  • AFR questions

    Looking of some way to monitor the AFR on the car

    Seen a few gauge " kits " on eBay but unsure of a few things

    1 - do they have to come I. Gauge form or can you get a scan gauge or colour changing led block which would be easier to mount that a 3 gauge

    2 - how do they fit ? See they have a lambda style probe does this requre a tapped hole in the zaust

    3- any links to any good kits ?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm a big fan of the Innovate product range.

    I use the LC-1 wideband with a DB guage. The XD-16 gauge is easier fitted with the LC-1 controller as it simply plugs into the LC-1 loom. The DB gauge needed spliced but its handy anyhow.

    The LC-1 / wideband setup comes with a narrow band output too so you can replace an existing sensor if you want and use the narrow band output to feed a signal to the ECU.

    Otherwise have another bung fitted to your exhaust and add the sensor. Lots of people prefer this method though I have successfully used the narrowband output in the past and not had any issues.

        Just noticed the XD-16 has been replaced by the MTX range.

            God this is all over my head.

            Would I need a new hole in the zaust for these

              You do indeed unless you use the narrow band output from the LC-1 controller and split it into the existing loom on the Astra.

              If your not confident with this method then just get another hole drilled in the exhaust and have the bung welded on and mount the wideband lambda sensor there.

                You don't have to put another hole in the exhaust, the interface for the wide band can provide an additional narrow band signal to feed into the ecu, but the ecu will give o2 sensor heater failure errors without additional messing about so it may be easier.

                  Would the bung come with the kit ? Is it before the cat it needs to go ?

                    Good point about the heater circuit.

                      Before the cat would be ideal but keep it away from the turbo. Just before the cat would be spot on.

                      The link I had included the exhaust bung.

                          Graham Goode supplies them but he is more costly than on the innovate site.

                          Have a look at the dealer list here.
