Brian, I must be missing something but I don't understand your comment. Like many, I run without the O2 sensor plugged in. Thus, with the lambda system in open-loop, the frequency valve simple defaults to a fixed duty cycle (50%?) since the computer is no longer getting a signal from the sensor, so the fixed duty cycle becomes a constant against which to tune around. My AFR's are really fairly predictable and consistent, plus or minus a few tenths depending on ambient and engine temperature.
Could you expand a bit on what you're referring to?
