    Seems each generation has a unique connector type. (this sounds very problematic if I need extensions for my long tube headers.)

    Car in NV and I'm in PA and would like to have parts mail ordered and waiting for me when I show up. I was hoping to order from a dealer that gives discount rather that go to the local Dodge dealer.

    Is there any chance I could get the wrong connectors which would be a PITA to return and reorder once I get there?

    Decided to get the OE manu aftermarket ones from RA for $27 as compared to $120 from Woodhouse. NOTE: Some Dodge dealerships will toss you big discount on a whim. At Lilith in Reno, NV I joked about the $28 oil filter and she wrote me up for $20 or $22 (don't remember.)

    Turns out I also uncovered a potential problem with the car:
    the RHS O2 leads were spliced with a 24" extension. I bit the inside of my lip and clipped the connector off the harness and did a precision 36" splice. This allowed me to route the wires away from physical and head exposure. But still has idle hang at altitude. Stopping and starting engine stops it most of the time. (probably a BARO issues???)

    At Woodhouse you are getting a top quality OE , I would bet the farm that the 27 dollar O2 is not the same as the 120 dollar part from woodhouse, before you wast money on the BARO first try cleaning the air idle control valve and port.
