Thanks everyone. I'll try to respond to most of the comments.
Looking forward to seeing how it works. One thing: don't be concerned about getting it "too close" to the exhaust. This is actually a good thing in that these are heated UEGO sensors and the quicker they get up to temp, the better they work and the cleaner they stay. Generally, just rear of the collector merge flange is good. It is not unusual to use an individual UEGO sensor in each header tube about 6" from the exhaust port for heavy dyno tweaking, so don't worry.
Keep us posted!
Thanks for the advice. I'm afraid of putting it too close because I think it might heat up too much. You make a good point however, about those who put a different sensor in each header pipe. Oh and btw, my car's name is Sarah. I edited my sig to eliminate the confusion since it wasn't very clear before. I'm Daniel, nice to meet you! lol
I mounted mine in the pipe on the driver's side under the car (the instructions say to mount it at least 18" from the exhaust port since too much heat will destroy the sensor) and ran the wiring up the firewall and then into the car. I wrapped the connector with rubber electrical tape (waterproof). Be sure and weld the bung so the wired end of the sensor points UP about 10 deg to keep moisture out of it.
Thanks. I read all the instructions completely last night. I was just wondering if anyone has done it differently. I'm going to try to keep the sensor on the top half of the pipe to help with the moisture issue. I was just wondering where I was going to put the big connector, but wrapping it with electrical tape sounds good. I think I'll be able to keep it away from the pipe, but if I can't, maybe some heat wrap would work?
Mine's in the collector on an upward angle (moisture control). Wiring should be pretty straight forward, knowing you obviously need to protect it. I'm sure the kit offers instructions on this anyway.
Yeah the only issue is that my shorties barely have a collector. All the pipes meet together and end at the joint. So I would have to put it in the pipes after the header. And I was thinking of putting it like 6 inches away from the end of the headers, just in case it's not good to put it so close to the joint.
be sure to keep us posted on progress and tuning , i've been wanting one
I'll definitely update this thread. I hope to install it soon, but I have a few tests to study for
Makes EFI tuning easy, and I assume it would help greatly with carb tuning - you can dial it in on the money. Probably the best investment you can make if you want to tune for power, economy, whatever - no more guessing or reading plugs/tailpipe. If you're 1 point rich you might be leaving 10% power on the table, as well as losing a lot of mileage.
BTW, if you want to datalog it, I wrote some software for that - it's free (for the 'crippled' version). I never got around to putting in a tach interface (using the sound card - messy), but it will log A/F and times. South Street Performance Products
Yeah I'm really looking for economy, and I suspect I'm too rich, so I should end up with a little power in the process. What could I use the datalog for? Sounds cool. Thanks.
