Does anyone recommend that I don't buy OEM 02 sensors? Considering the OEM goes bad after 80-100k should I give a discount 02 sensor a shot? OR should I stick with the OEM? Thanks for your help!

Nice!!!

I did this to mine and didn't put in nearly as much effort. Needless to say your result is much better than mine. I think I might owe it to myself to redo them :^)
