Got Myself a Wide Band 02 Sensor/Gauge

Just ordered an Innovate Wide Band O2 sensor and gauge pod.

I plan on simply using double sided tape for now to mount the gauge pod. I do not want to drill into my dash just yet.

Here is the sensor kit I bought: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004MDT8MW?keywords=innovate%20wide%20band&qid=1458674950&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

Look up Speed of Sound a-pillar pods. They are the only place that makes legit gauge pods for these cars - the column overlay thingy and bezel replacement with gauge openings that are commonly available by our favorite aftermarket retailers, I won't go so far as to say they suck (although I think I just did) but IMO they just don't look right. The ones I've seen in person lack a quality oem fit and look to them.

Those pillar pods, only bummer about them is that company now requires that you send them your pillar trim and then they do the pod install on it. They used to just sell the whole thing but I guess they no longer are able to get the oem trim pieces.

Ill keep those in mind when it comes time to make it more permanent.

We will be moving the sensor and gauge from my car to my dads car.

I got a generic pod for now. I just need to be able to see my AFR when I'm on the nitrous.

FYI...these 125 jets are bad ass.

Sensor came in. I'm going to take it to a shop to get the bung welded in (My dad's welder cannot weld Stainless Steel). I may give them my Flowmasters and have them put them on too. I'm tired of climbing under there and doing exhaust work lol.

Also, my fuel pump is maxed out on my 125 shot. I bought a used Vortech Fuel Pump Booster, shoud be here in a week or so. I should be ready for the track in a few weeks...

Yeah, I will post of a pic. It will be on the Driver's side downpipe probably a few inches downstream of the Narrow Band O2 sensor, pointed at maybe 1 or 2 o'clock. I will test fit it tonight, get the pipes off, drop it off tomorrow night, and hopefully have it by Thursday.

I re-read the instructions for the Innovate Wide Band and it wants me to put the sensor AT LEAST 24 inches from the collector. So, my plans have changed. In the pic you can see where I am now putting the bung. It also says the max Temp of the sensor is 900 F which is probably why they want so far down the pipe. I hope this helps.

900°F.... That's crazy hot. I won't argue with their recommendation on positioning, but dude if your exhaust ever gets that hot you better hope you're wearing flame resistant shoes lol. The manifolds only get up to about half of that temperature, and that's the hottest place on the entire car.

I have seen catalytic converters get in the 1000+ degrees. Do they hold heat more? Thats on a normal car...

Oh, well maybe so. Now that I stop to think about it, I've heard that the cat's don't begin to actually work until they heat up to at least 400° and a normal average operating temp is around 600°. 1000° seems a bit warm but hey I'm no expert, and I'm sure that some are designed different than others and work at different temps.

Here is where the bung is. I literally just picked this up today. Only costed me $55. I shot a few coats of exhaust paint so the bung and weld doesn't rust....
