O2 sensor exhaust block off plugs

Postby bic_bicknell » Sat Aug 21, 2010 11:52 am

I seem to remember a thread where someone put a link to a site where you can get the screw in thingymibobs to blank off the threaded holes left in the header pipes if you remove the O2 sensors.

I think they were generic car ones maybe.

Got a new exhaust system coming and may as well remove the sensors as I've disconnected the whole electrical system anyway.

Anyone know what bits I need or where to get them from?

You have to grind out the weird blockages in the bungs that stop you screwing in the plugs. I didn't want to take off the exhausts to do that so I used a stack of washers.

There is a link on here how to open up the hole a bit so you can use of the shelf cheap plugs. Use a hole saw and a spanner. 5 min job. no need to take the exhaust off.

Yea a dremel will also work but the back one is at a weird angle, I would like some of those plugs in aluminium.
