Bad 02 sensor or need a tune

This will be my first mustang its a 06 mustang gt its showing to have a bad o2 sensor and the guy says its idling bad when he cranks it up and at a stop but it also has a steeda cold air intake and it was on there wen he got it. He doesnt know if its had a tune for the steeda and ive heard that without a tune it can really make it run bad. I would love to buy this car but really dont know if its the o2 or needs a tuner is there any way to tell before i buy it?

There should be an error code if it's an O2 sensor. Depending on whether it's an upstream or downstream sensor, i.e. #1 or #2, it might also be responsible for the poor running. An upstream or #1 sensor affects the mixture whereas the downstream sensor (it's only there to check catalyst function) does not.

Any OBD II code reader will tell you.
