Grey black and two whites. Do i have to run the wire all the way out of the cab above the tranny or is there a closer wire?

ok im not positive, i use a wideband, but my guess is the two white wires are your signal wires that run to your o2s. you can prolly use your front o2s, either way you're going to have to run it thru the firewall. the black wire is prolly your ground wire and the grey one is prolly your power wire which you can hook to a switch or an another wire that gets power when turning the car on.

does it come with any instructions?

I belive its line 84 going to the ECU that you tap into with narrow bands. I would recommend pm'ing SWEET2KSTANG and ask him as i know he knows.

Personally i would recommend ditching the narrow band and go wideband, because you'll need a wideband for the m112 swap

like i said....talk to SWEET2KSTANG

But i recommend ditching that narrowband....waste of time and money if you use it. It will seriously tell you NOTHING. You'll just basically have a light show going on in your car with that gauge going all over the place

woah! $370...You would be ripped off if you bought a wideband for $370

The best on the market (plx) only cost $180.

And i've already given all the help i can bro...PM SWEET2KSTANG and ask which wire is the signal wire...he knows which it is

I've been wondering... whats the difference between the narrow and wideband? Obviously wideband is better and can do more things, but what exactly?


If its got titts or tires, it's gonna give you problems.
