Slkfucusdvr What will happen if you hook up your analog 1 and analog 2 from the wideband to the sct3

BowerR64 The wideband is one unit, the datalogger/tunner is another unit.

You hack a cable to tie the 2 together so you can log 1 file that combines all the data the datalogger/tunner logs with the wideband.

The datalogger already records ALOT of stuff the wideband just makes it that much more precise to tune with.

kjsoccerdude Ok, so I'll be buying an Apple Firewire and that's what I'll be hacking up. (No objection from me hacking up and Apple product haha jk.) Thanks for the answers.

bmylez I didn't say it was plug n' play. I said you don't have to hack up the wideband. The AEM wideband will have a white wire that is sticking out of the wire loom, ready to be connected to a cut up Firewire. If you get an Apple Firewire, for example, look up the pinout for an input wire and ground. Hook the input wire up to the white AEM wire and hook the ground up to...well, ground.

Then datalog away! Oh, and remember to select the correct analog equation for the AEM. It's under the "Commands" menu in the Livewire software.

kjsoccerdude So if I'll be using an AEM wideband and an XCAL 3 with whatever they come with new will I need to hack it at all or just plug and play?
03-09-2010 08:01 PM
bmylez No. All widebands come with an Analog output that is unconnected. There is no hacking into it.

What requires hacking is a Firewire cable if you have an X3 or a 9-pin mini DIN cable if you have an X2.

kjsoccerdude So wait a tick. To datalog at all with a Wideband you have to hack into the wires and reconnect some of them? It's not just plug and play? That kinda sucks. But glad this thread is here to show how to do it.

xy0s08 damnit that sucks!!!!
03-09-2010 07:32 PM
HaveBlue83 then no, you cannot datalog with that one.

AEM UEGO for the win.....
03-09-2010 07:27 PM
xy0s08 okay well the only problem that i run into is that these are the choices of wires i have because it only has 4.
red wire to a constant positive 12 volt (+) source.
Connect the white wire to a switched positive 12 volt (+) source (ex. ignition switch). Connect the black wire to an engine ground source (-).
The orange wire is an optional dimmer control wire that dims 30% in brightness when supplied with a positive 12 volt (+) source (ex headlamps).

So there for none of them are an output just all power sources.
