Anyone using it? Is it plug and play? Thanks.

I heard it's supposed to work great. Especially with race fuel. As far as I can tell it comes with everything needed to hook it all up. Don't know how simple it will be, a friend is getting his on his '86 T next week. Hopefully someone has more info...

Does it cause a more linear O2 at WOT?

No, the only thing it does is warm up quickly and cause the car to go into closed loop more quickly. Some of them have caused a decrease in fuel mileage and as they get older/get a little lead on them, they tend to lose range rather than setting a code.

Yes, it is a plug and play set up. Heated sensors normally have three wires although some have four. We use the three wire version. Two of the wires are the same color and one is different. The odd colored wire is the sensor wire. The other two are the power wires-one goes to a ground point and the other to any switched 12 volt source. Some people use the 12 v from the wastegate solenoid as it is close. Others go to a fan relay or such.

The trick for obtaining max life when using race fuel is to turn the key on for 30-60 seconds before starting the engine in order to let the element get hot.

Thanks for all the info Steve. I will just stay with the stock GM sensor.
