Question Quick! I need Header/O2 sensor help!

Hi Gang,

I didn't search - I'm sitting in front of autozone so I thought it would be quicker to just ask...

I've got a new to me '99 XJ I6 5spd 4WD with a header. I need to replace the front (b4 cat) sensor. stock is of course, not long enough. is there a drop in replacement that will work?
I know that it's not good to splice sensor wires since most of the devices are resistance based...

Many thanks


Rich

Good luck!

They're not resistance based. Instead of getting a model specific O2 sensor with the Chryco connector, get a universal O2 sensor. It'll have longer wires and a connector that will hard-wire in with instructions. Or at least the Bosch ones do Hope that helps!
