Not ok. I'd be pissed if I was the miata or boxter driver.

Agreed- nothing went wrong. If the MX5 driver is afraid, he probably should find another hobby. Things don't go awry until the being passed isn't predictable- like moving to make way for the fast car.

I appreciate the space available to turbocharge in the attached image. Lots of cool things going on there.

I'm sure it gives an excellent average of whatever the AFR of the atmosphere is and what the AFR of the engine was two seconds ago.

I dont think it would be that bad. Its not pulsating as much as it would be NA.

Ive tuned cars running open downpipes like that and Ive never seen any behavior that would lead me to believe that the AFR readings were off in any way. Not even at idle.

but like, why not put it off the pipes before the turbo? then you'd measure NO atmosphere.

It looks like a 4 wire O2, which would work fine closer to the turbo.

The problem I have with it is how close to the outlet it is...it's going to be metering atmosphere if anything.

There's about 6 feet of piping the sensor could be placed at between the turbo and block that would work much better and meter the exhaust accurately.

uhhhhhhhhhh...to measure the amount of gas to oxygen in the exhaust. Not sure what role you think the turbo has, but it has nothing to do with combustion. I doubt the pressures would damage the sensor, and I doubt the heat is anywhere close to as it would be bolted next to the block, which is the main reason we install aft turbo. The sensor as located now, will give you **** for accuracy, hell when I have the slightest exhaust leak in my setup, even when much further downstream than the sensor, it reports back lean.

You think that somehow atmosphere is going to make it up the pipe? :lol: Ever put your hand at the end of an exhaust pipe while a car is idling?

Again, I refer you to page 7 of this PDF: http://innovatemotorsports.com/suppo...C-1_Manual.pdf
