AFR Gauge Options

Recommended Posts

Im thinking about putting an AFR Gauge in to monitor the mix, don't want to run it lean/rich again after all this work, is there a gauge thats not going to look horrible on the dash?

so far I've only seen huge 2" dials,

m looking for as discreet as possible, any ideas?

You need one with a wideband lambda for a start, ones that run off the original lambda sensors are gash.

You also want one that gives you an actual AFR number, not a load of coloured lights flickering away.

There are a few options, assuming you want something oem looking with amber illumination?

Defi (if you have deep pockets), Innovate or AEM, all do gauges that would be suitable IMO

Zeitronic is a good option......and it can also do egt and monitor other functions too as well as data log

Avoid innovate they are gash sensors burn out frequently on mine & at £60 a go it ain't funny.

NCK make a nice unit that is simple LED display & it uses a widely available Bosch sensor, techedge are also well spoken off

BUT the reality of forced induction is by the time you see a big enough change in AFR reading your mota will already be toast.

Intake temps & EGT are prob as if not more important but again unless linked to your ECU all your going to be doing is picking up the pieces.

I have the intake temp showing through my torque app, wouldnt it be useful to know if its running lean again through a vacuum leak, then i would know something was up as it was running fine even though it was lean and the dash didnt light up

Hi mate, did you manage to install afr gauge? I am thinking to get latest "pro sport"  -around £200 for it. Also where I am supposed to plug it in? We have two pipes for bank 1 and bank 2...

So it's kinda connected to only one of 2 banks right? Btw was it hard to install evo headers? I couldn't find rhd header unless you ready to pay 1k+

I didnt install anything im useless at that stuff, the evo headers are difficult and expensive to do btw, they need custom flanges made to fit the block, sorry i cant be any more help
