Default Looking for Cheap Replacement for Front Oxygen Sensor

I autocross my Suby and run leaded race fuel. I regularly go through front oxygen sensors and they are pretty expensive. I noticed on this website you can buy sensors without the factory pigtails:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/

I have no issues installing the pigtail myself if it saves $100+ dollars. Has anyone just ordered the sensor and done the wiring themselves?

If so can you please provide some links and part numbers to only the sensor.

Thanks,
Justin

I have a 2004 STi

I saw this on MachV's website and made me think of your posting:
http://www.fastwrx.com/deoxse.html

"...Normally, we wouldn't be interested in selling something that cost roughly the same as an OEM piece except when there was an added benefit. The new Denso oxygen sensors have such a benefit... the ability to handle leaded gas!

DENSO Oxygen Sensors were rated as TWO TIMES MORE RESISTANT to silicone and lead poisoning.....

...Aluminum Oxide Trap Layer: A DENSO exclusive, this specially designed aluminum oxide coating keeps silicone and lead outside the ceramic element and prevents silicone poisoning or damage to the platinum electrode..."

Hope this helps...
