Default Disaster! :-(

Somehow during the installation of my header and catback exhaust. My front and rear o2 sensors were damaged! It's ending up costing me a total of like $675 to get it fixed.

Just a lesson, for all those whom are inexperienced in doing this kind of work, have it professionally done! its definately worth it. I probably could have gotten my exhaust installed for $200 somewhere but now it's costing me triple that.

$675 is freaking obscene...


you could buy the two sensors for 1/3 of that...

install takes a $15 special socket, and maybe 30 minutes if they don't have to try and free the old ones

Why pay someone to install sensors that you could do yourself? If you have the tools to install the header and exhaust you should have what you need for the sensors. The sensors themselves are what ~$50 at the parts store (at least thats what I paid last time)? I wouldn't pay that kind of money for a sensor to be installed.

That is a ridiculous sum for your o2 sensors..My o2 sensor went bad on my Si the primary one they are not to hard to install it. I did it myself..Make sure your o2 sensors are NGK or DENSO..I got mine at a foreign auto part, Denso is OEM quality. If you go to the dealer o2 sensors will come ina Honda package but the sensor will say DENSO. My sensor only cost me about $150.00......You are definitely getting ripped off buddy. Just like BAKER is telling you. ..
