Default Wide band??

I ordered an air/fuel gauge. I heard that it is pretty useless to use it with the stock rear O2 sensor. Can I just get any wide band sensor and hook it up?

your standard a/f gauge is nothing more than a voltmeter in the range of 0-1v. A wideband sensor operates in the 0-5v range, but most wideband controllers have a standard 0-1v output that you can use to run a standard a/f gauge.

Look into the LM-1 from innovate motorsports. Unless you plan on going with a specific EM at some point, then check out their options for W/B. The UTEC with a Tuner is a nice setup with easy to read logs.

The LM-1 has good software and some nice add ons for data logging.

The narrowband AFRs are not totally worthless. I use mine tapped to the rear O2 to double check my wideband results. If the WB sensor goes bad, it's good to know the super lean (for example) reading isn't accurate since the AFR gauge is still reading over rich.

You could use a wideband to narrow band adapter with the A/F gauge so that it is less of a light show...

I was playing with my LM1 today. I really like it and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking into a wideband.

the LM1 is deffinately nice. I use one for all of my road tuning customers. The Zeitronix unit is a also a good, cheaper alternative that works well if you're going to install it to be in the car at all times. The LM1 is a little large for a good permanent install IMO.
