Wouldn't it be a lot easier to just replace all of the wiring between the ECU and the sensor first?

If it fixes the problem, then at least you know it's not a duff connection inside the ECU.

So, to recap: You have replaced the ECU, the Lambda Sensor, and the wiring between the two, but a diagnostic readout still says "Lambda Sensor Fault".

A few years ago, I had a similar problem on a car I was working on. After the 3rd brand-new Lambda Sensor, I found that the dealer had supplied the wrong one each time - correct part number, same visual appearance and connector, different output voltage range.

I only discovered this after repairing a duff connector on the original.

Good time to do any additional mods while you have it down to tubing.
If this does not work, what's your Plan ?

Did you measure the resistance with an ohm meter once you did your soldering to make sure you had a good connection?
Cold solder joint could act just like a resister.

This is why I test and don't just throw parts at them and see what sticks.
