Maybe OT, but has anyone else T'd off the oil pressure port on the 2.3L? Am I the first? I'm ripping it all down again for the third time. Everything fit, it was just impossible to get one of the filter housing bolts tight enough. The clearances are so freaking tight. I'm quite frustrated... I want to drive my damn car.

All the gauges work though, got everything lit up and working for a minute before I noticed the oil leak.

Is it actually leaking or are you just seeing oil on there from you installing it? It's hard to install the sender without some oil leaking out and it's normal for it to burn off. But it's of course not normal for it to continue leaking after you install it.

No man. I really f'ked up. I think I need a new filter housing now. When trying to get that last bolt, something snapped. Half of a nipple is stuck in the port now. I don't know how to get it out. Only a couple mm are sticking out.

Something tells me my car isn't going to go anywhere for a while.

I was wondering why my car was running so bad????? j/k I dont actually have the lines hooked up to their prespective areas. I just have them hooked for power. The gauges have a test mode it runs when you turn the ignition on. It sweeps blah blah blah, I dont feel like typing what it does and what it means. Imma be probably doing it tommorow if I get time during lunch.

Hehe.. didn't even notice that. At least I got some real readings from the gauges before my fiasco. (Including AF, but it was at ultra-lean since it hadn't warmed up yet).

You're not going to get much out of it. The weird thing with these gauges is that the characteristic curves they show in the instructions as being the right type of O2 sensor are narrow-band. So they have a full wide-band range and full sweep but designed for narrow-band OEM-style sensors. Kinda weird, but it should be able to at least show the voltage oscillations.

Stoichiometric (theoretical ideal) is 14.7:1, but realistically, you're good around 13-14:1. Below that you're rich, like 10-11:1 would be very rich. Anything above 15:1 is definitely lean. I obviously haven't had much time to experiment, but I doubt these gauges will be very accurate.

I got mine on a group buy. Think for all 3 I paid a little under 400. Well worth it though.

A/F gauges will usually spike to 20+ when you let off the throttle and coast. So don't be alarmed if that happened. Joe (cvillesix)'s comments are for engines "under load".
