Just drill out the bottom of 1 fouler so the O2 sensor can fit inside screw them together and then insert back into your exhaust pipe.
This works on 04 and earlier systems bit in 05 the Efi system changed and doing this will not only screw up your closed loop fueling but it won't get rid of the PO420. If you do this to the Front O2, it will really mess things up.
