Personally, I am skeptical of the notion that the Greek debt crisis stands to jeopardize the fiscal security of the EU as a whole, contrary to the grumblings and premonitions of doom coming out of Germany. Despite a common currency, the economies of the various eurozone nations are still, and are likely always to remain, largely independent. This isn't a philosophical argument, it's simply reality. EU member states are quite diverse and still largely autonomous in terms of their individual contributions to the global economy (manufacturing, technology, agriculture, services, energy, etc), and the financial hardships of one nation will no sooner cause the demise of the union than California's budgetary crisis will bankrupt the US Federal government.

I value your input but , ice cream don't got no bones as sure as you can't predict the direction off the egg with a skeleton dancing on a hot tin roof.

Sounds good but you want it at 8 o'clock not two o'clock. If it is a wideband then 6oclock or if you have a 24hour exhaust pipe then 5am because they're early risers.

Just mount the sensor such that the end with the wire coming out of it is pointed more-or-less upwards, and set it back from the turbo as much as is practical. My Innovate wideband sensor is mounted under the car, a foot or two forward of the catalytic converter, pointed straight up. This is a surprisingly convenient place for it, actually. There's plenty of space to work in, and you can run the cable straight up into the cab through a slit cut into the outer rubber shift boot. Since mine uses the LC-1 module and requires that it be mounted near the sensor, I simply tie-wrapped the LC-1 directly to the PPF, and ran the sensor cable up and around the top of the transmission. Been like that for years.
