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

With the engine warmed up, if the 02's are moving slower than 1 per second then it's fukd. Do you really wanna chance an engine on a 20 dollar part.

One last time. With Erics 6.1 chip if the NB and WB aren't in perfect working order, then you're in for a world of hurt.

My experience is that a part that is working correctly is more like to be good than a new part that has yet to be proven.

If it's not broke- fix it till it is.

I should have noted that my comments only apply to an O2 sensor that has only seen non-leaded gas thru the fuel system and is still properly active on the cross over counts as Brad mentioned....

My bad TT6.1
Yes it is very responsive on and of the gas.Yes WB NB seems to be going in the same direction.
I got to thinking about what has been said,so I looked at some older logs and the most resent,they look very similar.
Thanks again I ask the question you guys come back with good feedback,the old brain starts to work and I fill good about letting it ride and keep a eye one the numbers.
