    Default Air/fuel guage-O2 recommendations?

    Sending my exhaust to have the bung welded in tomorrow. I wanted to mount a permanent guage in the boat, but I can't find one that matches my white Livorsi guages. Soo......sounds like the portable one might work

    I read the other O2 thread, and it sounds like the innovate motorsports one is the best portable one.

    Any hot tips, or recommendations before I whip it out?(the credit card)

    What do your in-dash gauges look like? White face, but what color bezel? What diameter gauges?

    keith, how well do those intergrate with other brand 3 wire o2 sensors? do you have to run their brand o2, or will it work with others?

    Not sure how many wires are on the Autometer unit. The Dynojet Wideband Commander uses a 5 wire Bosch lambda wideband sensor.

    I would agree that the Innovate is probably your best choice. In their kit, there are different color faces for the gauge. There are a bunch of new and used units on Ebay usually.

    guess i better stick with my a/f gauge then, it uses the cheaper o2, not as effective as wideband but its good indicator of what's goin on, easy to tune a carb by. thanx for the info!

    Just remember that the 3-wire sensors are narrow-band and very quickly lose accuracy as you move away from stoich in either direction. So, if you're trying to tune a forced induction setup at 11.7:1 for example, it won't be nearly as accurate as a wideband in the same application.

    yeah, i had to replace 1 last season when i got realllllly lean. price wasn't bad, 42 bucks for a new sensor. i've got bungs in each header but only run 1 full time, when i tune, i stick the other in and just switch connections to take a look at the other bank.

    Thumbs up

    The autometer setup comes with the standard 5-wire Bosch wideband sensor. The gauge has all the heater controls built into it, so it's a stand-alone wideband setup. It has scaleable outputs that can be used to connect to either a data logger, or a wideband input to an ECM for closed loop control. There are 3 different styles that have white faces and would look nice with the white Gaffrigs or whatever. I haven't installed/tested mine yet, so I can't comment on how well it works.

    Sorry, Theyre IMCO powerflows with the water jacketed gattlin mufflers through the transom. When I was taking it apart, it seemed like it would be better to put the sensor in the riser, moving it closer to the higher heat, but I already sent the pipe off to Imco.

    Now I just have to figure out which set up to buy. The Autometer one is pretty nice, but I'm concerned about accuracy. It has no calibration feature like some of the others. I am going to call Autometer today and get some more info.

    The Dynojet is out for me because of its inacuracy in that comparason.

    Here's a pic of the exhaust
