Luk is the only one that makes them as far as I know. If you buy one in a Sachs box it will have Luk stamped on it. Rockauto sells one labelled Brute Power or something like that, probably a Luk too.

1130 is O2 sensor on that bank out of range on idle. Could be something on that bank causing a rich/lean condition, like a leaky injector or intake air leaks. I would get it properly diagnosed.
