[QUOTE=RarlyL8;4397691] An O2 sensor is an O2 sensor. It doesn't care what it is hooked to. I have had my AFR O2 sensor screwed into that stock spot for 10 years with no ill resultsQUOTE]

I've often wondered at the same logic, but have seen so many cautions from others about these Bosch wide band sensors failing prematurely due to excessive heat. I wonder if that's the nature of wide band, vs. the more robust narrow band O2 sensors?
I still haven't installed my LM2 yet, and would sure like to avoid welding a bung on post-turbo if it's not necessary. You're giving me reason to consider using the bung already installed next to the stock sensor. WTF, the only risk would be the cost of a replacement if it toasted on me.
