Shop around for the best prices, as I said previously, in the link provided at the bottom of the original post is where I found it cheapest.
As for the plug, no I did not change it out, it crossed my mind but I haven't found one in quick searches. I cleaned it the best I could with MAF sensor cleaner (all I had on hand) and blew it out a little with a can of compressed air. If I cannot find a new plug, I will be cleaning it out with electronics cleaner once again when I get back under the covers to do some other things.
Thanks man well i just got in from checking things out with the sensor. I cleaned the connector with air and blew out the oil in the socket, cleaned it all nice and dry. I think when i had my cylinder head done some oil might have got in i will recheck in the upcoming weeks if it will get soaked again. Thanks man. Also good job on the diy kind of intimidating.
