If you ever want to change to a wideband O2 sensor, you should install a bung 18"? [check the WB02 instructions], or further, away from the engine -- the WB02 sensors don't do well with lots of engine heat (they include their own heater). The bung should be positioned so that if water/condensation is in the exahust at startup, that it won't flow into the O2 sensor.
I appreciate the info, the connectors are the same between these two sensors as well so I'm sure everything should be straightforward and turn out well.
