downpipe around 6" from the turbo. Also you can use the rear o2 location and disable the CEL.

I think there is a thread on this already...

I have mine at the bottom of my downpipe. After the turbo is a must, most people say at least a few inches away to keep the temperature reasonable, but not too far away or it will make it react slower (although at high RPM the exhaust is going pretty quickly). "Somewhere in the downpipe, but not less than 3-4 inches from the turbo" is probably sufficient.

I just had mine installed about 5" from the end of the downpipe. That is where I have heard to place it from tuners and manufactures of wideband equipment. Also new TurboXS downpipes come with a bung at the end of the DP now for Wideband. (Shown below)
