    Wideband or non wideband lambda sensor????

    Hi, I want to know if my car as a wideband lambda sensor....

    I think that the wideband sensor have 6 wires in the plug, is this true???

    Can I see if it is wideband or not with VAG com?

    If it isn't wideband what should I do the read the correct AFR? Install a gauge with wideband sensor?

    I don't need nothing permanent it's just to tune...

    I have that feeling too....

    To install a AFR gauge do I have to put the windeband sensor in the downpipe? Can it be near or before the CAT? I have the Idea that it can be anywhere but....

    APY is not a wide band ECU soz...

    Ideally the wideband probe should somewhere close to where the OEM one is at the top...
