That sensor looks like it is in a bastard of a spot!

Be very careful with the bolts in the back of the turbo, you don't want to snap them. As said spray them with bolt off or wd40 etc and leave that sit for a while. If the bolt feels like it's getting tight as your undoing it, it might pay to do it back up a few turns then start undoing it again so you don't snap it.

undo the sensor at the plug then unscrew it from the dump once you have it off the car if you cant get to it with a spanner while the dumps still on the car.

will give more power yes! and a different noise

those sensors can be a pain to get off, make sure you get the right size spanner onto it as they can be rather tight and the last thing you want to do is to have a spanner slip and stuff the bolt. Also get all new gaskets and personally i used a bit of gasket cement on them to make sure you get a decent seal

Yep that position for the 02 sensor is going to be a bitch. I even dare say you might have a bit of a drama with the wiring to it reaching...

When I did mine I took it to my mechanics work shop as it is much easier to do stand up underneath the car the bolts are an a bsolute bitch to undo and you don't want to snap any

Good luck

Dude, its definately job you can do yourself. I bought my first skyline (95 gtst) a few months ago and i have done everything with the exhaust myself. All my bolts including oxygen sensor werent too bad, some were pretty stiff but you get that. The guys in the post have given you good advice with the wd40, so follow that. Im not the most experienced with cars, and usually stick to just doing oil changes etc. Im lucky that i can always get my old man to help me with my cars, which comes in handy. I would definitely have a go yourself, and if your concerned just try get someone who is handy with the spanners to come round for a few beers!

I have found the skyline to be really easy to work with, and if you get stuck this site is an excellent source to get your answers.

All pretty easy, should be able to punch it out in about 2 hours working on your back with stands, obviously put the o2 sensor in the new pipe out of the car would be borderline impossible in the car. You can get onto 5 out of 6 bolts with a small 3/8th breaker and a 13mm socket (bottom 2 from under the car) I cut down a small 13mm spanner to get to the middle passenger side bolt.

Tell me about it I had to install my exhaust from catback without the hoist I killed my back and arms and took 3 times as long as it would have taken with the hoist

Nah you should be ok once the bolts are out the hard part is done try wrestling an exhaust in by yourself with the car only about 6 inches off the ground that's a bitch

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
