    Replacement O2 Sensors?

    Its about time to replace my O2 sensors. What brand do you recommend? A lot of aftermarket wide bands are Bosch. Are they good for narrow band?

    I used a Bosch, and it was reading a bit low after about nine months, but I had a failed factory one at the same time. I replaced the Bosch with a Bosch, and the factory one with a Denso. Both worked perfectly after that. The Denso seemed to be built "better" but the "OEM fit" cable wasn't quite OEM fit, which is where the Bosch was good. Honestly, I doubt it matters, if it fails, it'll likely fail quickly (within warranty).

    The cable wasn't really long enough. It fit, but it was tighter than I would have liked by about an inch or so. The Denso also didn't come with the threads pre-anti seized, it had a little tube to cut open and slather on though, IIRC.
