Slow3 is selling a set last I checked. He has the housing pictured here. Selling at a steal too.

Just out of curiosity, I am trying to resolve the issue of extending the second o2 sensor, good-win racing sells an "extension kit" but it appears the plug may differ slightly between the NC miata's second o2 sensor and mazda3's. I'm sure I could modify the plug to fit as it's the same basic design, but I was curious what others have done.

Here is the good-win racing link: HEADER INSTALLATION LONG extension cord for second O2 Sensor-.for use when installing any header using STOCK MIDPIPE. for MX5

Seems kind of expensive at $50 bucks for some wire and plugs...

Anyway, thoughts on extending the 2nd o2 sensor wires?

In other news, I'm flying out to California for the El Toro Pro this weekend, co driving Heinitz's car, should be a nice taste of what those rsx's are capable of!

I just used the wire provided with the Vibrant header. Cut, twisted, soldered, heat shrink, done. Cost .05 cents in solder and heat shrink tubing.

That should be fun, good luck Danny! I'm getting plenty of practice battling RSX's locally btw

I've been told soldering the wires prevents air from moving within the wires, which is needed for the o2 sensor to operate properly. As in it uses the air within the wires as normal and compares?

It honestly sounds odd to me but that's what I was told.

and yes Adam we need to knock these silly rsx's out of here. I'm going behind enemy lines and I'll share any intel I recover.

Why don't you just drill a hole and weld in a new bung? On my vibrant header the flex pipe I got off of eBay was absolute crap, I just drilled a hole welded the extended bung and boom problem solved. My first O2 sensor is in the header and my second is before the hi flow cat that I bought with my corksport exhaust. I've never had a check engine light because of it.

Ha ha

Your "odd" instinct is correct. Wires do not conduct air. When in doubt do a little technical reading. http://www.ngk.com.au/oxygen-sensors...en-sensor-work

End result is that NOT soldering wires is what will get you. Poor connections have a higher resistance, and will degrade over time. This will actually throw off the sensor's measurements more and more as time does its work.
