a couple more questions. I understand there is a professional version and standard. basically the professional ties the a/f into the actual program. but from my understanding you can tune the same even if the a/f gauge is seperate. basically there is no difference between the pro and standard versions? each of them can do the same things? edit all the same parameters?
also i don't want to sound dumb but installing a wideband is as simple as plugging the 02 sensor you get with it in and thats essentially it? any wires to splice or is it all plug and play/straight forward.
I appreciate the help.
There are two main differences between the pro and standard. 1st being that you can datalog with the pro and not have a laptop hooked up. 2nd being that there are 5v inputs on the pro that would allow for additional gauges to feed a signal into the scanner part. (wide band, egt, fuel pressure. Literally any gauge with a 5v output.) In my opinion, it is worth the extra money to have the pro version. As far as the software, it is the same.
As for the wideband, depending on which brand you get, they are pretty simple to install. The exhaust downpipe needs to have an extra 02 bung welded in. I think the most common spot is about 6 inches from the collector. Then it is just a matter of running the positive wire to an acc source and then running a ground, feeding the signal wires through the firewall and routing them so that they do not get too close to the exhaust, then figuring out where you want to mount the gauge. It sounds like a lot, but it really only takes about 30 minutes. As for splicing, I used the little blue wire bridge clips. It makes it pretty clean and you don't have to cut any wires.
