I've got a pair of ceramic coated hedman long tubes for my 5.7 '93 silverado. I want to hook up the o2 sensor to stay legal tho. I have a bung so it will screw in, but does anybody know a good way to cut a hole for it? I would think a torch would make too messy of a hole...

Hmm, so if I did that I guess I would have to get a new sensor huh? Or can you splice that wire from it? Thanks for the help.

I have seen some collectors that have the O2 bung already installed, I BELIEVE I had seen them at Summit or maybe Jegs. Then you simply weld up the rest of your pipes.

My Hookers had a bung welded on when I got them but there was not a hole in the tube yet. We used a dremel like tool to open it up.

My Hooker 2462 1hkr Competition series longtubes were the same way as yours. I didnt open up the bung. I added 2 sensors, 1 in each headpipe, just after the collectors. I have a vortec 350 so I have 2 precat O2 sensors.

I had to extend the hO2 sensor harness. extend the harness, not the O2 sensor lead.

peace

I think Ill just install the headers and do the sensor after the collectors. Thanks for all the help.
