innovate lc-1 sensor position

Got a bit of a problem....
The boss in my exhaust is only 5/8 " tall
Innovate recommend 1"
So the tip of the probe will be properly in the gas flow rather than on the edge
Am likely to kill my new probe?

Bit of a pita to remove and put a new boss on





I'd love to give my imaginary friend a great big hug,

but this jacket makes it impossible.

I have burnt up a couple of sensors due to this, can you not pop a thick washer on it?.

I ended up making an extension which cured things with the sensor up close to the manifold, if it's 24" away from the head it may be okay.

My sensor boss is about 1/2 thick. Not burned up any sensors in 20K miles, 1 ft from the turbo.





Report your local potholes, it actually works!

There are Spark Plug "Extensions" that use the same threads.
Also there are dedicated O2 Sensor extenders.





Beware of what you wish.. for it may come true....

Does it matter if the sensor end is maybe 1/2" outside the exhaust diameter? I can make an adaptor
Guess it will slow response a bit?

I have the proper boss, just the wrong one on the exhaust
Welder is bust at the moment, and don't want to take the manifold off
