That's F$%#ed!!!!
Both the O2 sensor and the pricks that did it..
By the looks of it the bung on the exhaust is shagged so when you take it back to them make sure they grind the old bung off and fit a new one.
Otherwise they may just force a new O2 sensor in as they did the first time. :evil:

f**k them tell them to change your extractors and get u a new o2 sensor , i mean somthing like this will surly over time give u a non acurat reading and maybe stuff your car over time.

or get them to re thread the thread in the extractors.

good luck

yes, i took it back down to the exhaust place, he re did the threads on the oxy sensor and re tapped the extractors..

lets just say, driving without an oxy sensor is a different experience..

lots of noise, and you go no where ;)

felt like i was driving a holden :shock:
