Not to hijack your thread but I think my o2's are plugged in wrong also. Which plug is which? Is round/pre cat and square/post cat, or vice versa? I've searched constantly and can't get a definitive answer.

Also, you should check out the Red Bull soap box derby on Sarurday. It's gonna be insane.

You'd have to have inpa or something like that to check It out. Cause it wouldn't throw a code, but it'd be running rough. Post and pre cat sensors are different plugs so they don't get mismatched. But you can mismatch pre cat 1&2 sensors, you know what I mean?

I have a feeling that all four of them are mismatched. I'm going to slap the Euro 2 tune on soon to eliminate the post cat o2's, but I'm concerned that the post and pre's are in the wrong spots. I cant remember whether the square plugs are in the post cat spots or pre. and vice versa for the round plugs. Which is why I am trying to figure out which plugs go in which location. Are the square plugs pre or post?

Ms45 dme?

You can't use the eu2 tune, so please don't go slapping things on there lol

I assume so since you said square and round. Square is pre cat and round is post cat.

Good thing I asked. The Dme threads are all so vague that I just assumed. I guess my only option is to run O2 sims?
