Trial and error, or join a forum that has people who have used HP tuners on a car like yours, o and try to make a friend who has some tuning experience, that would help and be cheaper most likely.

Won't the professional version of hptuners with wideband sensors do the same thing?

Is a Wideband Sensor & Controller included with the MPVI Pro?
No. You would need to purchase this separately from a company such as Innovate motorsports, PLX, AEM, Etc.

Right from their site

Right I know that, but that one you showed me doesn't integrate with hptuners does it? That'* what I was getting at. Why have an external device when it can be integrated in with the tuning software. You would need the pro version for the blackbox feature.

All it is is ports on the side of the module to hook up a wide band. It also lets you log without a computer and then you can download it when you get home. I run my wide band threw my AC sensor wire.
