    You will want a constant power source (like power to your dash clock would work). The best location for the sensor goes on the downpipe after the turbo, but before the cat (in your case you don't have a cat on the downpipe, so as far down the downpipe as the wiring will reach, but before the midpipe). The invidia should have a pre-welded bung for the 02 sensor already.

    On the GD cars, the clock pod has the easiest wiring to access. In general, though, I recommend the power outlet wiring, as that can handle higher loads than other dash wiring.

    Tap the bung in the bellmouth, if possible. My Cobb downpipe had a convenient pre-tapped bung right on top.

    This invidia pipe doesnt come with 2 taps. So should i tap into the wiring of the 12v power or fuse?

    Take car to an exhaust shop. Have them weld a bung on (test fit it first so you know where to have them doit). You don't want constant power for the AEM. Just a switched power source and a ground. Buy one fuse tap so you don't have to splice any wires.

    Its the invidia downpipe with only 1 o2 bung which is occupied by my regular o2 sensor.

    Gotcha. Yup, anywhere down stream of the turbo will work, but they put the sensor (invidia I mean) puts it on the bellmouth like in that picture. I personally have mine far enough down to be out of the engine bay. The closer to the turbo, the more heat, the shorter the life of the sensor.

    Fuse tap and AEM recommends plugging into the ignition or something with a decent amount of power.

    You have to ADD another bung aside from the stock o2 bung on that downpipe.

    Look at the back of your fuse panel. I think I used the windows for switched power on mine and its running the Defi boost gauge and my AEM

    I plan on getting the AEM UEGO and having the bung welded into the OEM downpipe on my 2014. Is it okay to remove the heatshield and then leave it off? Is it easy to remove the heatshield and leave the pipe on the car?

    I didn't care about making mine look pretty as I knew I would be replacing my stock downpipe eventually (which I did), so I just took my DP off and cut a small square out of the downpipe heatshield and then welded a bung into the pipe as pictured. You will want to take the DP off the car as it will be much easier to work on.
