what is the sensor sticking out the top of my prodrive down pipe. I bought the car 2 weeks ago with prodrive stage 3 in it and found this on there. I am thinking its the o2 sensor that goes into the up pipe and maybe the prodrive kit moves it to the down pipe.

It could be an EGT sensor but it's not in the best place for that, so my first guess is it's an O2 sensor for tuning.

it's the uppipe egt sensor- that's where the Prodrive downpipe relocates it- don't ask me why :)

the bung is too small for a O2 sensor unfortunately

the probe can't do any harm there, but it's not necessary

I believe it is because they check to make sure the egt sensor is installed in the UK for emissions check

I wonder if they (EDM) have a decatted uppipe (2.0) like the jdm cars and that is where there egt probe is??????

Got me to wondering (sorry off the subject) if I could put my egt probe there (instead of my uppipe) and remain STX legal- hmmmmm???

I think North america is the only place that they did the catted UP to meet emissions standards.

I'm guessing you have no probe in your uppipe now- and probably no provision for it. All you need to do is throw a resistor (you'll have to search for which one, but you can get them at radio shack for sure) in it and tape over the end of the connector- that's the way I'm currently running.
