So, I bought A/F Wideband, Boost, Fuel Press. *and fuel rail adaptor*

but, I just found out you HAVE to get the control module. Now, this is my fault, I should've done my homework. I can only get pissed off at myself. The gauges look SICK! Anyone install these? How hard is it? I've seen some install pictures and how-to write up. But, I've only seen them for trucks and rice-burners. Anyone have any ideas, or pointers??? OR .... ?

the install is pretty much the same from car to car. wires all hook up the same. the only real difference is where you may decide to put them.

Quick question. With the Nexus Gauge install. Obviously all of the sensors feed into the Control Module. Now, there is a designated place for Fuel Pres. Boost/Vac BUT, there is no spot for A/F Wideband... Where do you stick that one??? AUX maybe???

I think the A/F is probably going to be stand alone or require a different module. Let me look quick.


Yup. I think you may be able to hook it up to the module for the on-board data logging but otherwise you can hook it up by itself.

The Wideband A/F plugs into the "Network" port in Channel Sensor Module and also daisy chains to the next Nexus gauge in the network.

The install was not difficult. I picked up power from the passenger side fuse panel with "add-a-circuit" fuse taps. Mounted the Sensor Module under the steering column with velcro.

Here are my Nexus gauges in a Speed of Sound triple pod.

I think I'm pretty set. I'm just trying to figure out where/what I'm going to use for Ignition On and Full-Time power. I searched and someone had used the Brake Switch. But I'm not sure.
Any ideas? Pictures help...

if you go to shows they have the cool playback feature that you could keep on with a simple toggle switch going to a constant on. not sure how you would have to wire it in order to be able to have them work w/o the switch while on and with the switch while the car and key are off. maybe using a diode (?) so the constant power wouldn't be able to flow backwards to the ignition when the car is off and the switch is on.
