Just wanted to follow up with everyone who helped me out with this
one. Just replaced the sensor a bit ago and it wasn't too bad. I used
a medium side adjustable wrench but man was it a pain to get leverage
enough to loosen it. I had about 10" inches on either side of the
sensor to work with and about 5" of play from 4 o'clock to about 2
o'clock. The dumb heat shield thing that surrounds this part...Jesus,
what retard though to not make it removable to be able to easily get
at this sensor. If it wasn't for the shield it would take two seconds
to remove. In retrospect, a 7/8" deep socket would easily do the trick
for anyone wanting to replace it so long as you're 100% sure it's the
problem part. Just cut the wires right where they're coming out and
you'll get this sucker out in no time. The space is tight so getting
leverage is the only tough part. If you have big arms it's gonna be a
tough one. All in all it took around 1 & 1/2 hours. It is located just
above the catalytic converter under the engine. I know it's not a
binaries group but if this pic helps someone else, save yourself the
$500 the dealer would charge.

The actual OEM part I replaced was 89467-06020 and I replaced it with
the suggested part of 239-9047. Turned the key and MIL light is gone.
I paid around $80 for the Denso part on eBay. Thanks everyone for the
advice and tips.

They sell O2 sensor sockets. They look about like a spark plug socket
with a slit cut on the side for the wires to pass through.
I've got one from having to change one a few years ago.
When changing a O2 sensor, you want to warm it up and get it hot first.
Usually makes it easier to break loose. And always use anti-seize
paste on the new one, but that's pretty much a given because most all
are sold with the paste already on it, or include a little tube of it.
