    I second that...Delco..

    I just went thru an experience with a New bosch O2 from Autozone that was flat lined right outta the box....there went $46

    Replaced it with a Delco ($41) and passed inspection...

    of course by this time I had to pay for a Diagnostic ($75) to find the bad O2, and an additional $30 for the third go round with the inspection Nazis....

    I figger Bosch cost me $110.... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    We installed Bosch Super Cu (Copper) HR-9-BC's in my nephew's '93 K1500 Z71 Sportside back on 10/12/02 & 172K miles. Now at 189K & they still seem to be working ok.

    Installed NGK UR5's on my '95 K2500 Sub with 132K miles last wknd & they also seem to be working fine.

    Just some alternatives to AC-Delco.

    Haven't replaced any O2 sensors yet so can't offer any advice on them.

    Here's a FYI: O2 sensors are available in heated & non-heated versions. The heated versions usually? have more wires -- 3 or 4 vs 2 for the unheated version -- and AFAIK are only used on 'newer' OBDII vehicles. Heated versions are also ~twice the price of unheated versions.

    Good luck.

    Always use AC O2's on GM engines, Bosch's usually wont throw a code if they are bad for some reason.

    I always use AC R43TS plugs. I use on the K5, Buick, and the 454 in my boat. They are great plugs

    Brand I have on now is Standard (O2 and plug wires). I have used their stuff before, and have no complaints at all. Always seems to be very good. Plugs I am using NGK. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
