So After getting my DP welded, My front O2 Sensor went bad.
Checked for all the issues that have been mentioned- Fuses , Exposed wiring/ grounding , Loose harness Etc.
Upon trying to remove the old O2 and replace with a stocker, the thing just wouldn't come out.
PB'ed it a few times and then hit it with heat. The bung was cherry red, twice and we couldnt get it out. So the tech at my buddys shop is telling me that when they are that hard to get out- The threads usually come out with.
So at this point, I'm not sure what the best thing to do is, I'd be happy with the car running as it was.
Is there a way to "jump" it out with a retail product, or home brew?
I figure taking it out and having a new bung welded in may be more labor in $ then just going with a stock replacement pipe
Or go ELH?
Weighing the pros and cons, ELH is a good chunk of money, although I am planning for bigger turbo down the line. If ELH happens I might just nuke the whole thing and build it all. Serious money I'd prefer to save.
