    i ordered my wideband o2 today from lsxtune.com so that will help too!
    RAF table or do you mean MAF table?
    raf=running air flow or base airflow. You should do an idle log from a cold start all the way up to temp.
    histogram here

    use that histogram and just copy paste the results to your raf table.

    What wideband controller are you using? I see where you bought a sensor.

    well, just to give an update. I think most of my problems came from #6 plug wire being off lol.
    now after I hooled it back up the car runs great with the changes everyone suggested and I can get the small adjustments tuned in.
    .....its amazing how being down 1 cylinder can throw off the whole process lol guess it was off ever since I did the heads and cam swap
    (here is where I wanted to kick myself in the butt) lol

    nope, you have to have a controller such as an lc-1 or lm-1. Not just the sensor.

    ahw damn. how do the controllers work, what do they do?
    I was going to hookup the wide band to the rear o2 wiring, then tap into its output for reading it.....so I guess I was wrong, and can't do that?

    No, that sensor needs a controller. I can get you refunded in the AM or you can use the credit against the purchase of a setup such as one of these: http://www.lsxtune.com/shop/index.php/cPath/103_107

    I like the AFX quite a bit.

    hey thanks Frost, but that's ok, I'll still take it.
    one of my friends has his all setup, I'll save up for the controller, but till then I'll see if I can borrow his

    yep.....hold tight on ordering one. I'm looking to buy one also and stop swapping my lm1 around. Maybe we can get a group buy going somewhere and get a discount. How long before you'd be ready to buy one? I'm in no hurry really but would like to get my put in by spring time. The lm1 works great but I've found that it's in my car pretty much all the time so why not just do a permanent install and be done with it.

    hopefully this weekend or beginning of next week I'll have time to do a lot of tuning. I'm not buying one just yet, I'm going to use one of my friends lc-1...... but I could use and hard wire them in two cars, and know some others that might go in on a group too

    the LC1 does not like being moved around; it's grounding is hopelessly sensitive...
