The usefulness is about zip - watch those teeny lights and numbers flash by..........not worth the powder to blow

An actual full time hookup by Innovate, with actual data logging rather than useless unreadable numbers flashing by.

I need a AFR guage but not one that is busy and expensive like that. The designer was not experienced in instrumentation. Its anti-Human factors because its not a good idea to jam as much nonsense in something as possible. Instrumentation should be located in the cockpit where it is clearly visible and easy to read unlike my porsche dash with a Momo steering wheel where I really cant see half my instruments. Again, IMO... its too busy! No thanks!

Which gauge are you talking about, the original or the XD-16? The Innovate product is a LOT more than just a A/F guage..

It's hard for me to see the value in any gauge - that by it's very nature of association with rpm - flashes numbers by so rapidly they are essentially meaningless.

Now if you get the Innovate setup which can log the data in real time and small increments, THAT is worth buying, especially if you have made moderate to heavy engine modifications and/or track your 930.

Then an accuarate AFR reading is pretty much mandatory - this is also accomplished by a dyno run with AFR capabilities.
AFR on a 930 is the most important area to focus upon.

Blownsix

Not sure about the gauges, but I just had a friend order one of their intercoolers, they held his money for 56 days while they gave him all kinds of crap for excuses, then when he finally got it, required extensive mods to fit, and the workmanship was very poor. I'll get some pictures up and more details of the mods to make it fit.

Remember back in the '70s when they put digital speedos in some cars? You couldn't read them because they were always in between numbers. It looks like they designed this gage for the rice rocket crowd.
