    Question Wideband sensor location?

    Fabricating the exhaust system using the Pypes kit, with the X-pipe crossover. (L33/4L60E). Going to use the Terminator X Max.
    Instead of putting the sensor in one side or the other, might it be a more accurate read, with the sensor in the center of "X"? I'm going to add a bung in each head pipe, so I can still use my stand-alone WBO2 sensor, for troubleshooting. Yes, no, maybe? TIA

    It's not recommended to locate the WBO2 sensor in the X-pipe/crossover, because the two banks of an engine measure differently.
    So you could be exacerbating a potential AFR problem by trying to read both banks simultaneously. It should be in the leaner bank.
    My search terms must've been such, that this thread didn't come up.
