so i guess i should check to see if any of my wires are messed up, then replace the sensor. does anyone know if the denso sensor is as good as the ngk sensor? the denso primary o2 is $175 and the ngk primary is $300. is there any reason to go with the ngk?

if your calibration is in good shape, you can run without a primary o2 sensor for a lil while.

no sensor means it goes off whatever is in your calibration. if you know how to tune, then you'll be fine for a short while.

Aside from telling you to search

thanks but i had already found the sensor, i wanted to know if there was a reason to spend more money on the ngk over the denso

both are oem....get the denso
