Is your wide band and data logging data matching now?

What sensor does it use? It's kind of nice that my PLX uses a Bosch sensor that I can pick up a block away at the local Autozone for ~$50.

That sucks that that wasn't the problem. You should probably post a log on the link forums someone there can probably help you out.

Its probably my timing and fuel settings. which I REALLY don't know what im getting my self into when it comes to that. I tried to log it and see where I was hitting even the slightest knock, Adjusted it, seemed to work but then I just hit it in a different area. I'm just confused at this point.

Bringing this back to life with another issue im having with my wide band...

So My wideband has been acting weird lately. car starts fine, I let the wideband do its heating cycle before starting the car and when I start driving the car and make a pull the wideband either goes wacky with the numbers and then it goes to E8 mode which means its a bad sensor, or it goes to 22.4 whether im in idle or on the throttle. Pull over turn the car off and restart it and sometimes the heating(HTR)cycle doesn't seem to go away on the wideband until I start driving it again, then it most likely does what it does previously. Since I have it setup in link to simulate the o2 with the wideband so when it goes into E8 mode its like my car doesn't have any o2 signal and make my car run like shit... I've changed my sensor in the past because of this same issue and still doesn't really change anything.

Would I be better off if I just run a standard o2 sensor in the stock location and get my signal normally and have my wideband reading the A/F instead of it doing both simulating and reading numbers? Im just trying to get all of the bugs out before I go get tuned next month.

Any advice would help me out!

Thanks in advanced.

have you checked the wiring? make sure its not a bad connection. i had an AEM that had a weird connection in the back of the gauge and it would short out from time to time. got an innovate and rewired it and haven't had an issue since. also what wideband. sorry i did not read the thread at all this is the first thing i read.

yeah just go through and check all the connections and also check where the wiring goes through the firewall and make sure the grommet is in there and hasn't fallen out or ripped and cut the wires.

How old is the sensor?

FYI, you can typically pick up new sensors at AutoZone for under $50 bucks: click

Well, I checked all of my wires and all seems fine, nothing looks loose or anything like that. Calibrated the sensor and now its acting like normal. Not really sure why it was acting funny, But drove it to work today and its been good so far so we'll see.

Thanks for all help guys.

Yeah she is driving great right now, considering its not tuned on the current setup yet. I'm running about 20-23 psi but my timing I think is very conservative right now. So hopefully that's where my power will come to life. Shooting for over 400hp 450 would be great but we'll see.

I had a similar situation when I installed my Innovate WB. It worked well for about an hour and then just started to read full lean. I checked all the wiring as it was a fresh install and it all checked out. I pulled the sensor and tested it out of the exhaust with a rag soaked in brakeclean and it swept the full range of rich to lean??? I went through the calibration process one more time, re-installed it and it has been fine ever since. I still don't know why it misbehaved.
