Thats interesting. It's good to see stuff like that being homemade rather than just buying name brands.
I have the autometer one. Its uselessstickershop said:Are the LED's pretty stable, or does it doe the back and forth light show like the Autometer one?
Useless unless your car is running abnormally rich or lean...or if your oxygen sensor is toast. That's about all it can tell you.Richrowa said:I have the autometer one. Its uselessstickershop said:Are the LED's pretty stable, or does it doe the back and forth light show like the Autometer one?
were these aftermarket ROMs? my uncles use these guages in their race car set-ups for customers... and from what ive heard, a lean mixture under high performance circumstances means detonation. could it be that these roms were set-up for race applications? or is it that im not reading things rightakirarex said:I have used some older roms that showed they would not go lean in closed loop mode, on the autometer gauge it would only sweep from stoich to full rich. Showing that it was a pretty rich rom.
I think you are right. If it was wide band if would be more useful. I tried to tune but it was never right using the narrow band. Went to the tuners with wideband and dyno, and with my S200 its like a different car, better car. Amazingly smooth, b16, idles fine cold and hot, 33 mpg, and good power. My buddy with a chipped ecu, cannot believe how much better my car runs then his. His farts and bucks when cold and I think runs much to rich generally. Thats the problem with chipping, it was made for someone elses setup, probably not yours.ComposiMo said:Neato.... now hook it up to a wideband sensor, and you'll have somethin nice
Just a neat example... i had a car come in to tune, and the 'lightshow' showed it being rich. When hooked into the Innovate Wideband i have, it was showing 16:1 (this is with it in a bung that was right on the downpipe, not on the tailpipe).... WAAAAAAY too lean. Got it running right with the wideband, and doing 12.5-ish:1 under boost, and it was running 100x better. So just to show, even if your lightshow is showing rich, you may not exactly be right still.
