 I have given up forcing mileage out of my upstream sensors;

I was astounded at the current Ford price for my upstream O2 sensors;

Local dealer; cash, wholesale $113.07 list...$96.11 net, plus tax, "might be a little more off"

5 Star Ford ; same, Max wasnt there , but "he usually knocks off a little more" Plus Shipping, no tax.


ford-parts.com Now, there is a website which is kind of a pain in the butt to navigate, but bottom line, $62.33 each, plus 10% shipping ($6.23) Guess who gets my money?

I will report on accuracy and service later ;D

It took about a week to get them, but that was over the New years week end, so I am not complaining...Came in sealed factory bags, and had a new anti sieze compound on the first few threads... were exactly what they were supposed to be regarding calibration code... Put the new O2 sensors today , and it took a little over45 minutes ....I am looking for better mileage....

How did you fit under the car?  We all know you have a big belly and would have to lift the car like 3' to get at the O2 sensors!!!  :box:
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.
