Best way to lengthen Oxygen sensor wires (Moved From 94/95 Tech)

I installed longtubes and need to figure out the best way to lengthen the O2 sensor wires. I got the longest ones I could find at 12", but it's not enough. On the pass side, I could probably remove it from the harness and that would give me enough slack. The driver side is lacking several inches though. Is there enough slack that I can undo the loom, remove it, retape the loom and be good? I'd rather do it this way than cutting and splicing or adding in extenders.

Why not just use the extenders? When my long tubes went in we couldnt find enough slack in either side to reach.

My driver's side O2 sensor does reach without any help. It was the passenger side that did not. Do try to pull the wire from the rest of the harnessed wires and just make sure it doesn't rest against the exhaust pipes. I zip tied mine to the frame just outside the collector on that side, but it does reach.

dont cut and splice the wires..bad idea. odds are you will mess up the signal to the computer.
use the extenders. you might have to unwrap a bit from the loom.

I bought O2 sensor extenders from Brothers Performance for like $40. They were well worth it.

Go to Oreiley's and get you some 16"ers. This is what I got when my LT's went in. You are still going to have to pull some of the wire out of the loom like 94GTVert said. Then just zip tie it all togeather and put some new loom over it. If you can't get the longer O2's, e-mail me and I will get my people to call your people with the right part #'s.

Oreilley's only had 12"ers, so Iused that. It works on the passenger side, but is tight. The drivers I spliced some in. Maybe next year when I replace them I'll get the 16" ones.

Thanks.

You can just undo it from the harness, there's enough length there.
