Few questions for you tom.

First off, I've had my AEM wideband hooked up for a few weeks now. During normal driving, the A/F stays at14.0 - 15.0 when I get on it, WOT, it'll drop down to between 12.0-13.0.

Now from time to time I notice under normal driving, I'll look at it and it'll be at 12.0-13.0 is this just because I'm not tuned yet? It only happens I'd say 80% of the time or at least 80% of the time I'm looking at it and notice.

Another thing, I thought the F2 header for the Duratec had an o2 bung welded after or in the collector, I was wrong. Right now I have the wideband in the middle o2 bung. It's about halfway down the header and only monitors the one cylinder. Would I be better off going with the most downstream o2 spot (still only monitors same one cylinder) or is the middle one okay? Main reason I used the middle one is because of the cold/wet/snowy weather, it was just easier to reach the middle one from the engine bay instead of climbing underneath, I can change it once I get a nice day off if you'd recommend using the most downstream o2, or would I be better off getting a new bung welded in after the collector.

Thanks.


Any updates on when I can expect my tune?

If you bought a tune from me and have not got it PLEASE send me an email with how you paid , when , what it was for and a address , It has been crazy the last month and seems I have missed a few coming in to me and I am sorry about that

What you want to see is mid 14 to low 15 , if you change o2 locations it can loose track of the pulse the ECU is set up to follow for the o2 so be careful moving it around , I would try going back to stock location and see if it corrects it self , I can then change things in the tune to adjust for moving it

Tom

Email sent.

I worded my first post wrong, I meant the A/F is between 14.0 - 15.0 80% of the time and the other 20% it drops down real low under normal driving conditions.

What would be the best location to put the Wideband, Right now it's about 6" away from the head. Is that alright?
