i got this when i got my nitrous kit and it has saved my ass 2times. now i know you cant use it to tune the car but it WILL show you when you are running lean. like when the defective B&M fpr i had on took a crap i ran lean, now if i didnt have the meter i would have started melting stuff very quick. and when the vac/pressure line from the zex box blew off the fpr during a race ill bet by the end of the track i would have had to get a 70 mile tow but i saw it was running lean and i stopped. i suggest everyone buy this when your running boost or nitrous, not for tuning but for letting you know when your running lean cause of a fuel problem... its the best 60 bucks i spent!

if those 7-9 lights are all green, your doing fine.

If you see it dip into the yellow, be VERY careful!!!!!!!!

If the gauge goes dead red, your melting pistons and plugs, which I've done!!!!!!!

i need more fuel? i look at the plugs and they have a very light brown color to them. when i'm spraying my friends say that is black smoke that come from the exhaust like i'm running rich.

question: when I first installed mine, at idle, the led's would sweep from left to right in a very slow, smooth movement; I put on a header (zip tied the 2nd O2 sensor to the chassis) and it moved a little more jittery, had to put my stock manifold back on for smogging (CA) and ever since it jumps all over the place; it still moves from red to green like it used to, but its jittery like you wouldnt believe... is that normal? Only mods are aem cai and exhaust

get a used autometer off ebay.. and yes it does sweep from lean to rich but when your over i think 80% throttle it will go into rich and stay there, unless something is wrong...
