I've been staring at my new Rinehart 2-1. Should get off my butt and weld in some O2 sensor bungs so I can swap out my exhaust. So I guess I need to pick up a couple of new bungs....

Some time ago I remember reading something in a thread about bungs that place the sensors at a 10 deg angle to exhaust flow. There was even a link to someplace to get pre-angled bungs. I thought I'd bookmarked it, but apparently not.

Can anyone comment on the 10 degree thing? Is this supposed to give a more accurate reading or is it more of a 'turbonator' voodoo thing? Any reason to bother?

Second: about how much are a the sensors themselves? How often should I replace them?

BTW: I run the VRFI-D (and am quite happy with it!)

I can't comment on the 10 degree part, but just make sure you do them yourself and get them placed correct or you'll have 2 sets of bungs in your pipe.:soapbox:

Thanks - I did the first set myself... just did a lot of measuring and mocking up before I drilled

Yeah that's what I should have done. Figured I could trust a shop that is supposed to specialize in V Rods and said they have done them plenty of times before.

If you get rid of your old headers, I'll take them. I'm planning on going Twinscan II+ this spring, or maybe even Christmas.

Thanks - that would actually put you in line behind Kerri and some others... :) but I've decided to keep my stock headers/D&D slip-ons in case I need them down the road (compliance?)

Drilling/placing the sensor bungs is pretty simple - and you can have them welded in place at any muffler shop. Just make sure to chase the threads with a tap after welding.

It seems that after reading Jan-Dirk's article, he placement of the sensors may be a little more difficult. 10 to 2 o'clock. Even harley doesn't do that.
