    Wideband o2 sensors

    Okay so one of my 02's went bad and i figured i might as well just get some wideband o2's already. So where is the best/cheapest place to get some? I think i remember something about Corvette sensors being that? Or are the Corvette sensors just longer?

    the corvette rear O2 sensors aren't wideband but they are recommended to be used with LT headers because the wiring is longer and reaches up the harness connectors without using extensions.
    A Wideband O2 sensor won't just plug in and replace your existing O2 sensors. They read different voltages so your PCM won't know what going on. WBs are usually added on with a gauge or datalogging device.

    Ohhhh!! I get it now, my current sensors reach just fine for my lt's. I thought wb's could be used meanwhile that the car hadn't been tuned but now i get it. Thanks again Cutlass!

    Most carry them. You may want to do a little searching around though as prices tend to vary depending on where you get them from. Might even search online - might be able to find them a little cheaper - but with shipping I'm not sure.
