Nope!  I don't have a crappy Bosch!  They die fast on leaded fuel.  I have had buddy's NTK sensors last 7 years on pure race fuel diets.  Even if I was using only pump gas I would stick with the NTK.  NGK for the win!

I read that with Bosch , "you can buy better, but you can't pay more."

NTK all the way.  I have seen too many Bosch go bad.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Buying a quality controller/sensor will save you time and money. With cheaper stuff the 0-5v output is a mess, and you could have ground offset issues. Some of the newer cheap controllers come with serial out to eliminate the issues with analog - but your software has to support it and still stuck with a mediocre sensor.
