    Thanks firebirdjones just when I thought I found the cheapest price you do one better. I don't really have a preference since I am not educated enough to have an opinion.
    There was a link to a site a friend gave me where they did a comparison of 8 o2's on a header to compare the accuracy however to get all the info I had to sign up for some mags.
    This is what I tried to read

    Your welcome. The beginning of that article leads you to believe that those sensors act differently from one another. I couldn't read page 2 either But I have read and been told by a couple of tuners that some 02 sensors send different frequencies or operate differently in some way. Some heat up easier or faster than others etc...
    Enough to cause a concern to touch up the tune?? I don't know that, I'm not that savy tuning with these laptops. But the critic in me usually wants to hook up the laptop and just check things.

    One part in what I think was that article said the brands all used a part by bosch. Haven't heard enough bad about ac delco or bosch so I think I will go with the bosch's. My o2's are completely gone so I don't have to worry (for now) about my car not liking another brand.

    I can tell you I run Bosch sensors in mine, and my wifes car has ACdelco currently. Both cars run long tube headers. I haven't had issues with either sensor.

    I ordered the boschs. Asked a guy here locally about that part # for the long ac delco's and he said they weren't that long. So A little more money spent.

    I have stock size, screened MAF. I don't know how was MAF mentioned here? Narrow band O2 sensors were tuned.

    You stated that the "frequency" was tuned in your post. A narrowband O2 sensor's output is in millivolts. A MAF's output is in hertz (or frequency). That's why I am not sure what you meant by your post.
