Bosch's are stock, and its basically as simple as the fact that they work. If it works, why bother trying something else? Not like it's a performance gain.

So, stick with Bosch's, its a good brand.

Is there a reason why you're changing it?


Cheers

...long explanation cut short wide band (normally 5 wire or 6 wire) allow you to pretty accurately measure air to fuel ratio.. 0-5V they range, and give you an exact indication of air vs fuel mixture. Narrow band oxygen sensors basically show >0.5V for rich and <0.5V for lean..

Its a bit more copmlex than that, but thats basically what the difference is.

And before someone asks, you can't just put a wideband on replacing the old narrowband, and think you'll have better efficiency or power or something. Firstly it won't work with the stock ECU (unless you get a wideband controller with a narrowband output), and secondly the sensors aren't worth much, but the controllers are. And unless you're tuning, you don't really need it. Unless you like to keep an eye on things.

Cheers
