Unnecessary paint adds weight. Who see'* your engine when it matters?

Picked up a new upstream 02 sensor but cant get the old one losened. The sensor socket I have is the type that is cut out for the wires and it just flexes and slips.
Going out to pick up a 7/8'* crows foot. Last option, cut off wires and use a 6 point socket.
Is it better to do these cold or when engine is warm?

Hasn't failed but car has 273,000 kms on it and previous owner said it was never changed. Figured it may help gas milage as gas here is $1.30 a liter, over $5.20 a gallon.

Based on my mileage, I should be in need of power steering and fuel pumps sometime soon, though the ones I have now are still doing their jobs nicely.

Dan ported one a while back. IIRC, he blocked off the existing MAF hole and said it'd need an LT1 or an LQ4, which also means a $20 wiring extension/adapter from ZZP.

Not sure how much gain I'd see on the stock exhaust setup, even with the cam, but if you feel like porting it and feel I wouldn't be wasting my money, PM me.

I'm planning on all the dex 6 walmart has on the shelf. Then in a couple days I can go get the rest. They won't carry gallons and only have what'* stocked. Ugh.
