    What a nice bunch of toys to install. How did the the new o2 sensor prove you were running rich?

    yep ill get some pics and write up a small how to guide on the pump and fpr install,

    the LC1 is the controller comes with a bosch wideband ego sensor,

    the controller has two programmable outputs,
    one is set to emulate the factory ego, this is now wired into the factory ecu,

    and the other output i have programed to have wideband output, this is wired into my mapecu,
    so now i can monitor my AFRs with the innovate software, or my mapecu software,

    might be time to start tuning...

    after these bits are in i only need to make my 2.5" to 3" downpipes.
    and make a less restrictive front turbo intake pipe

    Have you tried running the wideband at the exhaust tip to see what difference it makes?

    I remember when we tuned my Skyline, we had teh wideband in replacing the stock oxy sensor and it gave a lean reading, so we richened it up till it hit 11.5 - 12's. Car then would hardly run. Ran it back on the dyno with the wideband in the exhaust tip, showed 8 - 9's. Stupid Rich.

    I would be interested to see what your's does.

    not gonna bother. means having to move/change stuff thats already installed/setup in my car.

    im happy that the readings are correct,

    also when using a wideband, it must be installed befor the cat-converter for most acurate results (not that thats an issue on my car)
