    I can read the words just fine, I just have no idea what he's saying.

    You'd need a wideband air/fuel for it to be worth anything, and that's really expensive - you'd be better with boost, egt, and oil temp (if you ask me)

    They basically tell you the same thing. The higher your egt's the leaner your AFR's are. Ideally you'd have temp sensors for each of the cylinders, failing that one sensor in your upipe, and if not that then a one in your downpipe. You can get a good EGT guage and sensor for less than $100. A wideband 02 will cost you at least twice that.
