Wideband and boost gauge install is easy. Here's what I did for my boost gauge:

I have a dual gauge pod for my full pillar so I tapped into the headlight switch and used the wire that controls the dimmer for power so when you dim the lights in your car, so will the boost gauge. The vac line all you have to do is find a vac source behind the TB and tee into that. Pretty simple.

The wideband you want to just tap into the ignition switch wire for power so it comes on with the key on. Then you just run the sensor to your cat and plug it in the rear o2 sensor hole. Make sure your tuner disables the rear o2 sensor.

And that's it.

And make sure you have the right size belt and ROUTE IT CORRECTLY! This will be a PITA if you don't do it right.

Are you running the 8 or 10psi pulley on the PC? And are you still going to use the stock crank pulley?

It came with the 2.55'' pulley. 10 psi SVT set up. Not sure what he'll produce on a ZeTec w/ a FMIC.

Only if you use a ORP you'll need to disable the rear O2.

You don't need the rear o2. You can use that slot for your wideband sensor instead of having to weld a new bung for it. Here is what Focussport has on their site for that:

Quote:
This option will disable the second O2 sensor on your exhaust system. On a stock Focus, this sensor is responsible for monitoring the health of your catalytic converter. If you are using a hollowed-out cat, an off-road pipe, race header, or anything else that eliminates or nullifies the effects of the catalytic converter, then this option is for you. If you still have a healthy catalytic converter, but you plan on changing that soon, I also recommend this option, as it does not hurt the catalytic converter, nor does it hurt performance. If you use this option, you will not need a so-called "O2 Sensor Emulator", "MIL Eliminator" or anything of the sort. This option keeps the check engine light from coming on due to a problem with the second O2 Sensor.
If you are using the 2.55 pulley you are going to be looking at around 12-15 psi on a regular zetec I think. The 3.2" pulley is 10 psi on a zetec and the 3.4 is 8 psi. If you are going to be running stock internals you may want to tone it down to 10 psi.

As long as you use a CAT the wideband must be installed upstream from the CAT.

So what will happen if it's plugged in the rear o2 sensor slot? Will the readings be different? I had asked Tom this many times when I installed mine and he said it was fine to use that slot so now I'm confused.

If there is a cat before the WBO2 sensor than it will probably read differently than if it was before the cat. You probably don't have a cat if Tom told you'd be ok.
