Check out this kit. http://search.ebay.com.au/search/search ... category0=

I'm using the same one in my ute. I got it for $360 to my door from the states, but at that time this guy on ebay was selling them for around $460 to your door, so this price he has them for atm isnt too bad.

The Wideband kit gives you an exact reading to 0.1 AFR whereas the narrowband will basically only tell you if its rich, stoich or lean which makes tuning a pain in the a**. Where the wideband can tell you exactly where your AFR's at as its the same sensor used on dyno's so it makes self tuning a dream.

Mine has been very good so far, probly one of the best things you can buy for a modified car especially if it has been tuned since factory.

Looks good, check the MSforums see if there is some feedback about it,
probably sell for well over $200pp as his buy it now price for another unit is ~$535pp

the other sensor i mentioned u can use Megatune to view your AFR's. not sure if u can hook a gauge up to it, sure you could just splice the input to the MS to a gauge.
