Hopefully this works, scroll down to the MB Performance downpipe & you should get some idea ..

I would be tempted to move it down the pipe further still.

Mine was roughly in that position, and I damaged my sensor. However, I use the Innovative Motorsports wideband kit which isn't exactly known to be the most reliable.

thnx for the response!

I m pretty shure that it is way to close to the turbo, the lenghts i heard where between 16 inches from turbo and up to almost 40 inches, so there s where my doubt is...
And does the sensor need to be angled so it points towards the ex gasses?

Does anyone have a pic of one working good on a cgb downpipe? (i m going to buy the AEM uego failsafe wideband and boostgauge  in one, looks nice!)

Have CGB started making downpipes with the threaded inserts?

I live just down the road and he did mention he was going to look into making the larger downpipes.

I have mine angled at about 45 degrees (not vertical nor horizontal, somewhere inbetween) with the lead pointing at the bulkhead.

Not that i know of, but i got a new one from them lying here to be fitted, and want to weld a bung first before wrapping and fitting... That's why i would like to know how to place the sensor...

Please can someone give me some accurate fitting instructions?
(Thnx already ash-lee for the good tips)

ive fitted mine under near the sub frame, most widebands say its best to install between 10 and 2 oclock on the pipe.make sure you calibrate it before you put it in the exhaust for the first time
