Okay, I've had a bit of a poke around but I cant see any loose connector that the Sensor may go into. There also doesn't appear to be any free connectors on the ECU that would enable me to plug anything in either (although I haven't been able to get close enough to be 100%).

When I bought this car, it came with an Apexi SAFC-II (which I've never used), I don't suppose its installation would alter anything to with the the connection of the O2 Sensor would it? I though it just interfaced with the MAF sensors.

only reason to disconnect the o2 is if your runing a stand alone that does not require o2. SAFC-II would not effect the 02 sensor as it is a piggyback and the car still runs the stock computer. Does the car run fine? why were you looking to replace it in the first place?

Thats what I figured.

My reason for replacing it (aside from the persistent CEL) is that the car seems to be accelerating "unevenly". It used to feel a bit like a rubber band had been released when it was accelerating from first up to say high 2nd or 3rd...nice and even... but now it feels a like its not applying power evenly.

I have just replaced the clutch, output shaft and transfer case, and my very first thought was "shit, the clutch is slipping again" but it feels different to clutch slippage...mostly because theres no inconsistent revving that I can detect. It just feels like its losing power, for a few microseconds at a time, during the acceleration process. Plus Ive done about 800kms (of fairly careful driving) on the new clutch now, so it shouldn't be any "bedding in" issues.
