There was a thread a little while back about O2 sensors for the FC. I said that Oxygen sensor wholesale had the Bosch O2 Sensors and you did not need to splice the wiring for only $39.00. Well I ordered one and I thought I would show you the picture of what came. I have not installed it yet. That is this weekend's chore.

I don't see any reason not to save $15 and splice it youself. Thats what I have done in the past. Anyhow if you don't have the necessary equipment this would be a good route.

I agree but not having to splice it saves me more aggravation. I would pay the extra $15 for convenience for me.

I'd pay the $15 just to have a nice clean connection. I suppose you could get fancy and splice on the old plug, but ordering stuff is easy.

i got that same thing. in my case it wasnt worth it. it wasnt long enough to reach so i actually chopped the connecter off and had to extend the wire and reattached it to the connector

That wire is pretty long that comes on it and I know I will have enough length because on my car it does not have to travel far. The female connector is close to the sensor at least on my car.

Interesting...



About paying the extra $15, I'd say it's worth it. The wire used there has that coating that decreases electrical interference, it's kind of a bitch to mess with. Like was said though, you're only paying for convenience. Personal preference, of course.
