    the two sensors belong in the first merge of the primaries before they run down into the collector. one goes in each of the secondaries on the rear of the exhaust manifold (before it goes down into the "b-pipe" that connects the manifold to the cat). i had a later manifold drilled and welded two sensor bungs into it, then plugged the old sensor bung with a bolt. the ecu on obd0 b16 motors is a finicky bitch if you try to wire up the o2's backwards. i imagine that having one that far downstream and the other in the right place is going to piss her off. but let us know how it goes if you do go that route.

    yeah, if you can. this is the header on my OBD0 b16, it's not the factory piece, but it's got the same layout. you can see one of them, and the other one you can see the wire going to it. this is how the ECU wants them to be. you can try it out however you want, but dont be surprised if you're disappointed with the results.

    yeah, mine is a 5zigen as well. mine had a shorter length than the USDM ones though. i had to add an inch and a quarter and clock the flange differently. luckily i met a guy with a tig welder just before i bought it.

    bkk, most of the "chipped" ecus are programed to run on a single added wire for vtec. they forgo knock sensor, vtec pressure switch, and secondary O2. that's always an option for anyone who wants to avoid a headache. but on the 91octane feline piss they sell around here, i'd take the headache anyday to have a knock sensor in there retarding timing when things go bad.
