Texas speed headers

Going to buy 1 7/8 LT's, High flow cats and X-pipe. Have been wanting to order these headers for about a week now, the only thing I can't find too much research on is that it only comes with 2 front 02 bungs, no rear 02 bungs? Do other companies come with 2 front and 2 rear 02 bungs. Looking to order asap whenever I can find the answer to this. Why don't they have rear 02 bungs? Looking for tuners and header manufactures to chime in. Thanks

You need to do more research.

The rear O2 bungs are located in the aft of the cats.

Even if you bought the version without cats, the rear bungs will be on the header connection pipes that connect the headers to your factory cat-back.

You will need to buy o2 extensions, thats about it.

did not realize that they didn't come with rear O2 bungs. Either way, you will need/want to tune the car after headers and the rear O2's will be tuned out. So why have them there if they are just going to be tuned out.

I can see where his confusion comes from. On the side it only mentions the 2 O2 Bungs on the collector. Doesn't mention anything about O2's on the connection pipe. Hell they aren't even shown in the picture

Exactly, I don't see them on the connection pipe? So is there 2 on the collector and 2 on the connection pipe?

I have Dynatech headers and yes there is 1 on each collector and 1 on each connection pipe. I am pretty sure everyone does that.

I plan on getting the car tuned as soon as these are installed, just making sure what exactly I'm getting, because i don't see (4) I see (2) 02 bungs.

I don't know how your so positive about this, where did you get this information. Are you assuming they come with the rear 02 bungs? Because I'd like to see where you got it from so I can be certain, because they don't show it in the pictures....

it looks like they do NOT have O2 bungs on the connection pipe. From reading this post here

As has been said, just the fronts. Thing is, the rears are no longer used when you go with LT's, even if you have high flow cats. They are only there to tell the PCM how the cats are working. Your tuner will turn them off in the tune. Just ziptied them up and out of the way so they don't get hung on anything.

That's correct, a good high flow cat will trip a code either way so you might as well leave the o2 bung out. That's just two less sensors for you to worry about getting out of the factory stuff & installing. With the way people are having issues with the threads on the factory o2 sensors when removing from the factory pipes, I think less is more!

I convinced my cousin SStodo8 to wait and get the TSP's due to his budget and they arrived Monday and this Friday I will be installing them for him and I will be doing a little write up here to. I saw them and they look pretty damn good IMHO!
