Interested in the A/F gauge. Is it illuminated (aside from the LED)?

Nope, no extra illumination besides the LED. Pretty sure it changes color for lean, stoich, rich though so you can still tell the difference at night. If you want it, paypal to the aforementioned email in the first post.

each LED = .05v

the default it looks for is 18:1 - 10:1

so when reading off a NB gauge:




assuming you are using a WB gauge to output a signal to it, you can output whatever scale you want. But lets assume you outputted a 0-1v output using a 18:1-9:1 scale.

then you'd use the following to read the gauge:





I use the same gauge but a different scale, but I know I'm at Stoich when the LED is above the S is lit, and i'm at 12:1 when the LED above R is lit.

Where can I get another gauge around this price? All of the A/F gauges I have seen are several hundred dollars. Is this a different version? Wish I would have seen this sooner...

see my post above, there is a difference between a narrowband gauge, and an all out wideband solution.

You can get gauges like this cheap pretty commonly. They're narrowband gauges. The ones you're seeing for a couple hundred are wideband controllers with a guage, totally different setup.
You need to spend the money and get a wideband controller, then you can save money by buying a narrowband gauge.

Nester is selling AEM wideband UEGOs for $245, that is a kickass price for that unit, i have it in my miata and recommend it.

ok, newb question. What is the difference? I know the difference between a narrowband and wideband, but how does this impact gauge performance? I assume the wideband is more accurate. Any other differences that justify the extra $200?

It's not just a difference in gauges. Narrowbands just use a narrowband sensor while widebands use a wideband sensor with a controller that has the ability to output to a gauge and EMS.

if I already have a wideband O2 sensor that hooks up to my Hydra, is it just as simple as a splice to go to a gauge?

Pretty sure the hydra requires a special gauge, though i have no experience with them. Your manual should tell you though.
