My TT GTS had a loose ball bearing and once in awhile it would let oil seep into the intake system, creating white smoke and occasissionally cause som missfire of the spark plugs at start up. 

I Spokane I drove about 6 miles down the road to clear the system out and get the engine to stop smoking.  Oil in the intake lowers the effective octane rating of the fuel and can cause detonation so I drove around Spokane gently until the smoke was gone.  Another side effect of burning oil and a rich mixture as well as running race gas is that damage and deposits cause the oxygen sensors get plugged and can't get proper readings.  In the case of an AEM PCM these are monitored to adjust and control the air/fuel mixture.  When my a/f guage started giving intermitten readings it was time to change out the wideband sensors in my TT GTS.

I went to an O'Riley's Auto parts store.  "Would those be the 1.4 or the 1.9 sensors?" I was asked.  I asked, "What's the difference?"  The answer was, "I don't know."  Pictures looked the same so ...  I didn't get any.

I tried another couple parts stores and got the same info, and questiion.  Mopac (racing) Auto Supply also has the same questions.

Here's the correct  part.  AEM electronic Wideband Uego sensor   30 - 2063    expensive and usually over $100
