Upstream O2 sensor

Guys, I miss the sixer forum. The Ecoboost crowd is nowhere near as active! Anyway, a friend of mine is throwing a bad upstream O2 sensor code. I offered to have a look to replace it. No longer having a 3.7, I'm wondering if there is clearance enough to pull the sensor out while avoiding having to drop the pipe below the shorty headers that are on the car in question. Glancing at my friend's car earlier, I could see it was accessible but I neglected to note if there was actually room to pull it. Comments and observations greatly appreciated.

I have a xpipe with no cats and there is enough clearance from the bottom

Plenty of room, just watch out for cross threaded sensors (both of mine on the right side were cross threaded at the factory, and needed a pipe wrench for removal).

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.
