are you doing the o2 sensor extension? I haven't done the install yet i'm planning on getting the alpha soon though
yea i plan on doing the 02 sensor extension. Until i get flash pro. FYI There's a special socket for the o2sensor removal that you can get at autozone. Its just these dam bolts on the head no leverage very tight place and a lack of tools on my end.If eveyrtging went according to plan i think its a very easy process. Where are you from?

oh, the extension isn't necessary if you have flashpro? I've just started looking into whats needed for this install.

yeah it looks like a bish to get back there esp if the bolts are all rusted and crap. the catback install was a pain just because of the bolts.

i'm actually from rockland, valley cottage, creepin in this thread :shadyhat:

Yea if you have flashpro you are all set and don't need to worry about the defouler, and yea I've done a lot of research and asked a few questions about the aplha header. I didn't even install my exhaust myself I tried to but the bolts where so rusted that the shop literally had to melt them off

This is what i used to extend the O2 sensor and its a perfect fit -

Its around $75 though so not worth it for some people and not easy to find. I have the Megapower Header and not the Alpha although the difference is just the materials used.

Plug and play looks nice. Where did you find it?

It's 100% necessary to extend?

I'm reading through the alpha chat now but it's over 100 pages and a lot of conflicting opinions haha

The secondary port near the collector no but the first port yes you need some kind of reading there. The secondary O2 sensor you can gut and cap off the port or just leave it in there its up to you. I highly recommend having a healthy O2 sensor in the first port.

This should be it at a very low price,I was one of the first to find the harness from Honda over 2 years ago and the prices where much higher.

Im using hasport engine mounts I’m using 62a for the driver and passenger mounts and 70a in the rear and let me tell you it’s a night and day difference from stock and plus I have 180k on my car. My engine mounts where going and there was a lot of movement from the engine and now there isn’t. The car feels more planted to the ground and it reduced wheel hop

Ive done a few Hasport full sets and the install is a pain in the ass lol but it gets easier each time.

LOL ive been out the game for a little over 2 years now but it feels good to be talking Car stuff again. I should be home later this year and cant wait to put the SI back on the road :vtec:
