    Default o2 sensors

    ok so i was entertaining the idea of going to fuel injection but i can't find any hard info of what exaust temp you need to run an o2, im running exaust logs, do they cool the exaust temp to far to run? can you run a air fuel ratio guage or is it to cool to run them either.

    most wideband air fuel meters use a heated element o2 sensor, there's a 12volt lil heater element inside them that heats up when they 1st turn on so that the sensor part of it starts working faster i wouldn't sweat egt's if you're gonna use a wideband,but too high a egt and the wideband will stop working period.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    1.) O2 sensors are not required for EFI.

    2.)Since your logs and risers are water-jacketed, you will have difficulty installing O2 sensors in them.

    3.)If you were planning to install them after the risers, you can't do that. Water is mixed with the exhaust at this point and that will kill the sensors.

    It's true that an O2 sensor is not required to run EFI.
    You can run open loop right off the maps.

    However getting the maps right in the first place WILL require an O2 sensor.
    It will be very difficult if not impossible to get EFI tuned right without an O2 sensor.

    The best setup by far is running closed loop with the O2 sensor constantly correcting the A/F mixture to match the target A/F table.
    It is a reliable and proven setup in millions of passenger cars every day.

    I know several guys who installed an O2 sensor in their water jacketed exhaust and run closed loop EFI. Just make sure it's well ahead of where the water is dumping in. It works fine.

    You could put a spacer between the riser and the log and install your sensor at that point

    The side plugs on the risers go into the water jacket.

    He might want to post a picture of where he is planning on putting this thing. I too thought that the plug he was talking about was in the water jacket.

    What about tuning a carb w/ a wideband O2 hooked up
    with the water shutoff & then removing the sensor, plugging
    the hole & resume the water injection? How much would this
    change the tune? Otherwise, I didn't think any fuel injection
    would work w/ water injection running across the sensor?

    O 2 sensor has to be up stream, in the exhaust flow. Water gets mixed on the down side of the riser. A 2-4" spacer can be fabricated for an O 2 postion, between the log and riser.
