O2 Sensor Brand

I'll probably be going to true dual set up in a couple of months on my V6 3.9L 2004 Mustang and was wondering what your opinions were of a good brand of O2 Sensor? I could use the old ones but I figured I'd just have them changed out instead of going through the trouble of twisting the old ones out. Thanks.

Re: O2 Sensor Brand

yes that does sound like a great idea... I think that is usually a good idea especially when the cars start getting up in age......

As far as the brand goes I would Motorcraft, or Ford Genuine. They will be the easiest to work with and most likely give you the least trouble.

Re: O2 Sensor Brand

R u planning on doing headers? The only way there would be a problem with yours is if you have longtubes and need extensions

Re: O2 Sensor Brand

The best by far are OEM.

Cost more but you'll only have to buy them once.

Re: O2 Sensor Brand

Yeah, doing headers but only doing BBK Shorties. I know they don't pose much of a gain, but 1) they're easy to install 2) they will allow a little better engine breathing 3) my car is lowered and I don't want to have issues with clearance. I'm not really into getting tons of power lol, just a sportier performance is ok with me. Thanks everyone for being so helpful! You guys are great.

I have my stock 02 sensors just fyi, if that means anything but thats 122,000 miles worth and still no issues with them.

as far as the shorties you already know. Long tubes aren't much harder to install, the bbk's breath a not noticeable amount more, and I'm on coil overs and I've never had clearance issues. But they are great to install if your passenger header is about to crack!
