Its an Autometer dual pillar, the old one pops off, this one pops back in. Its pretty easy, just sucked installing it in 95℉ in a garage with no air circulating.

$88 from JEGS. Could have gotten a little cheaper but they offer free shipping. I bought the boost gauge from Amazon because I did the prime membership and had free 2 day shipping.

AFR was 10 till 5k rpm's, then went to 11. Car feels stronger now, like my fuel injectors were clogged. Might have gotten dirty gas from the race track. Will keep seeing how it is.

AT WOT shouldn't AFR be more like upper 11s?

I guess after the computer is done learning (battery was disconnected last night installing the gauge) I will record what is happening, see if I can get the tune right. AFR gauge is well worth the money though.

Going to wait a few more days, but so far the bottle of Techron seems to have fixed the misfire issues. It went from 5 or so misfires down to 1 at WOT in boost and I've only gone through 1/4 of a tank. Going to run this tank out and run it through again to make sure I have the fuel injectors cleaned. Car feels a lot better now, but I'm still running 10 AFR till 5k RPM, then goes up to 11 AFR. I e-mailed IPF about what AFR I should be running, but no answer yet.

Your talking about at WOT right?

I don't trust the shops around here, plus my problems came from an intake manifold coming apart. I talked to Andy and he agreed that I'm running rich, I may have a boost leak. I think its on the intercooler connection, but I don't want to take the front bumper off if I don't have to.

For the gauges, the wideband comes with its own sensor, you just have to run a wire from the ignition to the gauge. Both gauges need to have power from the instrument lighting, which I T-tapped from the purple wire on the purple plug under the dash.

I had the problem is too rich, Arno gave me a better tune. but I already had a dyno that is where i saw the air fuel was off the scale rich. dynoed at 345 hp. never went back to see what is got with this new tune. Cleaning the tips once every three weeks verses once every three days. I should have known better.

I spoke with Arno a few weeks back after doing a data log. My afr was 11-12.5. He said it was good. Car runs smooth but haven't had a chance to take it back to the track. This is my 2nd tune since I got my system. Wish there was a way to bridge the gap just a little more with my afr.

I managed to change out the clamp on the intercooler that held the hose from it to the throttle body. The worm gear on that one was stripped, replaced it and the hose is on there tight.

Not going to do any more troubleshooting or racing until I get my intake manifold back, should be getting it next week some time, then I can do some painting.
