Default o2 sensor brands.

I've been looking around for an AC Delco 02 for quite some time, and today the guy over at advance told me that even if I do find one, it will really be a Bosch in a different box.... What'* the point then? and is this guy misinformed?

Very misinformed. My Bosch O2 sensor that failed after 30 days was VERY different from the AC Delco that I replaced it with.

Will'* right.... our cars don't like the Bosch O2 sensors....
My mechanic tried 2 in my 91 (both died within weeks) and finally put in an AC Delco... it'* been fine ever since.

Just buy an AC Delco. I don't want any more people blowing money on something that doesn't work. Bosch has it'* place in the world, but it'* just not under the hood of a Bonneville.
