You may have to use different combos of different lengths but it will work.

The O2 sensors aren't looking for cooler or slowed down exaughst. What the pcm is basically doing is comparing the waveform of the upsteram sensor to the downstream sensor. It wantrs to see a big difference, sort of like this:

you can do this using a resistor in the sensor signal line, just know
that will take some trial to get the right value, as you are working with a generated voltage of less than 1 volt.
