It's purpose is to be able to tune your car on your own. The OEM 02 sensor will not give you an accurate reading. You will need to install a new bung.

a wideband doesnt replace any o2 sensor unless you setup it up to run closed loop and take the place of the primary o2. But it has to be wired correctly and setup through your engine management.

typically you just add another o2 bung before the cat.

the reason that i need to replace my o2 sensor b4 the cat is that its bad. i was just hoping i could buy the wideband instead of both the wadband and o2.
im ganna run an aem standalone with my turbo set up and i wont be tuning it myself, should i regaurd getting a wideband?? i aways felt like it was nessasary for a good tune. but idk.

Whomever tunes your car should use a wideband. If you don't have one installed when you get tuned, they'll usually use their own.

I personally feel a wideband on a boosted car is a necessity, its a very important gauge that tells ALOT about the condition of a running motor.
