I just told them to look up a Mustang, though you need to go newer to get the 3-wire, maybe 1990+. It was cheap, under $40 if I remember right. Bosch makes *all* the O2 sensors, as far as I know, for American and European models. They're virtually all the same except for the connectors that you'll clip off, except some weird ones that may be 2-wire, with combined grounds. Choose the one with the longest wires on it so that your splices will be made away from the manifold heat. Bill Ward
