i just got mine shipped today, how do you guys get the bung installed? do you go to the exhaust shop and get the bung welded in, then plug it till you get home and install the gauge and sensor?
30milesHow far is the exhaust place? I'd just drive home wit it open. No big deal.
i thought of that, but you have to calibrate the sensor.well you can wire it up at home and run the wire to where your gonna want it and go to the exhaust shop and tell em where you want the bung and they put it and you just but in the sensor. simple as that
would that mess up the calibration though? since the sensor would be exposed to gases before the guage is calibrated?I had mine welded in at the local exhaust shop. Cost 20 bucks... Just take the wideband sensor and have them screw it in. Just ziptie the pigtail up and out the way till you get home and can finish the install.
so having the sensor exposed to the exhaust gases before the gauge is calibrated wont mess up the gauge calibration?leave a wire loose that way it dont turn on and when you get home you put the last wire so it turns on and you can calibrate it , or calibrate it going home
i got the MTX-L from siliconstopI just welded mine in myself. What gauge did you get? It wouldn't hurt anything to just drive it home without anything in the bung.
i just didnt think driving 30 miles with a 1/2" hole in the exhaust as a good idea.Just do as I mentioned.. You don't want the damn sensor installed before you calibrate it.
Get the bung welded on, drive your ass home and install the W/B. I don't see the rocket science in any of it...
Heres a pic of mine. Not many locations to choose from. Works great and had it for years on my stock exhaust with no problems with proper readings on Air/Fuel Gauge.ok, after looking at the drivers side exhaust, where the hell are you supposed to get it welded in at? i know youre supposed to put it in before the cats but it doesnt look like there is any room because of the other O2 sensors.
Don't rotate it to far around towards the front of the engine or you may have trouble accessing it with a wrench to tighten the new 02 Sensor.thanks for the pics redapple, after searching i found where someone mounted theres here. ill go to the exhaust shop and see what they can do.
