  • wide band question

    i just got my AEM wide band and the destructions say to mount the bung 36" downstream from the head. do i really have to do that?

    i think it should be at least 18". the closer to the head, the quicker the sensor dies. although you might be better off following the instructions... im sure AEM did plenty of testing to come up with that number.

      if you are running race gas i would keep it pretty far away. If on pump you will be alright to run it a little closer.

          because i already have a bung welded in right where two downpipes come together.

          i'll just do it at 36", i'm surprised it even works that far away.

            i think that aem would know where the sensor work the best
            if its that close to the turbos it will probably burn out early

              you need to keep it as far away from heat as possible, because it already has a heater in it to keep it the exact temp it needs.

                you can put it in the muffler and it will read the same. as long as you don't have any exhaust leaks.

                they are self heated. they last a lot longer when placed farther away.

                  When WOT and high rpm, you are talking about a delay of about .1seconds, if even that MUCH, between right after the turbos and 36inches down steam.

                    cool, didnt kknow that about the heater.

                    what type of readings should i be getting with the stock fuel system while cruising? cuz it's reading like 15.3:1 most of the time. im wondering if i have some exhaust leak that's causing that

                          cruise=no boost, right?
                          therefore 15.3:1=ok ,right?

                              yep 15-16 is ok n/a....you will probably see 10's under WOT because of the rich ass stock tune.
