Installing A Wideband Data-Logger In A Ford Mustang - Power Hangs In The Balance
The shifter boot seemed as...
The shifter boot seemed as good a place as any to run the LC-1 harness through. The boots are easy and cheap to replace, and the rubber will protect the harness.
According to the provided...
According to the provided instructions, you're not supposed to install the O2 bung below the 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock position, as condensation can form in the exhaust pipe and permanently damage the sensor. Since we're using an existing bung from one of the rear O2 sensors, it looks like we'll be taking our chances.

Using plastic tie straps, we routed the LC-1's cable over the transmission and up through the shifter boot. We then worked it up underneath the dashboard. Connect the RED wire from the back of the XD-16 to a switched 12V source in your car. A switched 12V source goes on as soon as the ignition on the car is on or the engine runs. Make sure the connection is fused with at least a 2-amp fuse.

The XD-16 is 3/4 inch thick, so it's possible to surface mount it, or you can stick it in a 2-1/16-inch (52mm) gauge pod.

The basic XD-16 kit ships with both black and silver bezels, and eight different faces: two each of AFR, pressure, temperature, and blank.

We mounted the XD-16 in a single A-pillar gauge pod and ran the wires under the dash.
The blue and white wires should...
The blue and white wires should all be grounded to the same ground source. Although these grounds are of the same source, the blue wire should be wired separately from the white wire to avoid analog ground noise. We ran two separate grounds from this source into the interior.
Both of the grounds were then...
Both of the grounds were then grounded again and the blue and white wires were connected separately.

Innovate uses a daisy-chain setup with its modular tuning system. With it, you can connect many devices in a single line, all of which can be logged by the DL32.

We mounted the DL-32 at the back of the console where we could easily access the flash card to download the data.

Once you've loaded the software into your computer, you can insert the SD flash memory card from the DL32 and check out your logs. Here, you can see the AFR is already set up, and there are instrument graphics for other inputs.

Just like dynamometer software, you can review your car's performances by rpm, and overlay each one to compare run by run.
