I really like this, I am doing the same only it's a jdm d15b vtec-e and I'm using a demon to read my innovate Mtx-L 0-5v output. I don't know if I'll be using egr...hopefully it tunes well without it. How did you decide on the lc1? I went with the Mtx-L purely because of price and brand. Still waiting to hear about that rear vx under moulding. As my coupe and your sedan are the same long wheelbase floor pan. I think thee trunk lid shape is part of the cd difference between 2-4 door I thing, not sure if it's swappable but the tail lights are the same.

I didn't really know what I was looking at for the wide band haha. I just read it has data logging capabilities and another member used it for his lean burn setup so I went ahead. U said something about tuning, what ecu are you using? Is it going to be a custom tune?
I have the rear diffuser off of the Vx I stripped I'll try and post a pic.

I got the gauge hooked up save for a headlight dimmer wire and a calibration switch. Here are some pics. The pod still needs paint that will happen Saturday. I couldn't wait to hook it up. Anyways, first pic is pulling up a hill. Second pic is dfco coasting down a hill. Third pic is in lean burn




On a 3 mile trip highest I've seen lean burn so far is 21.6:1 afr. Very cool!!

Its the stock p06 for a 95 dx auto, vtec enabled, and socketed with a demon rtp. I was curious how lean lean burn is, I thought I read 18:1. I do have the dimmer wire hooked up, and it hardly make a difference I might have to tint my gauge. I thought in the programmed settings I might be able to change it but not that I've found yet. I do have my green led's setup for 9(let's hope I never see it, though with stock map for d15b7 running a d16a6 I saw 11.6 at one point(WOT)) and going yellow at 14.7 and red at 19 and stopped the sweep and numerical display at 28 because these are port injected cars, we can't controll very well a anything leaner, but I've seen direct injection in the 40's ��

I'm using the p07-a00. 18 would be on the richer side of lean burn. I stayed mostly in 20-21.5 range. I did a quick WOT test and it was 12.3 I have a couple p06's and a p05 laying around that I could chip but I'm just gona keep goin with what I got and see what it can do

Gauge pod is done. Paint is not the right tone it's a little too light lol. I'll get some darker tan eventually but I'll leave it like this for a little while.





I won't be updating very often anymore. I've run out of stuff to do. Next is aero. I've decided when the car hits 300k in a couple months I'm going to start getting the exterior pretty. New rust free doors, trunk lid, fix the quartes and dents, new front bumper with grill block and paint the entire car. Also new carpet. For now I will fine tune lean burn driving styles and the warm air intake.

In addition to the grill block I'm planning underbody diffuser panels and tire diffusers skirts. Every thing will be stealthy so it's not noticeable. I will be sure to update here when it happens. Maybe I'll join team Honda when I start hitting over 50 mph tanks

You can join now. It's for encouragement. The more the merrier.
