    i just installed my apex turbo timer and evidently it can read out the a/f and o2 readings from the ecu.
    I was reading about the plx m300 because I need to buy a wideband...could I possibly buy like the bosch sensor and rig it up without actually buying the m300 so that i'm getting wideband readings?

    Not likely. The PLX M300 is looking for a certian range of voltages from the Bosch sensor, and reads a number based on that voltage. Your Apex! turbo timer is reading the voltage that your factory sensor is sending, which is an entierly different range of voltages.

    the a/f memter on the apex is a narrow band circuit.

    get the plx.
