P0153 O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response

My Z has been throwing this code off and on for a few months. I'm running long tube headers on my Z with no cats. Threar O2's are use for the fronts and I'm using O2 sims for the rears. The wires got alittle heats soaked but did not touch the headers. Could heat soaked wires be my problem? How can I check if the O2 sensor is good? Any info would help. Thanks, Brandon.

Brandon, exact same problem here. I've lived with the codes for over a year. They don't seem to affect the car's running at all, but are an annoyance to see on the dash. I've tried a few of the "fixes" and have come to the conclusion it's defective O2 sims. You can get new ones, and heat-wrap them, or get them tuned out with a dyno tune. This will eliminate the sensors permenantly. There's no tuners real close to me that can do this,(for all I know) but I'm planning on more mods in the near future, which would neccesitate a retune anyway. So basically, I decided to wait until these were done before seeking a tuner.

Well I did replace the sims and heat wrapped them as well. The code is Bank 2 Sensor 1 meaning the front sensor so it is not the sims. I just didn't want to buy a O2 sensor for $90 plus bucks and have it be the heat soaked wires you know.

If it's any consolation, I've been getting the 154, as well as the 153 for about the same time. I did run it on the dyno once after the header install, and with a Predator tune( the built in one) it ran 378/368 with a very steady AFR of 13-1 from about 4k to redline. Fuel mileage is unaffected, so I'm not too worried about the stupid light. Figured I'd eventually get it professionally tuned.

Hey jjwvette, I wouldn't worry about the codes. These codes don't effect the driving of the car. The horsepower gain of the headers will put a smile on your face. Thanks exSSer I figure the same for me get an LS1 edit.
