I just installed some Pace Setter LT's on my '98 camaro, and the passenger side O2 is hitting the trans. pan. It is in, but I would like to get a shorter one before the wires break.

Does anyone know if there are shorter than stock O2's out there for better clearance???

the only O2 sensors ive seen that were shorter are the ones on the Asian cars. i have no idea which one to suggest and you would probably have to find a wiring diagram for the donor vehicle to wire it in. even then you would most likely need to replace the sensor from the other side with the same to prevent setting O2 codes. i would either move the bung as Dave suggested or dimple the pan.

o2 sensors ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE o2 sensors have different watt ...yes watt values

this is why you dont use universals

possible damage MAY occur to the ecm

for example a vehickle has 4 os sensors they not only are different lengths but have different watt values

ive never seen a misshap ...but then again i never used anything the oe doesnt use

you would be better off relocating or make clearance

hopr this helps

Thanks for all the input!!! I was told today at Motion auto parts that the Bosch sensors for my car are shorter, but they had none in stock. They did recommend replacing both at the same time. I have 24" O2 extensions, and there isnt much more length to relocate. (need to be moved ~6") I may just end up dimpling the trans pan. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
