The LC-1 kit includes the weld-in bung, so you just need to have a shop make a hole in the pipe (the guy I went to just used his torch), and then weld the bung into the top of the pipe.

You can install the bung and plug it with a bolt if you aren't ready to complete the installation. You should not leave the sensor installed in the pipe unless it is powered when the engine is running.

The LC-1 also includes instructions for a portable AFR meter installation. You put the sensor into a section of pipe, stick the pipe into into the existing tailpipe, and then wire or clip it in place. You can power the LC-1 off the cigarette lighter, or even with a small spare battery.

Thanks Bruce~! This old dog learned quite a bit today on the installation and the "DO's" and "Don'ts" of what works...I just got off of Summit's site and found the collector reducer w/O2 bung for my header exhaust system...Summit gave me Summit money to use in April, so the total for the reducer will be $1.95 + 4.95 shipping, but since I am ordering other parts, perhaps I can save on shipping.
Thanks Again Bruce~!
