Borla Exhaust Installation

Hi guys - question for those of you who have installed the Borla header back exhaust 12656 ... the O2 sensors have a sheet metal cup pictured in the installation PDF below

borla dot com /media/installations/12656.pdf
Page 4, Figure 5

With the factory exhaust, these cups were held firmly in place when the O2 sensor is tightened down. With the installation of my Borla, they don't sit flush and rattle around a lot. Did anyone else experience this? Anyone else have this issue - solutions or suggestions? (worst case i can mechanic's wire them into place)

Thanks

If the o2 sensors are not screwed in far enough those cups won't snug up. Just be careful to not strip out the threads

soak the bolts in some kind of lube, pb blaster or wd 40 a day in advance. use a breaker bar to break the bolts loose. i used diluted detergent for the rubber hangers. should be an easy install. just have a friend holding stuff so its not hangin and shat.
