Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


This is something you might want to ask on the forums. Well.. they might tell you to research it first and then ask. But I have no idea if you will have issues with sensor compatibility, voltage specs, codes, a/f ratio accuracy, etc. I'm just guessing there on those factors as well. Anyway, sorry that's not all that helpful.
