Default Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge

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 ?

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

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?
