I have an electronic Air-fuel mixture gauge that I have to hook up to my 94 thunderbird...I was woundering if anyone knows where the O2 sensor wire goes into the cumputer...or if any one has hooked up this type of gauge before and could give me some advise...
Thanks for reading and responding

That will do you almost no good. It'll either show lean when idle and cruising or rich at higher throttle positions. If you want to watch it get an EGT gauge.

And unless you have a power adder or on on the ragged edge NA, you would have little use for either gauge (other than trouble shooting).

I would advise you to get a transmission temp gauge instead.

Well, an a/f ratio gauge would tell you if there isn't enough fuel at WOT throttle. I've seen friends that have those gauges run lean on WOT, but they have a fuel pressure regulator and kinda need the gauge to adjust the fuel.

If it don't run, don't drive it,

I'm still looking for a way to tap the wire going from the o2....It is really up there and hard to access...does anyone know where the wire feeds to , so that it will be easier to acess?? I'm have difficulty.

okay then trace the wire he talks about to the passenger side wiring harness behind the shock tower along the firewall. It's the biggest wiring harness there. You may need to cut back the wire looming a bit to see the real color of the wire since it fades over time, but you should see it there. That's how I did mine.

under WOT, 13:1 ratio will give you more power.
