Cheap wideband O2 sensor tip

I was parusing the s2ki forums (in case I win big at the casino ), and found this little nugget from someone who was putting a AEM EMS in their car..


"AEM tipped me off that the O2 sensor in a 96-97 Civc HX model is in fact a UEGO wideband O2 sensor. It's about 300 new from Honda and we are attempting to locate one at the salvage yards here. "

Also some rumors that the 97-00 HX models use the same wideband sensor. Mmmmm.. will have to hunt down the manufacturer spec sheets and see what kinda resolution you get.

Re: Cheap wideband O2 sensor tip

dirtylude mentioned this in another post... it seems like there are several different honda civic VX sensors. i'm sure somebody knows the details, but the four i found are a bosch for 115.13, an ntk for 93.48, a denso for 95.45, and a different bosch for 60.35....

diy-efi tells me that it's this one

92-95 Honda Civic, P/N 36531-P07-003 Bosch # 13246

....which is not any of the ones that came up on the parts bin.

That's the sensor I ordered as per the instructions on the AUS site...it's for a '95 Civic VX D15. AEM is right in that it is a UEGO, however you still need the circuitry to drive the heater which AFAIK the EMS doesn't provide. I built the aussie o2 setup in a few hours (only the controller, haven't gotten around to tackling the display yet) and am looking forward to getting it in my car.

The sensor is like $117.00 from www.thepartsbin.com The sensor itself is useless to you. You need the controller in order for it to work.

Ian,

Did you order the LED display, or are you going to route the signal into the AEM EMS?

I've ordered one as well, and it's currently being built by Jason ("jayjjj"). I was thinking of using a cheap-o DMM with a decent sampling rate, remove/extend the LCD screen (but keep the rest of the circuitry), and mount it somewhere on the dash. If not, just connect the sensor for tuning/confirmation purposes only and possibly use an analog multimeter for greater resolution (if needed).

Both. I ordered both the controller and the display but have procrastinated in building the display...I'm planning on running it into the EMS but would also like to have a visual when I don't have a laptop up and running. Here's a pic of my completed controller, note that the db9 connector isn't on it yet...

Sounds like a decent plan...I originally intended on keeping the setup portable so that I could use it in tuning other cars but have now decided to keep it permanently mounted instead.

I'm a little fuzzy on the auto-tune functionality in the EMS, though...I emailed AEM and the response was vague at best, simply pointing to activating OXFB and specifying when to run closed loop. I was hoping that it had the hondata-esque feature of auto adjusting the maps to fine tune...looks like that may be one of those "future" upgrades.

What's the going rate on controllers for wideband O2 sensors.. perhaps I can get a DIY kit prepared on the cheap here at work.
