Matt, you will be amazed at how much better your car will run and perform (not to mention better fuel economy) when you get your sensors installed. I thought I had a new engine in my car after I did it!

Any anti-seize with Silicone will ruin those new sensors for sure.

The anti-seize applied by sensor manufacturer is not Silicone based. If you decied to apply more, make sure you get the same. Some will even say "Oxygen Sensor Safe" on the packaging.
