Yup. I did a wiretup on this a while back and found it in the archives:
Note in this picture (
http://126.96.36.199/V8Q/pics/RPM-Sensor-Conector(Bottom).jpg) there is a
rouge green wire; this is the extra (chassis) ground that I used on the Bosh
4-wire sensor. I eventually grounded it to the engine block and haven't had
any problems sence. The 2 white heater wires go to the plug called out in my
photo as O2 sensor, and the black sensor wire goes to a single fast-on
(spade) connector with a rubber boot just barely seen south of the 2 white
For me, the O2 sensor was a very easy job, but some people have a bear of a
time breaking the O2 sensor loose if the previous installer didn't use
thermal grease (supplied on all new Bosh O2 sensors).
Here is a shot of the O2 sensor in the X of the exhaust cross pipe:

one that goes to engine ground.
Good luck Torrence,
