    umm ok, how about this. it can act as a narrowband as well as a wideband. you can replace one or both o2s with a wideband and run it/them through a data logger to view both readings.

    and what did i say?......... its shows you accurate reading, wideband, narrowband, you just said all it does is shows you the readings

    ok to explain myself better, i know that it acts as an o2, i know you use it as a setting for a car, i think the thread starter knows taht as well. i believe he was asking if it does anything othr then that. which i replied with a no
