narrowband is all for show...it has the hole oooos, and aaahhhhhss, but no real purpose...wideband gauges will need a wideband o2 to be affective, otherwise its the same thing...

They are useless......accuracy and narrowband don't even belong in the same sentence, kind of like honda and torque.

I think some of the comments above are misleading.

NB are accurate. It's what's used by your ECU in closed loop to run your engine. It better be accurate.

WB gauges are also for show unless you're tuning.

So if you're looking for a light show then you might as well save money and slap in a NB gauge. And it should accurately show you what the NB values are and give you an idea how well the ECU is maintaining a target AFR in closed loop.
