how far past turbo should wideband be at. i think mines to close!!

ok my lc-1 wide band has bin acting funny since day 1 of turbo install. it worked fine with my blower setup.


when i decel. it will max out. 22.0 then reset to 7.0 then in order for in to function again. i have to turn car off.


i think the problem is that the bung for it is like 6 inches or so after the turbo.

how far should i move it down. thanks brett the turbo kit is a on3.

sounds like you have a bad sensor. thats what my AEM did. bought a new sensor and it worked perfectly.

General consensus is 18" - 24" from the turbine discharge. You probably toasted the sensor.

if the sensor is bad do i have to buy it at Innovate Motorsports

all it is, is a Bosch Oxygen Sensor - P/N: 3737

i wonder if i can pick that up at a auto parts store.


plans are, im going to move sensor down another 8-10 inchs. and replace with a new sensor

Innovate Motorsports wants 79 bucks plus shipping. f that!!!!!!!!!!!

you need a heatsink

these sensors (vw oem bosch) are NOT designed to take that kind of thermal abuse

also it makes just about no difference where you mount it as far as your readings go

well i found out the issue. when i had a buddy install the wide band it was installed WRONG from the start.

he hooked up the calibration wire to ground. (so it was always grounded) anyways today i did rewire the whole wide band. and now have the calibration wire attached to a push button so next time when i need to calibrate it, im ready to go.

wide band works perfect now. thanks you all for your input.

I've got the AEM UEGO and a 00-02 Subaru Legacy sensor (Bosch 17018) will work. I replace mine every year like any other O2 sensor.

would the o2 read just as accurate with one of these?
