Rey's "special package" arrived today, so I installed the heat shield and I'm good to go!

Big thanks to Rey for hobbling down to the post office and sending me some of his heat shield and refusing to take a dime even to cover shipping. It's people like Rey that make this forum so great!

Alternate sensor location

Just for the collective knowledge pool, here's where I had installed mine "back then". Long enough tail pipe didn't result in any significant ambient O2 from affecting the readings, plus greatly extends the life of the WB sensors which don't like the heat.

Interesting Mark. Appreciate you posting the pic. My Rarlyl8 exhaust already has the pre-configured bung, so unless I want to cap that and drill and weld another one, I am stuck where I am.

There have to be a bunch of turbo owners with AFR sensors just after the turbo. What is the general consensus as to how long it should last? Mine lasted 14 months. (really only a year of driving since I was just finishing my engine out project this time last year.)

And while the differences in readings from after the turbo to before the turbo are documented, what is the real world difference when moving the sensor further away from the turbo, but still after the turbo?

Hey Rey-

Nice to be noticed!

Been busy, 'tis all. And all Rawknees' talk VbelowV about er "rubbing off" just spooks me, so I maintain my distance!!!

Nothin new fer me here, and this place's been a bit of a snorefest since all the Black993 *bullsh!!t* so I've been off-grid mostly.

Btw, my WBO2's been mounted 45* from top/center of mah Zork fer maaaaany years & miles now sans nuke'age.

Btwbtw, Jeff - I too was getting wonky AFR readings once, turned out my sensor heater wire came unplugged @ the guage - sure scared the bejeebus out of me too!

I have a zork and my sensor is right after the turbo. Previously I had it similar to Marks (pre -zork). No difference in readings. Sensor (Bosch) has lasted about 7 yrs so far, mostly at WOT. I built a nomex/Al sandwich heat shield across the rear of the engine the sensor wires disappear into. I have a spare sensor I purchased at same time, expecting issues. Still in box.

Bringing this back from the dead. My sensor just died again.
Just over two years and maybe 5000 miles. So I guess Rey's heat cloth over the sensor and wire helped to double the life, it's still frustratingly short lived.

Is there a better brand of sensor that maybe lasts longer?
Which one do you have Alan that lasted 7 years?

Mine is a Bosch. I can get the numbers for you in a day or two. I still have the original on after 10 yrs. BUTT, leaded fuel will kill them quick time. I will get some numbers for you in a day or two.

Thanks Alan. Let me know when you get a moment.

I found this one on Amazon. Different than the one I got two years ago and much cheaper too.

Just not at car right now. I bought a spare one, expecting to chew them out under extreme track conditions, - still in box. So I can get the numbers easy when I get to car/shed.

That may be what I have. Let you know soon.

OK, there is no serial number on the sensor body. But the packing slip gives some clues.
I purchased it from Ballenger Motorsports.
Their product code is SNSR-01012, and it is listed on the packing slip as Bosch LSU WB O2 sensor (UEGO).
Hopefully that helps - but it is looking like your Amazon product. Maybe cross check (if still listed) with Ballenger website.

Innovate bung extension/heat sink I bought on eBay for a good price, and a home-made heat diffuser that wraps around the sensor body -
Id hate to see the rest of that Ebay invoice.
