Air/ Fuel ratio gauge

Postby 88alltracohio » Mon Nov 06, 2006 12:05 am

If I get the digital AutoMeter NV air fuel ratio gauge (not the wideband one,) will I have to get the "2244 Oxygen Sensor Kit"? Or will the gauge work on AT's w/o the oxygen sensor kit?

Thanks,

The gauge will work with any stock O2 sensor but the one that autometer sells (2244) they claim that it is more accurate than stock. :shrug:

I would say if the BOSCH O2 sensor is cheaper than the autometer and you feel like upgrading from stock (although our stock sensor is claimed to be pretty accurate, sturdy and responsive) then get that instead.

Don't waste your money on a narrow band A/F gauge.

You can get a wideband sensor and controller for $200.
http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/inno ... -p-41.html

It doesn't include a display, but it has two programmable outputs that you can setup to drive a lot of different gauges, or even just a simple $3 multimeter. Or, you can display AFR on a laptop.

A narrowband O2 unit is next to useless though. If you can't afford a wideband, buy something else. EGT, Oil pressure, oil temp, etc.

I think the AEM wideband goes for around $200 as well.
