Wideband on FZR/SHO
I am looking at picking up a wideband to check AFR's with and was wondering what everyone is using and how and where you have it mounted. It looks like most people are using the Dynotune setup with the LC-1 and the Small square guage. How are you installing the sensor? is the optional heat sink necessary if you don't plan on permanently mounting the gauge but only checking AFRs when tuning and then removing the sensor? I'm basically trying to figure out what all I need to buy. Thanks!

i am trying to find one thats waterproof for my turbo set up, since water is not going to run thru the exhaust anymore, i cant find anything, hope somebody can help me also, i have the innovative one, but i believe is not waterproof i use it for tuning purposes only.

The MTX-L is what most of us are using now. Same company who makes the LC-1, but it already comes with the LC-1 built into a waterproof gauge. It's the same price as the LC-1 used to be. It's the best option for us.

NGK AFX. Its more accurate than the innovates

Its water "resistant".. Not necessarily water proof. I've never rolled my ski, and since I have it in the glove box it doesn't really get wet

But one thing I want to point out to you guys though, is that the MTX-L isn't really waterproof, it's splash proof, but is still the best bet for PWC's. Just warning you guys so you don't go rolling the ski's and come back thinking the MTX-L will work after. It holds up nicely to some the light spray it will get when mounted on the ski. The only thing is a little fog that accumulates behind the gauges glass. It's really simple to disassemble and clean though.

Bringing this back from the dead because i need to know this before i permanantly leave my afr guage on.
is the optional heat sink necessary? And does it read accurate with this extra adapter?

I think you will struggle to find a water proof digital gauge anywhere.
My innovate lc1 mounted in my glove box compartment, prior to fitting it I used black silicone around the face and the rear or the gauge for the locking ring, this is as close to water resistant you will get, then its just a matter of where your wiring runs in seal it all up afterwards.
Short story.... Use silicone on everything.
