Default O2 Sensor Clamp-on Mount?

Looking for a semi-temporary way to install a WBO2 on an existing NA6 exhaust without the expense and hassle of having to get one welded, since the exhaust will end up being replaced anyway. This would be part of the "install standalone and WB, and learn to tune" step before installing a turbocharger.

Anyone used one of these things (or similar) before on their NA, and if so, how'd it work out?

what's wrong with pulling one of the OE sensors and placing the wb in it's place?

The above looks like fail and aidz

I thought the OE position (i.e. before the end of the OE manifold) was too close to the exhaust ports for good wideband sensor health/longevity. Not the case?

not even a little bit. OE sensors last there for hundreds of thousands of miles.

Agreed. When running naturally-aspirated, a wideband sensor of decent quality will be just fine in the OEM location. I think this is probably how most of us did it while in the phase you're in now.

Most (all?) turbo OEM's also have the 02 right off the header and those see 20-30psi EGBP, heat and abuse, for hundreds of thousands of miles.

only time I could see this being an issue is on a really hard driven race car

Excellent; I'll skip the fooling around with the clamp-on and just use the stock location. Thanks, gents.

Is there any significant difference to what a wideband sensor can withstand with regards to mounting position compared to a regular old narrowband one?
