Default MIL extendors?

Are the fittings on the MILS the same as the O2s? I installed an 03 pipe on my 04 because I need to pass emmissions here in CA and my MILs are in a different location. Go figure. So I'm looking at getting a set of O2 extensions if they will fit. I didn't think about checking till my car was off the lift. I really don't feel like jacking it up and crawling under it right now, so if anyone knows if they will work or have done it before, your imput would be awesome. Thanks

yes the MIL eliminators should work on your car. the extensions are the same connector too i think they are all the same from 86-04

Sorry, I guess that was a little unclear after reading it through again. I need MIL extensions not eliminators. I'm wondering if the front oxygen sensors have the same fittings as the rears. If so I will just get the oxygen sensor extension harness so I can extend my MIL wires.

You don't have to buy extenders, just cut the wires and use a good grade of butt connector, and a good crimper, to splice in more wire. Make sure to fill the butt connectors with dielectric grease to bed it all in,then tape itup--I've been running with crimped and bedded butt splices in the rear O2 wiring for over a year and 35k miles...

Yeah, thats what i was thinking. I'd rather find someone with a used (but still working of course) set. But I'll probly end up splicing.

Make sure you use good crimpers, the "staking" type are the best simple tools (but hard to find)--the compound leverage "forming" type are the best (Harbor Freight has a good setfor $10). [/align][/align]The common "squashing" type suck...[/align][/align][/align]
