I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good air/fuel ratio gauge for my '02 Z28, I was also wondering if anyone could give me some info as to how it's installed? Thanks

Autometer mmakes good quality gauges. They are a bit pricey though

Are you looking for the A/F light show gauge or a wide band o2 gauge ?

Most of the time they do but i would ask whoever you buy it from to be sure

isn't there one that just tells you the numbers? like how many parts of fuel there is to o2?

I think it's a wide band 02 gauge

You want a wide band. I have the AEM wide band, you drill in to the exhaust and weld in a bung, run the wires from the wide band o2 sensor to the gauge and the run a power source to the gauge. Aem sent instructions with the gauge also.

Only have a 2 gauge pillar, boost and OBD2 scan gauge. Wasn't spending money on a 3 gauge pillar. That mount was free :cool:

AEM has been kinda lacking in quality lately. The Innovate Wideband is probably the top dog in AFR gauges right now. can be found for around 150-160 if you search.

It said it's 210 for the kit, I might invest in it after I do some more looking around. So I can basically screw this thing into my ORY some how and get my reading from there? I plan on using TSP SS headers that have the fittings for the o2 sensors to thread into. What do you guys think?
