    Not really an option with those parts on your car.

    I was afraid of that.. I wish there was someone kinda local to where they could run the scan and tune it. I stay sooo busy between college and work I dont hardly have time to read up on everything about tuning, and I do not want to mess up my ecu. Il keep searching for somewhere local. Bristol, (Bristol Raceway) is an hour away from me, so I would think some tuning shops would be up near that way?

Regardless, you will want a way to log data. Tactrix is probably your best bet. It's surprising that there is not a wideband o2 sensor installed with a gauge, considering the mods on the car.

    Oh there is a 02 sensor in my exhaust but it is not plug into anything. I believe this is the wideband 02 sensor your talking about. I just need a guage and whatever connector for it. I have a 3 gauge pod but no guages to go into it I have a cheap looking boost gauge on it currently. Btw if anyone has extra guages laying around pm me and I would like to take them off your hands if they work and are fairly cheap-er priced.

    Hmm...I'm up north, so I can't suggest any locations, but maybe some other people from VA will have some suggestions.

    I was going to say it looks like you have one coming off your downpipe. follow that wiring and see where it goes. It is possible that the guy has it wired to a serial port up through the glove box or something. If he does that could be connected to your laptop and you could monitor wideband o2 if you download software for it.

    Ah.. Wonderful...
    Here: this may be the wideband 02 sensor and exhaust temp. if I had to guess. Two different connector if you couldnt tell.

    In your #16 post, the wideband would be the second wire coming off the downpipe I believe. That is where my original WBo2 sensor was mounted (I have a 2011 so I don't know much about the 05's, but I think that it would be the same location).
