All calibrated widebands will give the same numbers. They shouldn't vary by brand unless you buy crap.

I have an Innovative Motorsports kit with the gauge and laptop logging.

I'm confused. Why do you want numbers to compare.... the expected numbers are pretty widely known and shouldn't be varying from S2 to S1 or otherwise.

They shouldn't vary from any automotive application expect for the preferred AFR under boost at WOT.

Not all wide bands give the same results
inovate was the most accurate followed by the aem and so on
go to club gp.com and search for wideband comparison the thread is pretty new!

I would really like to know how people are actually tuning their cars
when it seems like NOBODY has a wideband?????

i guess just making the motor run with no KR is good enough for most people

and most of them cant even handle that!!

Please anybody chime in !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've already told you that I run wideband, as do others. But it'* ridiculous to ask for our numbers.

We run the same numbers everyone else looks for. We're not all different from each other.

As you have noticed....and if you look at sigs. You will find that very few here run WB sensors. When compared to other forums most people here are not into hardcore speed and tuning yet.

As the other Bill mentions.. the numbers you want to see from a WB don't change and yes certain sensors are much more accurate than others. I have heard many things about Innovative and plan to purchase that sensor soon.

Saying NOBODY has a WB seems a good way to be proven wrong.

Interestingly though, the knock sensors don't lie so they're reliable in that sense in case you go too far.

Otherwise, target AFRs for boosted applications is a known value. The only question here is how far you'd like to push the envelope? I ran 0.7 AFR richer than needed to make peak power, just as a little insurance since it'* a daily driver.

Cheers,
