a wideband allows you to see what your air/fuel ratio looks like, without one its either a dyno, or a guess. with guessing, your not gonna know what your getting, because it may not be enough to feel, the only way to tell is if your a/f is rich/lean, and correct it based on what the wideband sensor sends back.

Dyno is the only way to fly IMO. A wideband does provide accurate readings but constant WOT pulls on the street are just not safe.....You can do a decent Partial throttle tune but dyno time is a good investment, especially since you have a ported head. but thats just my .02

other thing you may consider to hold you over is to install a FPR. I am suprised you havn't gotten a CEL with a ported head. Couple buds have had it done and stock fuel won't cut it for them. Hopefully your not running lean...

You dont need FRP, fuel rail, or injectors. Your stock ones are fine. You arent making that much power. My best suggestion is to run the AFC zero'd out. Get to the point where you are basically done modifying the car(buy your header,intake, blah blah blah). Then schedule an hour of dyno tuning(should cost roughly $150). With your paticular setup you shouldnt need more than an hour. I suggest bringing $200 with you though. If they are dicks and kick you off the dyno after an hour, say you have $200 and you need your tune completed. If they are good guys they will continue tuning even if it takes an extra 30 minutes.

well thing is an hour of dyno tuning around here cost like 400 bucks. not no 150, if i could find a dyno to tune at for 150 it would have been done already.
oh and the dyno shop told me i need fpr, rail, and injectors, before id could be tunned. any one know of a better shop around in or around austin.

stock injectors good enough, fpr is just basically going to bring up your idle but nothing else. Just because you have a port done it doesn't mean that you will throw a cel. A cel is when you get a check engine light that will come on. To check, I am sure you know how by now.
