Running a sensor in the exhaust stream without having it powered will shorten it's life as will leaded fuel or installing it too close to a turbo as it is sensitive to heat.

My belief is that a wide band setup is MANDATORY for an engine with a power adder. You might get a custom tune, but no engine's components do not degrade with time or use.

Blow just ONE headgasket or worse and you'll gladly pay the tariff for the protection a wide band setup offers.:hihi:
