The clamp comes set at .32 volts which is really lean.
What would you recommend for the proper voltage?

Each application is different. I have found that the best method is to install the clamp at the furnished voltage (.32 volt) and then test drive. If it bogs rich when the switch is activated, adjust the voltage upward in small increments (.03 volts at a time) until while testing it makes the transition smoothly. In NO case do you want to go above .45 volts.

So I went on the freeway and punched it from 3k rpm to 5k rpm. The transition was smooth. I then went on a local street and punched it from a stand still to 5k and the transition was smooth as well. This was w/o the O2 clamp. (using bipes and powercard - yes I have a supercharger LOL). Will I still benefit from installing an O2 clamp? I'm also planning on changing to emanage blue in the near future to try to get more power.

Thanks

Bruce,

If I had been thinking, I'd have asked you to bring me one of these when you came up the other day to get the rear end.

Any definite results for this on an MSM?

Also, looks like I'll have to miss next weekend's auto-x. I took that job in Maine, so I'll be driving North that day...

The voltage adjustment above is strictly for after you have added an O2 Clamp, not to analyze whether you need one.

Even though it is smooth, there may be an area of "lean tip in". If you can't feel it, the only way you would see it is with a WBO2 logging. The O2 clamp keeps you from running lean in boost while the ECU is till referencing the O2 sensor. You could be running a few pounds of boost at cruise while maintaining a 14.7 AFR if the ECU is still referencing the O2 sensor.

A few MSM's that I am aware of have benefited. Good luck on the new job.

How is this different from the Greddy O2 Sensor adapter made to work with the emanage units?

Like this one.

Apparently it is meant to address the same issue as your O2 clamp does, but I think the Greddy Adapter either maxes/cuts voltage all together and sends no signal to teh ECU, because product description says that on some applications it will cause a check engine light to come on and/or the ECU goes into fail-safe or limp mode. I don't care to take the chance and find out my ECU runs doodoo so I ended up picking up the OG O2 clamp from you man.. haha!


Eagerly awaiting this part. I don't even care to drive the car without it.

Yes. The FM version of this part is a very common "first mod" for MSM owners. The difference: OG's is much more affordable.

I installed this and now my (narrowband) AFR meter isn't getting a signal. I have it connected to the line that runs from the O2 sensor in to the pressure switch or whatever its called. Do I need to run it to the wire that goes right in to the box that came with the kit instead? The white wire?

just a question....

I'm about to install this. I am not sure where people place their o2 clamp box. do most of you splice the wire close to ecu? or somewhere near more close to fire wall? considering you would need vacuum source for your pressure switch. or extend white wire a couple feet?

one more thing, where should pressure switch be placed? inside the cabin or in the engine bay? i remember reading somewhere about having the vacuum line as short as possible. seems impossible to tap into boost gauge host since its super tiny.

Mounting can be done anywhere that it is more easy for you to pick up the electrical connections. A vacuum hose can be run anywhere and a couple of feet of hose will not give you much variation.
