    that's an EGT, not a wideband. EGT = a thermometer for the manifold.


    and anyway, 99% of a/f gauges on the market are meant to be used with narrow band circuits.
    if you want a wideband reading-- get a wideband. like, plxdevices.com m300
    best bang for the buck.

    just don't wire it to your radio harness

    Well i would suggest tuning with an actual a/f meter not a guage. The guage is not that accurate for tuning. My two cents. Also AEM makes a wideband unit and wideband guage. They are specifically made to work together.

    yup- running a narrow band a/f guage and a wide band sensor can have odd results. get a complete package, like the plx, the aem ugo, etc etc.. they run about 300 bucks.

    no, i don't have anything for sale. all my stuff is gone.

    EGT is a tool.
    a/f ratio is a tool.

    there's a LOT more to tuning than setting the a/f right.

    deam, if i only had the money when you was selling yours.
    would you recomend the plx?

    so EGT is a good indicator for tuning?

    EGT tells you how hot you're running.

    if you don't know how to use it, its a useless gauge. a good tuner will know it and use it.

    i never heard of Zietronix, so i won't comment. looks ok i guess... i don't know how accurate it is or anything though. i'm not a big fan of all in one units. they usually don't do all of it perfect.
