I was thinking the same thing. The JDM twinscroll setup puts the o2 sensor there I would assuem due to the isolation of exhaust gasses from the twinscroll headers.

I didn't notice anything different in the mapping as far as O/L C/L fueling goes. You might think that Subaru might have tried CL fueling into boost.

They do that in 07 STIs don't they?

There's a CL enrichment table that seems like it ought to allow staying in closed loop at AFRs well below 14.7, has anyone messed with it yet? For my car it showed up in Merchgod's last set of definitions. (Others may have gotten it sooner, others might not have it.)

The stock sensor, moved to the downpipe is accurate. I tuned both of my 02 WRXs that way. I had an aftermarket wideband, it read comparably to the stock sensor moved post turbo. The aftermarket one broke, I never got another one, no need. On the 02 wrx at least, you can rescale it to read down to 10.5 to 1 if you want to.

Just 3/4 of a second into high loads is all at 14.7:1.

I have that table. I would limit the AFL and AFC corrections first though. You don't want a big AFR swing at high loads.

I cut out your images
Couple questions. First, what is the equation for the regression you did on the data? What is the R value? How did you handle the x intercept? Ideally this would be zero. I don't know how the sensors will react in that area of the graph, but it will have an affect on the regression.

Beats me. I just logged both, made a scatter plot, and used Excel's polynomial fit thing. I played with the poly order until it looked about right. That's 4th-order.

Why do you ask?

I'm an engineer and when I see data plotted without that kind of stuff, it rings bells. Playing around until it looks right doesn't really cut it. I'm just curious about the comparison. Without stuff like the equation and the R (really R^2) value, a comparison like that is pretty useless. You can draw numerous shapes that look right. Without an R^2 value, you have no way of judging how well a given curve fits. The equation is telling for a comparison of how they line up.

The comparison isn't useless, it's just statistically not sound. From eyeballing the graph (as an engineer, you still remember how to eyeball something? ), I would say the stock sensor tends to underreport the AFR by 0.2 to 0.6 units. This is pretty important of course in tuning, but I would think that after having seen that graph, you could just absorb a 0.4 unit offset in your tuning and get about the same level of precision in the tune as with using other sensors.

The problem here is that you assume the aftermarket wideband must be the "true" value simply because it's aftermarket and because it's advertised as being more accurate. You really need to use a completely different instrument (5 gas analyzer) that isn't subjected to the same limitations of the normal wideband design.

FYI I've since been tuning with the factory wideband relocated post turbo. Seems to work well enough, and I will acquiesce on the location issue. I do trust it more when it is post turbo.

Hi there,

I have a JDM blob eye twinscroll. by default the a/f sensor is post turbo at the bellmouth of the downpipe. do i need to recalibrate the sensor voltage table before i use it to tune?

thanks buddy!

I know I'm resurecting an old thread here, I've got a 99RS that I've done a turbo kit on. I bought a Wideband O2 for tuning and a narrowband gauge for long term monitoring. I've been looking for the information on how to hook up the narrowband but cant find which wire off the sensor to splice. There are two white wires and one black one off the front O2 sensor. The rear has an extra grey wire. I just want to know which one sends the voltage signal to the ECU or how I would find that out. Pretty sure its not the black one. Anyone know this??

Why not just leave the wideband in all the time? Mines been going strong for almost 2 years and 45000 miles. A new sensor for it being only 80 bucks if it does fail. It monitors flawlessly and most importantly under boost which your narrowband will not perform as well due to its limited range. My sensor is 3 inches from the turbo outlet on top off the dp with a slight offset from center to avoid the ac lines.

Black wire on the front sensor is the one you want. The whites are the heater. The rear is post cat, you don't want to monitor that.
