Default got my whole exhaust system finally done

i put on:

ebay borla replicas
used stromung cat WITH rallitek o2 spacer
stromung non-resonated midpipe
magnaflow street series 14829


so far, its raspy once you get half-way to WOT, but im hoping it will smooth out a lot once it breaks in.

still one more thing to do. i needed to extend my rear o2 sensor wires, and i was told to use 16 gauge solid wire by a few people. i still get a cel after about 100 miles. ive done about 4 resets and it goes off everytime near 100 miles. so now i have my sensor off with the bung plugged, and i did further research and found that i need to use 18 gauge stranded wire instead, is that right???? i dont know if its the wires throwing the sensor reading off.

someone show me the light!!

Like i told you in another tread, solid wire does NOT belong on a car. And 16 or 18 gauge will not make a diffrence.

ya thats one size smaller in wire it wont make a difference. your sensor may not be spaced out far enough would be more likely

yea, solid wire does NOT belong on the car. Just extend the wire with the same gauge wire and be done with it. its super easy.

i still get a cel, but ive heard from good sources that it is because the cat is farther from the headers so the cat doesnt warm too well and throws off the sensor. one guy has the same problem and he says it doesnt happen when hes driving in the city, only highway. hes going to get a RT cat soon and see if it solves that problems.
