          I never changed a set on the stock manifold but Im running a pair of bosch sensors on my car now without problems. Even with the mustang exhaust setup they are still a bitch to get to.

            I think the OEM ones are actually Bosch. Most of them are.

              Anyone know if I want the ones with the long or short wiring harness?

                Go with the long harness, just to be on the safe side. It's easier to tuck away extra wire than stretch non-stretchable wire.

                How much are ya'll paying for yours? I think it's about time for new ones myself.

                    Bosch sucks?

                    Found this at domesticmuscle.com in a chrysler forum "Don't use a Bosch O2 sensor; they fail early and often. Pick an NTK, Mopar, ACDelco or Standard-BlueStreak." and this "Others have posted problems with Bosch oxygen sensors so I didn't want to take a chance with them." at www.allpar.com/eek/o2.html . So now Im wondering about the Borg Warner Nascars ones Kragen sells.

                        Also wouldn't the fact that they're NASCAR endorsed help make my car go faster?

                            I'll keep my eyes peeled. I believe I have Bosch, which would explain the early failure.

                              I'm pretty sure the OEM sensors are Bosch, but I could be wrong on that. Anyone have an old crusty manifold laying around with an original O2 sensor? If its Bosch, it will have thier logo stamped into it. AC-Delco original sensors are Bosch. I bought some for my truck, and when I removed the sensor from the AC-Delco box, it had a Bosch emblem stamped into it. The injectors are also mostly Bosch on these, some newer (like mid-late 90s) might have Nippon-Denso injectors tho.
