ZXthrizzle05 I did that with my wire for my subs. the trick here now is to get the correct wire spliced into the wideband channel wire. im having a little trouble getting the numbers to match the computer to my gage. there off by just a hair

Routed the wire through the fender and by the door seal theres a grommet there that I poked a hole in it to get it into the cabin.

Oh okay, i understand now. i got a obx header, 2'25inch catback, k&n cai, and your tune.

Someone should do a little write up on if you add certin mods things you'll need. This is kind of sucks esspecially when i went out and spent 1500$ on upgades in 2 months. kinda out out of funding for the next little while. :(

I could be wrong but with the 2 sensor deletes with the header, wasnt one a a/f?
