    Here I go again............

    You know, it's never ever ever done is it!!

    So in an effort to make it easier to get the most accurate tune with my new Pro Systems carb and wanting the maximum out of it from idle to being on the road driving, I got the ultimate tuning tool.

    A wideband O2 sensor from Innovate Motorsports http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/ It comes with a Bosch sensor, the gauge with black and silver changeable bezels and black and white changeable gauge faces, 1" bung , and 6 ft. of sensor cable.

    I bought new collectors from Hooker with the collector rings welded to the reducer - Hooker part# 11040, had a local muffler shop weld the bung on the the drivers side collector, and shot them with VHT's Flame Proof header paint.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I installed the collectors, drilled a hole in the side of the shifter hump, ran the sensor cable through a double grommet - under the carpet to the front of the console.

    According to the instructions - I had the bung welded on between the 10 & 2 o'clock postion (per instructions), I opted for the 2 o'clock position so that the sensor would lean in towards the trans for better cable routing.

    I covered the face of the console with real Carbon Fiber vaneer ( http://www.dragonplate.com/ecart/categories.asp?cID=77 ) in a matte finish and installed the Gauge. I saved the other side of the console face for a phone/MP3 player mount.

    This is what the gauge shows until the sensor heats up to temp and starts reading the air/fuel mixture.

    That's pretty cool.

    Reading through your description, I kept having visions of Beevus and Butthead. "A-hehahehaheha, he said Bung!"

    Very nice install Scott.....did you get the pocket logger that goes with that too? Curious to see some data that it collects.

    The Logger is an additional plug-in for $99. I'm not into logging yet, but that would be the next logical step. The gauge/sensor comes with a program to capture info on a laptop. Not sure if it reads just live info or if it can be saved (logged) as it is read. I need to make a call to Innovate Motorsports to ask them.
