I would like to buy new O2 sen

I would like to buy new O2 sensors and see many of them on ebay. There are the Bosch ones, the Uni-Part ones, and NTK ones. The prices are hightest for the Bosch ones. The NTK ones I think are made in the USA and are medium priced. And the UFI ones seem cheap and have the lowest price. Does anyone have any experience for preference amoung these?

Jeff,
For my money, I'd go with the Bosch units...as their quality is a "known commodity." I don't believe, and would be very surprised, if the O2 sensor used is unique to Ferrari.

Try these guys...and do a search off the number on your O2 sensor.

Jeff,

Here's another possible source...

Most of the 02 sensors (1,2 or 3 wire) are electrcially the same. The biggest difference is usually the connector type. Although I would prefer an exact match, if the 02 sensor for the TR is unnecessarily expensive, I'd consider a "universal" type, where you splice into your existing connector. I suspect that's what's pretty common on ebay. As the voltages and currents from the O2 sensor are very low, I'm not a big fan of splicing wires in an automotive enviroment...

Anytime...You're welcome.

Hi Guys,

the OEM Bosch # for 87-91 TR's is ~ 13009

I pulled this # from the Bosch O2 Sensor Catalouge in the Ferrari section.

The above number also agrees with the Bosch Master Catalouge.

I've been looking high and

I've been looking high and low and this is how things appear so far. The cheapest I can find the exact Bosch sensor is $119 from importtec. I scanned ALL the O2 sensors on ebay and see many that are the same Bosch sensor body but with different connectors with prices ranging from $40 to maybe around $90. If the sensors have the same housing, are they the same internally and electrically? If this is the case it will simply need the OE connectors spliced on, can this present a problem? I would prefer to soldier and shrink tube the connectors on rather than crimp them for the best possible connection. Is there a downside to doing it this way? Again I don't want to appear cheap, but money saved here can go towards something else getting done.
