It basically tells you an accurate air/fuel ratio. Air/fuel ratios are important not only to gaining peak performance but also for saftely of the engine. It will tell you whether you are running rich or lean...lean being the worse of the two. Thats a very simple explanation of it.

Normal 02 sensors that we hook gauges to are simply not very accurate, there more of an "oh ----" meter that will tell you if you suddenly went lean.

Excuse me if this is a noob question, but could you hook up the wb02 sensor to the autometer guage and have an accurate reading?

Saw the wb02.com link, think I'm going to buy the DIY kit.

Anybody got any (positive )experiences with it?
