The Banks EE department has been hard at work expanding its line of sensors and modules for use with the iDash, and the upcoming wideband oxygen (O2) sensor is another great tool for performance enthusiasts.
For those not familiar with a wide band O2 its function is to monitor the amount of oxygen to fuel vapor in the exhaust stream to accurately measure the Air Fuel Ratio, or what’s commonly referred to as AFR. This reading gives the tuner the scoop on if the engine is running too rich or too lean. With the info they can make changes need to keep the engine running powerful, yet safe. Since it’ll be on the Banks CAN BUS all reading can be recorded on the iDash DataMonster for review instantly or later in conjunction with other vital readings from the engine.
No word on the expected release date, but development continues in Banks test vehicles and dyno cells. This sensor is so new at Banks that there isn’t a product name for it yet!
