Yes it does you need it in the proper location. In other places the engines normal internal nosie can trip the sensor and rob you of power.

It is oem or after market system. You may be able to find some cars that had them in different place maybe check where there at on then vette with the headers they have.

You can change the sensor type sometimes and be ok look and see if a low profile sensor is available or different headers. Some times you can modify the sensor or headers to work with it. If you only need a little room to make it fit. Smack the header with a hammer and put a dent in it so it can fit. Certianly not a perfect solution.
