Default Supercharger Coupler and O2 Sensor Questions

Well, I just got back from General Rapists....I mean Motors...

Seems my supercharger coupler is in fact kaput...not a big deal. But of course GM doesn't sell the parts seperately. So where do I get a new coupler (and smaller pulley )? On top of that, is the procedure for changing the coupler posted somewhere? How big of a job is it? Is the pulley press fit onto the coupler or just bolted on?

Second, I am intending to replace my O2 sensor...except GM wants $111.38 for one. Of course, the service manager informed me I should "Stick with a GM one, everything else is ****." Please tell me there are some REASONABLY priced alternatives (as I'm sure there are, as GM seems apt to screw me).

Thanks in advance guys.

Coupler from www.zzperformance.com
O2 sensor from www.gmpartsdirect.com for half that price, and the dealer is correct. Everything else is ****, with the POSSIBLE exception of NGK.

They pulled a crappy price on you
Get the coupler and the other goodies in the sticky at the top of the Forced Induction forum, and we'll walk you through the work when you get it. It'* fun, fairly easy, and can be done in a day. You'll actually enjoy it, I think.

Try www.pulleyboys.com

They're our preferred Series 1 pulley source.
