Thats the only way I know how. you could buy the proper wire from SCT, but you would still have to wire it to your wideband.

First of all, you CAN do it. Don't be intimidated by this project.

If for some reason you decide to not connect your A/F gauge to your data logging software, I believe Tom has you record the A/F at 1000 rpm increments. In other words, run a data log at 1000 rpm, 2000 rpm, 3000 rpm, etc. and write your A/F readings at each of those levels. Tom will tell you how high he wants you to go, and whether he wants a WOT reading as well.
