What good is an AFR going to do to you? The pcm manages it, and you can't change it without a tuner. In addition, narrow-band AFR gauges feeding off your O2 are worthless and tell you nothing useful. You need a wideband setup to know anything, and your mods don't dictate the need.

Try two aeroforce gauges instead, with each displaying 2 parameters. That'* 4 gauges in two.

Well I thoug that would be the best choice at the bigining, but 2 of them is a lot of $.
I guess I could buy one first, & then the other.
By the way, I did not know you could display 2 parameters at the same time. Thats cool.

IIRC,you have to get them in matching pairs. There is a special cable that comes with them.
The coolest thing is they have a "cyclic" scan and can actually display a total of 8 parameters over a 1 minute period

adding a second DLC connector is another route.
