    After I right clicked on them and opened in another window I could enlarge them enough to see what was what. Thanks.

    under the category of things that make you go HUMMMMM...

    I pop the car up on jackstands, so I can measure and mark where the wideband needs to go, and guess what!! there's already a wideband in there!!!

    Track the wire up, and it's run through the transmission column, and just CUT right past the shifter. hummm, Well I'll go ahead and put the new lambda sensor in, but I have a spare now, assuming it's still good. it's typically not good to run them unpowered, but it don't have a lot of hours on it.

    Are you going to run the wide band gauge all the time? If so make a heat sink for under the sender unit. the arf may be hard to read down where you are mounting it, I have a hard time looking at mine on the steering column.

    Took my first test ride yesterday, while doing some auto-tuning. Didn't have a huge issue watching it, but I was taking it easy. hopefully I shouldn't have to watch it all that much once I'm done tuning.

    I didn't notice anything getting too warm in my 30 minute drive.

    You also using the spartan 2?

    just quick update, pimp is fully installed, Still sitting in the passenger side floor.. but it's ready to mount and seal up...

    I had a short 30 min tuning session with it yesterday...it runs pretty well. There are definitely some areas that still need tuning, but IT WONT STOP RAINING!!!! it's rained 10 of the last 14 days.

    Anyway-- more pimp install updates coming soon,

    You are correct once its tuned you won't think to look at it at all. Stinger said to get one without the gauge and now I see why.

    so here's a hint for all you guys trying to tune ANYTHING...
    I've never run this engine with more than 10 psi, and even then, not hard, because the tune wasn't so good.

    started adding boost to my test-drives... now, it's pig rich... still working that out, but suddenly start missing.

    did a data-log, everything looks good from the electronics end. I put brand new plug wires on it a few months ago, so I know those are good. Pull the plugs to check the gap, and it's got AGSF32C's gaped at .35

    off to the parts store...

    I guess AGSF32C is the new plug... swapped them out anyway, and re-gaped.

    From what I found, the AGSFxxx is perfectly compatible with our original AWSFxxx plugs, the only difference being a fully threaded body compared to a half threaded body. Apparently you can swap in the AGSF for an AWSF, but not the other way around due to the plug hole design/intention to have a fully threaded body. Good info to know in a pinch in any case.

    The AWSF is discontinued, or so they told me...

    They may be, can't seem to find any indication that they really are. If the AGSF can replace the AWSF, but not the other way around, it would make sense that the AGSF now supersedes the former AWSF.
