AEM AFR wideband gauge

So i purchased this AEM gauge and just wanted to get some feedback on how accurate it is. also i heard it's a PITA to install, but lets hope not. any thoughts on the gauge are welcome. thanks!

Re: AEM AFR wideband gauge

If I'd gone F/I, I'd probably be using a different one, but I'm using it on my NA build, and my best friend is using it on his 490whp Integra and it tells us exactly what we need to know when we need to know it, so it seems like a pretty decent one.

Re: AEM AFR wideband gauge

I'm using the AEM UEGO, Is that what you got? If I went F/I, I've heard good things about Innovate, so I'd go with one of theirs that has datalogging capabilities.

This is something I came across when I was researching it;

Re: AEM AFR wideband gauge

ive only ran aem widebands they work well and they don't need an open air calibration
from friends and some cars i've tuned the Innovate Lc-1 is a bit of a pain in the ass it needs to be calibrated and comes with no gauge if you want to watch it while driving.

the only thing I notice on the AEM units is a very slight delay but this could be related to how far downstream the O2 sensor is placed

Agreed. I've had the Innovate LC-1 for about 6 years now (3yrs on turbo lude, 3yrs on STi), the gauge isn't included, needs to be free air calibrated about once a year, and I think I'm on my 3rd O2 sensor (@ around ~$80 a pop )

This link is the very reason I got the AEM UEGO. Best bang for buck, has hassle free operation, accurate enough, good response time, can send out a narrow band signal and can be used for data logging (serial port). Have tried the data logging but it's somewhat useless without rpm or some other engine parameter to interpret the data. Best I could do was put the data logging wire onto a switch, then flick it on when you want to start recording.

Been ~2years, still works accurately and is very handy to keep an eye on your tune!

Re: AEM AFR wideband gauge

so i installed the AEM UEGO gauge today. i wish someone would do a write up because i drilled an unnecessary hole FML. other than that the install was a cake walk. i had my muffler shop install a bung and just screwed the O2 sensor in. i dont know where to put my add-a-curcuit fuse. currently i have it plugged into my PW driver side. anyone know a better place? also whats a normal A/F ratio in the preludes?

Depends on what gear your in, speed, throttle position, warm/cold engine, ambient air temp, among other factors.
