Keep an Eye on Your Air/Fuel Ratio
Your engine’s air/fuel ratio is critical to improved performance, especially if it’s a turbo or supercharged engine. The best way to keep an eye on your air/fuel ratio is by measuring oxygen levels in your exhaust system with an Innovate Motorsports Wideband Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge. They feature DirectDigital™ signal processing and Advanced Sensor Control that samples oxygen sensor data faster and more frequently so you get a real-time picture of the air/fuel ratio at any point in the engine’s powerband.
