Default AEM wideband system install

Hey guys, i installed this a few weeks ago and finally got around to post them.





For now I installed the wideband in one of the rear O2 areas, this is ok becuase I'm running an O/R pipe and the cats wont mess with the readings. Very easy to install and i think it looks good on the steering column. What do you guys think?

Hoping to get some better fuel tunes in it after winter. It idles at 14.5-15ish after it warms up a bit. Normal idle values? I know 12.8-13.2 at WOT, but I'm unsure of a good idle, curse values.

Looks good that is a good meter I also installed in a rear o2 hole. 14.7 for idle and partial throttle but a range like you have is perfect.

Thanks for the response. I can't wait for spring, I'm going to get some new times at the track. Only went twice and I didn't know what I was doing so I had bad times... [email protected](before gears, tune, TB). So i'm hoping for a sub 14 run.

Also installed that hurst shifter handle a little while back, great for slamming gears

Tuning my AFR, I have a sniper SF kit so I can adjust my timing and fuel settings. I just needed to know what ratio I had so I can get the optimal ratio for power (12.8-13.2 at WOT) also to tune for cruising so I can get better mpg under normal driving.

what made me get one was I was getting my car dynoed and they have a tail pipe wideband there and they measured it at around 15.5 at WOT which is dangerous for pinging. The guy there was nice enough to let me try a few tunes to get it lower but now Im running rich (12.2). The Pi swap messed with my AFR from the better flowing heads/intake.

Is it possible to use the rear sensor hole on the stock exhaust setup with out throwing codes?
Im wondering because I drilled and welded the bung but not in the + 10 degree from level. Now my AF values are really wacked out, and maybe its because of this.
