The sensor itself can be had for ~$250, maybe a little less. Installing it is easy. Rent an O2 socket if you don't have one, and remember - left loosey, righty tighty. It's in the passenger-side exhaust collector. Easy to get to by removing a plastic access panel in the front inner portion of the wheel well.

Would Bosch sensor on a 06 sti be ok?

Oh and how bad is it for the engine without a working one....because I need to drive back about 800 miles...I mean chances are that it will run richer than leaner I think. Right?

It is a Bosch sensor... But you have to make sure you get the right kind.

How bad it is depends on what your fuel trims are right now, but it will eventually go rich.

Vise Gips FTW. The 10" ones were perfect for removing my O2 sensor which hadn't been pulled once in 109,000 miles until I had to do it.

i literally just replaced mine... its a snap.. Like 5 minutes if that! First unplug your sensor. Turn the wheel to the right. Bend back your wheel cover (passenger side... lol) and there she is.... i used a 22mm box wrench (if im not mistaken). i was lucky enough to pick a new/used sensor for $50.00!!! SCORE! if i was to buy a new one $175.00 OEM.

But your car will run rich... very crappy below 2500rpms when its on closed loop.

I had the same problem not long ago..dealer and aftermarket parts place wanted $350-$400 and some online places $150..eventually got an exact fitting(Bosch) one from Importecparts.com for $55..it has worked flawlessly for the last 2months of owning the car

that sounds a little pricey. If it is the front (pre cat) sensor dont wait because if it does run rich, it could damage the catalyst. If u need a post cat sensor you could put it off as that one just monitors the catalyst efficiency...no bearing on fuel mixture. some aftermarket sensors are crappy and require using the existing connector, crimping the wires to the sensor. dont get one of these

Thats the price you pay when you have a dealership install it. Learn to work on your car yourself and you can save money. If not, then pay up.
