Where can I get A/F Gauge before getting a tune

I am ready to get a tune for my ATX Focus, but I want to know where I can get the A/F gauge and which one is better?

I know Tom's tune is the most popular choice.. I told Tom several times I will get a tune, but money and I doesnt like each other.. so right now, it's "take it or leave it" for me.

I live in Greensboro, NC so i would like a local (NC) place where i can get it quickly instead of waiting on shipping.

C-F-M or ebay is your best bet for a AF Gauge

Keep in mind that with my tunes you get a true custom tune and you get free updates as you add more mods , Priceless

i bought a new AEM wideband from ebay for like $189 shipped and had it in two days.

You can get brand new AEM's or Innovative widebands on ebay for various prices.

I went with a PLX.
I wasn't aware that AEM had a NB output, but they do I guess. I'm happy with mine for the most part though.

If you go through the wideband thread in zetec tuning you should find one of my posts with links to virtually all the WBO2 sites, I may have missed the DIY stuff, but if you are in the know you'll already know of them.

I set things to the rich side for safety , If you have a AF gauge we can shoot for a little more performance and when in wide open throttle you can see your safe
