Anybody installed a Air/fuel gauge? What are the choices? on what exhaust side to measure from? and last location inside? Just looking to buy one to see where my engine A/F starts out with. Thanks

If you are going to buy one, get a wideband a/f gauge. A narrowband one will end up just being a light show in the car, wideband will actually tell you your a/f ratio.

yes I read all aboutthose gauges, but where to sample from left right? locate the gauge inside. Too bad they cannot tie into the HUD

I am very happy with Glowshift wideband, I mounted it on the driver side headder collector next to the ECU one. Travis is right about the narow band totaly useless and collecting dust.
I A pillar Pod mounted my gauges and 10 different color LED's with Glowshift , looks sweeeeet.

What's the purpose of knowing your a/f ratio? I'm new to performance and mods. Just picked up a 2011 LS m6

It is important to keep the right balance of a/f ratio for optimal performance. To much air (lean) and you run the risk of melting the piston top, (burning a hole), happens in two stroke snowmobiles often when to lean. To much fuel (rich), poor performance, waste of fuel, poor mileage. So with a gage you can keep an eye on that ratio to see if the tune is doing its job.
