I agree that investing in a tuner would be very beneficial for you. The wideband doesn't do you a whole lot of good without it. Yes you can adjust your fuel pressure with your adjustable regulator, however that doesnt' change it throughout the powerband.

9.0 is rediculously rich.....11:1 is a little better but even that is still rich. I usually shoot for about 12.5 or so but if your not at least in the 11'* its quite rich. At cruising obviously you want ~14.7:1.

Thanks for the offer Foghorn.

I would have to buy a Tuner first and that is not in this years budget.

Maybe next year...............if I still have the Bonne.

I'm almost due for a new one......and it will have a V8 and RWD.

The Aeroforce does have O2 and IIRC AF, however because it is limited in recording/data presentation it is not a preferred item to rely on for tuning.

As for the Aeroforce, i am new to it but was doing a little reading on it. I dont believe it can monitor a/f but i am not 100% sure. As for the recording/ data presentation, I believe it can store up to 20 seconds of live data and replay it. Could you like record rpms and say KR, then log it on a piece of paper and then do rpms and O2, ect. That is just an idea and it would probably be much easier to just get a scanner that can do all that but just an idea.

I have an Aeroforce. It doesn't read O2 in any recordable form.....toggling numbers faster than you can even read them.

That'* why I got the Autometer Wideband A/F gauge.

I would think that if you are running lean that you would see the KR on the Aeroforce gauge but no, no way to tell lean or rich with it.
