Default Help with Autronic Wideband O2 (Shiv)

Shiv sent me his Autronic Wideband O2 analyzer to do some testing/tuning, but there's no instruction manual. On the control unit, it says to install the sensor, let it warm up for ten minutes until "Air" is displayed, then hit the right two buttons to set it...

It won't display "Air" - It first read "cold o2 sensor", now after it's warmed up it displays "2.50"

Can anyone with experience with one of these give me a few quick pointers to get up and running?

Thanks,
Austin

I should call him? You mean like on the telephone? I could try the telephone I guess... The smoke signals I've been using to communicate with him just don't seem to be working anymore...

Of course I've tried to call him - I've tried both shop numbers and his cell number...

Wow! That's exactly what Jimmy00000 said to call you

At any rate, Shiv called, so everything is good.

Hey Austin, did you guys find anything out? I took out my unichip and now don't throw misfire codes or have a constant CEL. If you want I can come over and you can check my car as well.

I talked to Joel and he said Shiv was going to call me but it has been almost a week now.

p@ - The unichips definitely lean things out. A/F ratios were much closer to stoic/less rich throughout the entire rpm range... so shiv thinks maybe it's the ecu pulling timing, maybe due to some kinda crap gas we get up here... recommends trying some race gas to allow the ecu to advance as much as it cares to... If that makes the car feel faster, then that's our problem.

I think I'll still pursue the faulty knock sensor on the grassy knoll conspiracy theory... although I have been fortunate enough not to receive a CEL... yet

putting a hard nylon washer under my knock sensor today.

So does that mean we would have to use race gas all the time or just fill up once and that should take care of it?

And when you say lean things out. Isn't that bad? The problem I have is when under light throttle (less than 50%) and full boost my EGT's shoot way up. I have got them up to 1600 but let off to cool them down. So wouldn't we want more gas to cool them down?

Jimmy- Why bother having a knocklink if you are taking away from the "better to be safe than sorry" I'd rather know It's giving me premature warning than, to find out too late that something isn't right..

I back off any time i see Lights, I guess i am just different.

I'm certainly not considering using that hard nylon washer under the stock knock sensor as a permanent solution... just using it to determine whether it's a faulty (oversensitive) knock sensor issue or not.

If I had a real knocklink, I'd be all set

I don't recommend putting a washer under the knock sensor. Just dump in a few gallons of octane booster to see if the car gets quicker. I suspect it won't judging by the fact you don't feel obvious knock sensor activity (it's pretty noticeable).
