I tried using the same spacer on my OBX but the angle on the bung was too much and it wouldn’t fit:mad:. So i spaced it out a little more with a plug de-fouler to get enough clearance. Long story short still had a code because O2 sensor was too far from exhaust stream:mad:

Where is the happy medium between too close and too far so it doesn’t throw a code?

Yo buddy, I got the universal one which is first on the list from these guys. Check it out, plus the other types they sell...maybe it will fix your issue?

Cut it at the angle and grind it to re weld it at 45degre then it will clear the obx down pipe.
No chech eng light for a year with that setup

Not a bad idea, I've been living with the cel and when its time to get my sticker I just swap my stock DP in

This is what I was going to do, except that my car runs like **** when it runs open loop all the time.. I have to clear the code every other day

For me it was weird. I bought a spacer that was recommended here in the forums that had to be drilled out (I think a PepBoys part). Didn't work for me, CEL came back.
Finally bought a Blox racing spacer and didn't seem to work. So I was like WTF!?! CEL came back but then a week later I had to replace the battery in the car and went with an OEM battery. Then the CEL was gone!! Been on there since around April and even passed inspection.
