The factory harness can be extended to fit the new headers' o2 sensor location by removing a tie-down on the upper bolt of the trans bellhousing.

I would take a canned tune from an experienced 5.0 tuner over a custom dyno tune from a local shop any day. The shop that dyno'd my car did not even know the 1:1 gear ratio. I am lucky to have some of the top shops with a few hour drive but not everyone can say that.
Might I ask why the extensions that came with the Kooks headers are not recommended?
