuri headers and i was woundering, if i didnt get an o2 simulator would it affect the preformance of the car at all? ive read online that sometimes your car goes into a limp mode, now is that true?? also the second o2 sensors come after the cat right?? so what if i was to just zip tie it down somewhere where it could read clean air, would that work? thanks

which o2 sim??? the market one for hondas that should work on our cars ive seen it done on the evos they sell it as a o2 heat insulator all it does is pulls the sensor out of the exhaust flow and you can get them online for 10 dollars

you need the dual output one, make sure you get the one that matches your year car, and usually they go for around 40bux

yeah its not exactly the same one but yeah thats the same concept. people say you can actually get them at your local auto part store in the HELP section for couple of bucks, has something to do with spark plugs. anyways heres a link to see how they look in action and how they look at the auto store.

now that i think of it i actually have a set of the exact ones i posted, if anyone is interested? took it off my honda when i sold it. if you buy them at a local store your ganna have to bore one of them out and then re-thread it so the other one can screw into it. ive already done that with mine. saying that the mazzuri headers dont even come with a bunge i already went ahead and bought an electric o2 sim.

" i found it it is called a "spark plug defouler" you have to use the 2 that come in the pack and on the top one you have to drill or cut it out so the o2 sensor will fit through... not sure if this thing works but i paid $6 so not a huge loss if it doesnt
