Interesting. Thanks for the post.

I wonder if it wouldn't correct the frequent surging idle I get. The dealers can't diagnose it and there are no codes kicked up as a result, but agree that they can feel it while sitting in the cabin and can hear the exhaust burbling on the little miss-like variations.

I think it just might fix that. Buy two sensors and throw them in.
