    I am pretty sure that is the one I used to fix a friends. In the reviews there are several happy '02 owners. It is supposed to be the OEM one.

    Same one I used on my 03, the wire in ones never work unless done absolutely correct. They are reading, sending signals.. They can't do it properly with butt connectors to try and flow current thru.. The only way is to remove the oem plug and use the correct factory terminals and slide the oem plug onto the terminals like a new oem plug in sensor.. But Bosch honestly doesn't make that great of parts and they never work well with Japanese vehicles.

    I'll put it this way, a old rusty beer can full of cotton balls would be a better option. Granted this was years ago and it was the cheapest one... but it was dissappointing to say the least.

    I take a smidgen of pride in knowing the basics of engines, but what the heck are tumbler valves?

    ^ saves me some words to type It basically makes the intake airflow more turbulant so that low speed atomization is more efficient.

    I just read this whole thread. Pretty epic stuff. Please post your dyno results here once you get this thing tuned, I need to see this play itself out.

    I wonder if I could make my sensor work if I tried soldering the wires, rather than using the connectors it came with...

    My oil smells like fuel. Not sure if I should be concerned about this. I did a bit of research and it seems that a lot of people have experienced that, and experience it more often during excessive idling. I've been a freak about letting my car idle and warm up ALL the way before I drive it, and will continue to be for another 1000 miles or so for breakin. Any comments on that issue are welcome.

    Now, I need some new tires and a new windshield. And I still need to figure out the problem with my turbo wastegate solenoid. Do these things tend to go bad? All my connections seem to be fine.. Maybe I will have to learn to use a voltage tester.

    They do go bad. Run 12v straight to it, and see if you hear it clicking.

    If it clicks does that mean it's bad, or is it supposed to click?

    Injectors click, and depending on what you have the click can be loud.

    I thought he was talking about the turbo wastegate solenoid. Does that click? I have the stock part.
