Re: 02 oxygen sensors 99 altezza automatic /trip 3sge 2.0 be

don't have to be near cat's at all as the sensors are before the cat's, if you have sensors before and after then it would matter but being that there are only pre cat's and pre cat sensors shouldn't matter in the slightest yaris ones I think as long as there 4 wire though it doesn't matter the plu...
