Who here is running a wideband conversion from raceline?

I am thinking about doing this for my AEB and wondering who has real world experience with it.

I'm quite certain this wideband upgrade is only applicable for 2000 model year ATW engine code. It is drive-by-wire, but still narrowband. This makes it easily upgradeable to ME7 by just swapping the primary O2 sensor, the ecu, and adding a couple wires to the harness (ie: what this conversion kit is doing). The AEB is not drive-by-wire, so it would require much more modification to make it happen.

Like walky_talky20 said - That's not going to work. I wish it was that easy, since I'm in the middle of doing the conversion myself AEB to AWM. You can either buy the 034 Standolone or go the route I did. I got all the Engine wiring harness, the interior wiring harness and the dash wiring harness. You'll need to change the gas pedal, there other things that I can't think off the top of my head. Just since I'm going though this, I think if you're not going to go with a crazy build. I'd say to not go this route, either sell your car and buy a 01 AWM or just get a good tune with the proper MAF and injectors and you'll be fine. This is just my 2 cents

Thank you for the replies. I spoke with raceline today and confirmed that I cannot change over without major updating like you are doing.
I'm not interested in doing those things, so it's just going to be a tune for the AEB.
