Use hole saws. 5/8" hole saw for the O2 bung hole. Infinitely cheaper than a 5/8" drill bit too. Sounds strange, but works incredibly well. Cut SLOW and use some WD-40.

Never again will I use drill bits in stainless (for large holes, obviously).

I've actually made exhaust ports/holes in 1/2 inch stainless header flanges with one hole saw and a drill press turning as slow as it will go.

I recommend some spray cutting oil. Comes in an aerosol can and actually sticks to the metal so you're applying far less than standard cutting oil (or WD40). I picked it up at Harbor Freight or Northern tool. Look for it around the pipe threading tools.

Sure, if you want to stick a big Shore Motorsports sticker on the sides of your car.

Another great idea I didn't think about.
