I think that may have been you on the phone a few minutes ago, but if not we stock Lambda Sensors for R32, R33, R34, & V35 Skylines ;)

You just need a zirconium type with the correct number of wires, and it will be fine, plenty of universal types out there without Nissan price tags.

yeah all good, zirconium one on the way for friday. soldering iron is out ready ;)
hope it makes a bit of a difference as cars been feeling a bit rough lately with the colder weather. (similar to last year) and the O2 sensor was the only thing i didn't change last time.

if you want an NTK lambda with the correct plug but for half the cost of Nissan dealership try
http://www.lambdasensor.com/

http://www.lambdasensor.co.uk/main/skyline.htm

Nissan use NTK (NGK) items, the ONLY difference is they have a really small Nissan logo on them.

Fitted. Had to crimp the wires cause my solder wouldn’t take



I know everyone says it, but it's made a real difference, car feels so much smother to drive, wanna see what it’s like on a really cold morning now as this is when it gave the most trouble in the past.

Got a good run to do this week so looking forward to see what I can get out of it fuel wise

Hope it lasts for you, the cheapo one I bought only lasted a couple of months before the sensor tip broke off inside the chamber

can't understand why the genuine sensors are so over priced.

I payed 60 for a water temp sensor once, from the ni$$an stealership.

i mean i know they are important but just how can they justify that price for essentially a service item. lol.
