Default Wideband connected to options plug

Hey guys I recently got my MSPNP2 and an AEM uego wideband.
Today k installed it for the first time and the wideband did not turn on. I connected it to the options plug that comes with the ecu..

I used these pins





This was my screen once I installed the base map




The afr gauge remained like this until i went into tools > calibrate afr and set the wideband to AEM WB 31-4999 or something like that... But i read it should be 14.7 and it was like at 6 or something...

I plan on boosting my 91 1.6L but I'm still N/A as of now

I didn't get a chance to drill the ecu to the floor of the car, would that be a reason why the gauge won't turn on?

I don't think the uego is supposed to get power from that pin on the ecu. I think that is where the ecu gets power. The uego needs a location that can supply a high amp draw. I use the hot lead for the power windows under the center console.

I used the stereo this time and it worked fine only thing is the WB read 13.2 and on mstudio is was 11.40...

Although I'm pretty sure I read somewhere it's supposed to be at 14.7? XD
Also my car was backfiring way more

Don't use stereo for power.

You need to correct for ground offset/ground to ecu/manually enter UEGO controller settings in Tunerstudio.

The car will run at whatever AFR you want it to, when you tune it.

I'm having an issue where if I take off in first it will stall unless I give it a little gas before depressing the clutch.. All I've done is set the timing (14)

You need to set up your wideband properly first. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

Once set up, then tune your car.
