Mate the genuine ones for the 6cyc are like $450!!! I think Papa Smurf can source some aftermarket ones pretty cheap and are good quality

My current Bosch O2 sensor for my 6 cylinder was bought from ebay. Seems to be working just fine but I have noticed a slight increase in fuel consumption as of late so I think I am due for a new one...it's been 4 years or so...so thanks for the reminder :)

you can get the genuine ones from ebay for 1/4 of the cost of going to ford..
aslong as there made by ntk to suit your car they are the genuine ones..

i brought one for our au a few weeks back and it was to suit au,ba,teritory and explorer.it was made by ntk and had the ford logo on it..
it was $68..

ok just after a bit of an opinion. as im doing this to get read for a dyno tune the same seller is also selling a map sensor to suit my car.
Would it be wise to change that aswell or not bother till i know mine is rooted?
I think mine is operating fine but cant be sure as its at 170000ks now.
