Suggested mounting point for AEM UEGO sensor on ARH headers and exhaust

Without being able to go under the car with these headers installed I can't tell where is the best location to mount this to keep out of the way of other parts. Anyone got a suggestion? One side over another?

I'm sure someone will chime in, I'm just wondering .. where in the car are you going to mount the gauge?

thanks,
Crowley

I bet you'll have to have an exhaust shop weld in a bung off of one of the collectors.

I agree....that would be the most durable and cleanest way to go!

Without having the vehicle right in front of me to measure I am not completely sure, but I am hoping it can be mounted to the left of the wheel and will sit above or below the dashdaq. Since I will more interested in logging than watching, the location is not as important.

solo, disable the bank 2 sensors, and tune to one side, then switch sides to verify AFR.
youll prolly throw cat codes.

will it be 0420 code on this car too?

i always LAUGHED when i got that code. catalyst.

I would like to keep all the factory sensors though, especially since I invested ina high end data logger for tuning.

I am guessing t will go somewhere 90° offset at the same point at the existing ones on the collector pipe.

The AEM UEGO sensor needs to be installed so that the sensor body is at an angle above horizontal relative to the ground. This is to prevent accumulation of condensation on the O2 sensor tip. The sensor has a heating element that burns off the condensation, but if it accumulates excessively it can ruin the sensor.

Keep in mind if you have not used a UEGO before, the gauge is very bright and busy. There is no way to dim the lighting. Also, you must keep the gauge powered if you are going to keep the WBO2 sensor installed in the exhaust. It provides the power to the heating element in the sensor itself. In other vehicles I have installed the gauge in a pod in the glove compartment. That way, if I want to look at it I can, but I keep it shut otherwise. I usually just use the UEGO RS-232 output for AFR logging with a laptop.

HotSS has a good idea if you only need to use the gauge when tuning. If you want to log all of the time, you will need to get a bung for the sensor welded on one side or the other. The spot where the existing front bung is located looks good, 90 degrees out like you said.

So far just an AEM UEGO and the DashDAQ.

Got the DashDAQ for PC and CarDAQ-Plus cable to be able to program.

I may add a 3-axis accelerometer from Phidgets. Trying to find a 10Hz or 20Hz GPS sensor for recording track positions.

like hot SS said, tune one side then the other.

or... another way I was pondering...
might be a little tricky to do, but have the bung installed at the X pipe

Except installing there is after the cats and will not read correctly, I think?
