AFR Sensor Location
I currently have an Innovate LC-1 wideband sensor with XD-16 gauge. The sensor is mounted upstream from the turbo in the left header collector. This is not a location recommended by the manufacturer, due to high pressure conditions caused by the turbo and extreme heat that will reduce the life of the sensor. In addition, I'm not confident that the AFR values are accurate, which may be a result of the current location of the sensor. I've scheduled some time on a dyno next week and they will be placing a sensor up my tailpipe (i know, i know) and hopefully I can at least set my AFR @ 12.0 - 12.2.
So here's my question, if the folks dynoing my car just place their sensor up my tailpipe, why can't I have a bung welded on my tailpipe and insert the sensor? Seems logical to me ... What do you folks think?
