a/f gauge
« on: 00:31, Sat 10 January 2009 »
am not thick , Honest , but on the standerd elbow of the turbo , and even on some aftermarket versions , can an a/f not be run of the pipe that comes out of the elbow , ? and when you buy the guage that every one seems to buy of ebay , does it come with every thing you need od do you need to purchase other items in order for it to work , ?? you have to ask these things lol

If you mean the Innovate Motorsports setup then yes everything comes in the box. It's from Graham Goode Racing website and not eBay but you might come across some in there.

The hole in the turbo elbow is probably the wrong thread size, and i'm certain it would be far to hot for the sensor there anyway.

I've fitted mine in the downpipe, just before the bend. This seems to be the most common position.

Yes the hole is far to close, you will need to get the downpipe drilled & then the boss welded to the pipe for the sensor. Ideally at the 2 or 10 o'clock position.

Thats all you need but it's the larger option, the LC-1 with DB gauge is the one with the small 50mm gauge in it, the LM1 is like a gameboy, maybe slightly larger.
