X pipe, Wideband, and Tuning

Unread postby Thefoxmulder » Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:20 am

Hi Folks

In the process of starting to tune the car. I've seen here and there talk about scavenging effects on Oxygen sensors with an X pipe. I have shorties with a Pypes Offroad X on the car. I assume the same situation will apply where it is beneficial to disable the drivers bank O2 sensor. With that in mind, if I disable it, can I install the Wideband sensor in its place? Obviously I would isolate the wideband analog to only the EGR pin 27 and tune Lambse exclusively off the passenger bank HEGO.

I assume there are no specific downsides to doing this, but if there are, it would be nice to know ahead of time what to look out for. I just want to confirm my thoughts before I potentially screw something up.

Thanks for the help!
