Rarlyl8 Hooligan w/stock heatshield

Brian et all,

I am trying to get the car running again and have run into a issue with my new exhaust, the O2 sensor fouls against the heat shield. There is no way it will fit with the shield in place, do you guys normally just ditch the shield? I'd like to avoid cutting it up.

Running B&B headers with a K27/K29 hybrid hair dryer. Thanks for the help.

I have the hooligan with a k27hfs and while it is tight, the O2 sensor does fit. Ill see if I can either find or take some pics. I would not recommend removing that shield. I would be afraid it would melt the paint on your bumper without it.

Found a pic. This is looking up from the ground. You can see my license plate on the right to help you get oriented.

I think I had to pull the bumper out to get it installed and then when I put the bumper back, it barely fit.

I have no heat shield and the backside of my centre reflector and tail lights have melted a little.

Thanks for the pic Jeff, looks like your shield is a bent backwards a little bit and/or your sensor is a little shorter.

Maybe I will 'massage' it a bit.

Played more with it this weekend, there's zero chance it works with an unmodified (bent or otherwise with B&B headers) heat shield. Frustrating.

I ended up finding a turbine shield which will hopefully save my bumper paint.

I guess it's a little late, but there are 90 degree adapters. I have one or two that I got for my old truck that I never used.

I would put a plug in it and add a new bung lower. If yours is at 11 O'clock now, Say 7 O'clock. If the exhaust pipe won't be in conflict crossing back across.
No one will see it.

I ran into the same issue but had Brian relocate the 02 bung to direct it more towards the top.
