Default narow band gauge wideband sensor

Ok i have a narrowband autometer gauge that i found in my garage the other day and i also have a Bosch wideband sensor i got from a caddy cts v at work. I did some searching here to find out if anyone had tried putting these two together but didnt find an answer. I know it wont be good for tuning but i was wondering if it maybe made it more accurate than a narrow band sensor. my car isnt running yet so i have no way to test this yet but i figured i would ask.

you lack a wideband controller, and do you even know the scale or range of your wideband sensor?

it converts the signal for a wide to narrow reading, and keeps the temp of the wideband under control for accurate readings. 14point7 sponsor has a JAW kit that's like $40 solder yourself wideband controller

if you know what scale the wideband sensor reads

it could be linear 0-1v, 1-5v, 1-2.5v, you probably don't know. it could even read 0-5v, but be non-linear. oem widebands are goofy

Ignore c0mpl3x, he is unaware of how a wideband functions; it needs to be intelligently controlled in order to produce any intelligent response. Like others have said, you need a controller.

I think the JAW might be a solid option for you. You can control the voltage output of the JAW in such a manner that you can specify what each individual LED on your narrowband display means in AFR.

Also, AFRs are only half of being safe. You also need to understand ignition!

ok i should get a jaw controller and program it to recognize the voltage from my sensor..im going to keep tabs on everything else through the emanage and eo1. besides this is just a temporary option to fill a hole in one of my pods, I would just like it to be more than a light show and actually do something. i plan on getting a real wideband setup when i can afford it.

You don't program the JAW to recognize your sensor, you program the JAW to output the voltage you want going to the narrowband.

It's not all that complicated, but it is something you won't fully understand until you get a wideband and play with it.
