Default 22RE header install

I have an extra header and need to replace most of the exhaust on my 89 yota P'up. How much of a hassle is the header install? Would it be worth the trouble on a beater that I may not keep much longer? How do they run with no O2 sensor? No provision on header. I could add one if needed. Truck sucks gas anyway.

without a O2 sensor they run like crap. I haven't ever had any problems getting bolts off the manifold, just make sure to use liberal amounts of penetrating fluid, (PB blaster or whatever) The only thing that will give your grief will be the two bolts on the cat, they will be a fun time, i'm sure. but if your have a torch, or cutting tool you can just cut them off.

I plan on replacing the whole exhaust but I am not going to spend the money on a new header, I may try to weld a bung on the header I have if I use it.

it'd be easier just to have a bung welded on to the exhaust after the header.

Putting a Bung in #2 or at merge collector are the best places.

Just remember, you can't cut and splice to extend the wires...

thats why my yota ran like a box of dog turds, when the P/O replaced the motor, he didn't make sure all the wiring was off the exhaust, so the O2 sensor plug melted together, then was cut and connected with butt connectors.
