    Pat - You might want to mount the body to mount your dash for the go karting. It’s much different than trying to eyeball it.

    Is there another location other than the collector that you would recommend?

    With your headers, I think the collector in the side pipe will give you the best results. My headers have a double collector in them with a bung for the O2 sensor.

    There are 10 types of people in this world;
    those who understand binary and those who don't.

    When I have done cars with oxygen sensors I have either put them in a header tube or in the collector like this:



    No, they aren't above horizontal. No, they don't conflict with the body. No, it has never caused a problem.

    FYI; the reason that they recommend above horizontal is so that they are above any water that collects in the exhaust for longevity, not functionality.
