Default where to mount my wideband??

Hey guys... Ordered the Innovate Motorsports Wideband Gauge with LC-1 kit on Saturday... where is the best place to mount the O2 sensor? Getting all kinds of crazy responses over on turboforums... Just want your guys opinions so I can match them up and install it!! I'm taking the Fuel pressure gauge out of my window pod and mounting that were my radio is supposed to be and putting the Wideband there... I dont want to be looking up and down while trying to get a correct reading at well over 100 mph!! The kit wasnt priced too badly, picked it up through Summit for 209 with shipping!! I wasnt going to get one until after I took it to the dyno but I figured I need to learn how to mess with tuning this thing before I get it to the dyno!! I am going to try and get it close so I dont have to spend much time on the dyno!! Its going to be dynoed at 10 pounds right now, then currently run that for a few months then I will crank it up too 15 pounds plus!! Can't wait. This thing is an absolute monster!! Hope to get some responses before I get this gauge on Tuesday!! Thanks guys!!

1-3 inchs from the end of the collector so 1-3 inchs before the end of it

Thats what I was thinking also!! Everyone over on the other forum told me to send it back and get the dual setup with the 02 sensors on each side but I think I will be good... Shouldnt be that much difference with the single setup I think!!

You can also replace the OEM HEGO and use analog output #1 for the ECM narrow-band requirements..... BTSTDT.

reason it works best there is you are getting a mixture of all the exhaust ports in one area. if you mount it in 1 tube or to close to one tube in the collector your gonna get more data out of one cylinder instead of a whole bank.
