Fantastic falcon_95! This will make things so much easier! Looks great too. I've got a Calibre gauge aswell ;) I'll post mine when I'm done. Cheers mate

No worries mate, it's really easy to do , only hard part is finding the wire and having the confidence to cut it and connect it up, but I checked it over and over and it's the correct wire because the Needle moves,
Also if you use the ciggy plug all the needed wires are there such as positive , negative and illumination. So quite easy to do !
Now I just need a gauge pod and decide where I want it mounted
Cheers Corey

actually the calibre gauges are pretty acurate..for a cheap gauge!
and will read a wide band sensor aswell as narrow band..

much better than those auto gauge (cheap autometer)ones..

thats just my opinion though...

Nothing wrong with Calibre gauges, they still do the job.

So if I have a wideband o2 sensor, this will be able to tap into that and read off that, giving me a wideband reading?

I was told it wouldn't, which held me off, but if it does I'm getting one asap.

i got a bosch wideband sensor hooked up to my ems ecu and the gauge is tapped into the lambda+ and works great.. doesnt give you exact figgure as its not a digital gauge,( the ems data log gives me the exact reading) but the gauge does work as in wether its runing rich,lean or stoich

Hmmm well I have a TechEdge 2J1 and I reckon if I tap into the WBlin+ ("10bit PWM-sourced Differential Wideband output.") that should do it....I'll probably try it with my current gauge which is a Jaycar one and see how it goes! Cheers Troyman

All wired up, works well and looks cool ;) Easily hooked up to pin-35 and used a double contact connector to neaten things up.

Was frustrating at first starting the car for testing 3 times...no response. But when the you start driving it kicks in. Is that correct?

I also see what you mean about the needle jumping around. Occassionally it cant get a reading properly. I guess that's where the wideband setup helps out yeah?
