Default Toyota vs aftermarket O2 sensor?

Can someone tell me what are the differences between an OEM O2 sensor and a
Universal one, made by Bosch for example?
Same for OEM plugs versus Bosch ones?

Cheers

JP

Different sensors will give a different voltage for a given O2
concentration. A Toyota vehicle is programmed for the voltages from a Toyota
sensor, not a BMW sensor. Now if there's a "universal" O2/voltage
relationship, then any sensor would work. However in the auto industry,
"universal" is a bad word.

Universal ones are not heated, so if it works at all it won't work very
well until the exhuast heats up.

So, with a Universal O2 sensor, gas consumption would go up, right?

If it was a heated aftermarker sensor I don't imagine it was much
cheaper than a Toyota factory one.

£45 UK, as opposed to the beemer £94+VAT. No idea about toyota prices TBH.

Theres something to be said for getting the dealer part tho - might cost
more but at least you know it runs as it is meant to. Unless you are willing
to spend alot of time researching.

As I recall when I needed one the single wire unheated aftermarket was
$84 Cnd., the Toyota was $136. I would imagine a heated aftermarket
would be somewhere in between but I couldn't find one at the time.

No harm in asking, that is what this group is FOR. The major difference
is the price. And you might have to splice the connector on yourself.
