Default 02 sim or 02 spacer

i bought me some pacesetter LT's and pacesetter 3in off road y-pipe, so no more cats. well i need some help deciding which route to go.

1. o2 spacer from bigdaddiesgarage.com that welds into the y pipe and pushes the sensor away from the exhaust flow.(has any one used these before?)

2. o2 simulator from o2sim.com that wires into the sensor.

anyone modded there o2 before hit me up with what you did. here pic of the parts

I am in the same boat as you my friend, I have some Pacesetter LTs and y-pipe about to be installed as well. I heard someone say at one point that the diablo can turn the O2 senser codes off?? Not sure. I'm waiting till they get installed and will mess around with my diablo before I decide if I need to invest into some O2 sims.

Looks like a really nice setup! I've never done it on a ram, but on my old s10, I used the spark plug non fouler trick and it worked. Go to autozone and buy two spark plug non foulers (or "anti foulers" or whatever), they are basically spacers for the spark plugs, but find ones with the same threads as your o2's. Drill one out and thread the o2 sensor into it, then thread that combo onto the other non fouler, then thread the whole 3 piece combo into the exhaust bung. I think others (maybe fast freddie) has done it on their ram.
