did you get a wide or narrow band afr gauge?

They run a narrow band o2 sensor so unless you got a narrowband o2 gauge you won't get far. Even then, they aren't the best so i've heard.

as for which wire, theres only 2 to choose from, guessing 1 is positive and the other is negative.

Yep ok, its a narrow band gauge so it will work with the standard sensor.

sorry my bad, the stock sensor may be 3 wire - haven't checked in a while. I haven't got my workshop manual on me atm so I couldn't tell you what wire, someone else may be able to, alternatively if you have a multimeter then you can go probing for the right wire

edit: nevermind found out why.
