Default Did you need o2 extenders for your O/R mid-pipe install?

How many of you needed o2 extenders for your mid-pipe install? Please vote and list the year of your car, what exhaust manifold you have, what brand/style mid-pipe and which side needed the extension. Also please comment on what you did with your rear sensors if possible. Thanks guys.

I didnt, with my Summit O/R H. I do have stock manifolds though, I think you only need them if you have LTs

No. I installed a generic o/r x pipe from Brothers Performance (was told that BBK makes their midpipes, and minus the logo being stamped into the crossover it looks identical to a BBK pipe). Still running stock manifolds. The 02's went right in, and I turned the rears off with my tuner.

My original setup with stock manifolds and a upr offroad x did NOT need the extensions. MY BBK LT, bbk shorty offroad x pipe DID need them. Car equipped with 97 4v. Rear o2s where shutoff with my tuner, regardless of exhaust setup you shouldn't need extensions for the rear sensors.

I used the Summit Racing version. While I didn't need the extensions, it did move them several inches.

Yes i did need them before i put my longtubes on with my catted xpipe on the stock manifolds, but i also learned that on the 04's extensions are required for pretty much any aftermarket midpipe. Now with the tubes and the shorty catted x i still use them and i am glad that i had already purchased them.

Great exactly what I didnt want to see about half of you did need them haha. Now I gotta take a gamble......should I buy the 40 dollar cables and risk just having some fancy extensions laying around or risk having my harness come up short and having to wire(dread....I do it all day at work). Blahhhhhhhh.

I forgot about aftermarket mid-pipes moving the sensor location, I believe thats a mandatory tune update needed on an FI setup.
