Did you ever figure which wires you needed to hook it up? [wrench]

Did those wiring diagrams help?

No it does not, only the R series does.

I am glad I went with the LM1 from innovate, since it does record and with options to record much more then just the AFR.

yea its nice, but for me datalopgging is a must. I chose zeitronix because it does a/f, egt's, boost (if u get the sensor), tps, rpm so it makes tuning very easy. If you can't tune I can see the non datalogging being fine, as long as its fast enough to see any spikes u may have.

out of curiosity, what's this do (ie, what do you folks use it for?)

thanks!

yes, they did..thanks again!

my car is a daily driver and i didnt really want an lm-1 sitting somewhere on my dash

i chose this because it tells me what i need it to...a/f ratio

we're using these for wideband air/fuel ratio voltages to tune off of.

Btw I have the exact same setup k0mp. plx m300

cool..you like it?

i have a passat service class tomorrow but i plan on installing it tomorrow after that

i also plan on taking pics of the install and if the admins are interested i can make a short how-to write up and add it to the diy section

I like the narrowband output simulation. keeps the exhaust nice and clean.

i like that too...

i went to radio shack and bought those 2 10ohm 10 watt resisitors it mentions in the instructions...i didnt realize they were going to be like 2 big chunks

Why would your LM1 need to be on your dash? You can run a standard AFR gauge right off of it and they even have some that have a button on it that will also start the log recording.
