I'm glad I drive a V6 and have no intentions of going to the performance arena. This **** was tense!

Good luck with everything.

Being a computer guy, I would run the car with a stock tune, then back with your tune again and see what the A/F does. People mentioned leaks, sounds possible as fords are ALWAYS bad for it.

Good luck, and if your TQ stays that high after the new tune then DAMN thats BAD ***! Almost 5.4 power.

I wouldnt use it as an accurate reading. You need something that has its own o2 sensor.

Widebands are not cheap they usually range from 200-400 bucks.

I'm just not willing to spend $400 for a gauge at this point.. I think if FI or Nitrous comes into play I will spring for it, but if spending that much money is the only choice at this point I'll just have to say no..

That's $400 + another gauge of some kind + $120 for a gauge pod... $600+ for a damn A/F readout.

This looks like it may be a good deal, what do you think?

That's a great deal and a very popular gauge kit.

Interesting,, I've heard people say you can use these to help maintain best MPG on the highway by finding the best A/F ratio at cruise.

Where exactly do you put an A/F gauge? In place of an 02 sensor?

The gauge should go in the cabin somewhere where you can see it. The sensor should go into a new bung welded into your X/H pipe BEFORE the cats. Make sure to read all the installation instructions before picking a spot for the sensor. There are some considerations to be made.

The display... I'd put somewhere like steering column or A pillar. The controller tends to be kinda bulky and can limit where you can put the gauge.

EDIT: AFR has only a part of the mileage and it's a small part. Engine load (amount of air coming in) is more important. Keep the engine under as much vacuum as possible and you'll have it under the least load possible, so you'll get the best average mileage. Look up hypermiling for more information.

Glad you got some things figured out. The tq. was seeming a bit high considering I have 340rwtq running at 5lbs of boost.

So this would be a good setup and get me the information that I need, correct? I depend pretty heavily on your opinion especially when it comes to stuff like this because you tend to have the most experience in this dept. Thanks again bud.

BTW: My pypes Cats have bungs in them already that have just been plugged with bolts, is that going to be a good place to put it or will it probably have to be further away from the cats?

They're on eBay for $183 shipped too...

Probably go ahead and pick one up tonight.. Now the only problem is deciding on where/how to put it... I really don't like the steering wheel pod.. I think I'm going to have to get a pillar pod and some other gauge..

Hey Evan, like R3d said on the installation, make sure that you position the sensor in the pipe where no moisture will collect on it and damage the sensor. 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock are good spots. Make sure that the bung is welded in completely with no leaks and everything will be fine. Great numbers by the way, Congrats!

Thanks bud, I've got a couple of weekends worth of work comin' up..

I'm going to get the AEM wideband gauge, but what other gauge should I get at this point?

If a fuel pressure gauge is necessary, how does this setup look? I like the fact that it is simple and doesn't have a bunch of crap on it..

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CYB-A211E351Y/

Description is kind of vague, but I don't think it would need anything else to be functional would it?

Did I miss it somewhere or did you get a new tune Evan? Interested in seeing what the correct new torque will be..

Nope, you haven't missed anything yet.. It will be getting a tune in the next month or so hopefully. It's been put off at the moment due to the fact that the transmission went out in my Mountaineer and it's going to cost $2k to get it rebuilt...

I'll be running a 100 hit of Nitrous and I'll get a normal 93 tune at the same time.

Default NEW TRUE NUMBERS!

Took the car to C&C Performance for some N/A and Nitrous pulls today!

I am needless to say very happy with the results, especially considering how hot & humid it was @ 96*+.

We tried a couple of different variations with the pills, but ultimately ended up sticking with the Dynotune 100 Shot because it seemed to give the best overall performance with regards to the Hp/Tq numbers.

Best Overall N/A Pass:

N/A shows a pickup of 15 Hp/7 Tq with the headers/catback alone.

Best Overall Nitrous Passes:

Aaannnddd, of course I couldn't leave it without a video. Please excuse the quality:
