The sensor is placed at the meeting point of all four pipes because it can get optimum readings. If the sensor is placed in the pipe of only 1 cyinder and that cylinder fails, accurate readings will not be fed to the sensor.

I would like to know the answer to this too. Does the PUC readings change drastically? I am running a 4x1 header with straight pipe. No center muffler or cat con. Havent got a PUC done since. Will my readings be in the borderline or in red?

P.S. I am guessing the automech headers are 4x2x1 correct?

I got my automech FFE from the same dealer he gets it installed from some other mechanic in nehruplace and he knows nothing much about FFE and K&N,prices for all other things are on higher side,he claimed 25% increase in my car after K&N and FFE job but i knew what to expect so i asked him to tell me what is asked.

Enjoy your ride mate. cheers.

its actually pretty low key with a deep ( bass ) coupled mettalic hiss as revs build up
