I'll ignore the subtle insult and comparison, Pat.

I chose that HUD pod for potential use long ago. And there'* far less work and TIME involved in getting it done than the double ***** Boosty did.

Time is the major factor, but I think it'll come out just fine at the same time.

Correction... Triple *****

Your wideband O2 do you have a link for it? Where do you plan on putting the new 02 Bung?

Innovative Motorsports is the wideband.

Going in the downpipe. Came with a bung and plug. No room near the stock location in the rear manifold, and I didn't want both obstructions that close to each other. My favorite exhaust shop will weld the bung for me, but I'll already have the hole drilled underneath and a bushing installed for the wires to go into the passenger compartment. Just inside the center console.

I have to choose the location carefully to keep it protected from road hazards. I'm actually considering running this full-time. It'* nice to know you have that last little warning if you run lean under high boost.

I think running the wideband full time would be great. If I had the option, I would definitely do it.

Would it be possible to rig up a light (maybe like a shift light) to go on when you're running too lean?

You've got another car to drive...take a break. It'* not necessary to push this hard on putting it together.
