Am I OK mounting it as You described? Meaning it will handle the "stock" function as well as delivering the AFR readings to the gauge in Wideband (It simulates a narrowband signal to keep the stock computer happy, just FYI in case not known). Thanks
Some of PLX's Sensor Modules and sensors will do Narrowband emulation along with the WB reading. It is hit or miss whether that will work for you. Some people sing the PLX get it to work, some don't. They have Docs on their site about this. You may want to call them, they are very helpful. Y

ou want your wideband after the Turbo. Some folks say that arrowbands work better before the turbo because they stay hot and so forth. Not entirely certain i agree with that. Everybody says to put the WB after the turbo.

Hope that helps.

If I were you, I wold have another bung welded into the muffler inlet and mount your WB there and leave the factory sensor alone.
