Correct... Long term you would want the stock O2's maintaining the fuel trim. But for shear knowledge of actual AFR and what I've been using mine for which is verification that the commanded AFR from the ECM actually matches what the engine is actually seeing you need a wideband. I added a O2 bung into the passenger side downpipe so I could have both the factory O2's and a spot for my wideband.

@Rallye Green Z Did you get dyno'ed after the install? I just changed up my order from a p1sc1 to p1x. I originally ordered p1sc1 and after doing some research decided I REALLY didn't want the spur gears, so I ended up ordering the helical gearset and p1x w/ stage II intercooler.

Also, do you know what exact wideband you have? How was it really to install? I haven't had time to digest the install instructions yet... was wondering if they are pretty generic, or if there are specific ones for 6th gen camaro? This is the one I was looking at: https://www.jegs.com/i/AEM/017/30-0300/10002/-1

honestly, if you can still change it..... just switch to the d1x.

You will thank me later.

if not.... order the d1-x anyways, and I will make you a sweet deal on my p1x. lol.

Ooof.... If I start down that route, I'm gonna end up having to pull the engine, upgrade the internals and drain my bank account too.

it takes all but like 2 seconds to max out the p1x. and it's only a few hundred bucks to go from p1x to d1x now.... opposed to $1200 later.

ask me how I know. lol

Asking how you know

Seriously though, I'm interested in knowing specifically what the issue was. I've never had a Centri before and not sure what 2 seconds to max means. Do you mean through intercooler and intake charge temp or what?

I had heard that for moderate applications, the p1x or even the p1sc1 were fine and put less parasitic load on the system compared to the bigger ones. I see you've got some addl work done, so maybe you are talking about for higher HP applications?

This is a semi-daily driver, so not going to get too crazy with things.

CJperformance, I have not had mine on a dyno yet anyway. I used the AEM like you posted earlier that connects via the OBD port. Works well for me, plus I can easily move it to other vehicles. I also have a Autometer gage that is more permanently mounted in the A pillar trim along with a boost gage. Overall the install of the gage was easy, other than removing the downpipe to install the O2 sensor bung.

Danhr is correct, it won't take long before you want more... just begins to add up quick.
