Default Best place to weld a bung for lc-1?

My lc-1 wideband is coming next week, does anyone have a suggestion as to where I should weld in the bung? I'm assuming the mid-pipe between manifold/cat, any more specific suggestions?

i like to do it right befor the cat, this way you can easily route the cable under the shift boot into the cabin.

right before cat, and make sure its on top of the exhaust, because if it is on the bottom condensation can build up and ruin the o2 sensor.

+1, you need to be far from the turbo(36" recommended by AEM) and you don't want to be after the cat.
