Anyone running a wideband?

I was reading about the accuracy with widebands and how grounding is pretty key. Right now its just on a ground on a screw on the dash.

" ground it to the "analog sensor" ground on your ECU if you have one. If not just use the same ground location as your ECU. "

Any input on this?

Ian, I have mine grounded at G904 (drivers side of the dash control stack). It works well there and has calibrated with the Tuner Studio Dashboard. If you want it near the ECU, ground G210 is directly under the ECU. You need to run the 5v wire to ECU Pin 29, so running the ground wire along with it, would be no problem. I read the reply on TF and just shook my head.

You talking about grounding it to the block? If I could figure out where G210 is I'd do it lol. I already have it connected to the pin 29.

Yeah, "the block", :rotfl: !!

G210 is just below the ECU bracket in about 2" or so off the floor. Pull the carpet back, it's under that mess of wiring located there.

My Innovative MTX-L is grounded to the dash, and works just fine.
