    Do I need a special tool to remove the o2 sensor ? i'm switching header and exhaust with a buddy and i want to know if I need a special tool or how do you take it out ?

    Also, do I have to jack up the car a whole lot to get the header off ? you unbolt it and drop it out the bottom correct ? will the standard jack that comes with the car lift it high enuf ?

    I use a pipe wrench for the o2. If you have a two piece header it is easy with the car down, but a one piece will be tricky, you should be able to, once you get it unbolted, pull it off to clear the studs, and then turn it sideways and lower it out the bottom, if your car is up on jackstands.

    I have an O2 sensor socket! Its like a regular socket but one side has a cut out so that the wire wont be messed up.

    I have an o2 socket, but it is closed so you can't fit the plug through, it is retarded.
