    On a 96 civic coupe with a 2000 ls swap, i got a check engine light on because there is two harnesses for the o2 sensor and the header i got only has one 02 sensor hole, i need to know what would be the easiest thing to do was weld a 02 sensor nut and drill a hole in the header or can you hardwire it in. any help would be appreciated.
