    Wideband Air/fuel vs. regular?

    I plan on buying 2 guages, an air to fuel and fuel pressure, I was pricing out the air to fuel and the regular one is like 60 bucks but the wide band is close to 300!!

    I dont plan on tuning off of it, is it still worth the extra 240 bucks for the wide band? Im just getting it to keep an eye on the mixture, ive heard its a good idea to have one w/ a nitrous system.

    couple of things here. The one you're seeing for $60 is just a gauge or one that runs off the narrowband sensors, the one for 300 is the kit and comes with the actual wideband sensor. If you're spraying it's extremely important to keep an eye on your AFR. You definitely want the wideband kit and not one that runs off the narrowbands. The narrowband sensors just aren't very accurate at those AFR's. They're meant to run around stoich.

    that $60 Air-fuel indicator that reads an O2 is junk. It is a pointless device.
