Excellent. You're on the right track. Don't buy Bosch Platinums or wires, either.

Never really figured it out, but we have EXTREMELY high failure rates with bosch O2'*, plugs, and wires.

Funny, since there are other bosch parts on our cars, but those parts installed at the factory are manufactured to GM specs.

Don't be a gune, do the tune! After the urging here, It completely changed my car which somehow had thrived on neglect for 150,000 mi. Plugs, wires, PCV, O2, and fuel filter sparked a major recovery. A gutted airbox with drop in K&N was just gravy. Cleaning the TB and MAF screen is next.

You really can't tell where the car is until ya take care of the fundamentals.

Default 02

If your getting a rotten egg smell its probably the 02. I'm monitoring mine currently and I think the guys are dead right on Bosch.
Don't forget a standard tuneup includes Plugs, wires, PCV, fuel and Air filters, fuel injector cleaner, and cleaning of the throttle body and sensors.
