Re: O2 Sensor for Subaru EJ20

Thanks for the replies. I did do an ecu reset before starting the engine with the new O2 sensor. Started it up and went for a run that's when it started to cough and splutter after about 10 minutes.
Will check readings and see what I get.
Many Thanks

Re: trailing arm bushes query with pics

Any advice on fitting these bushes? can it be done at home with simple tools and limited facilities or does it need to go to an engineers and get pressed in with a hydraulic press or something with a bit more clout?
