I usually hang out on the e23 and e24 boards but saw this link and followed it....

As an Introduction, I'm running a 745 (euro turbo) at 1.2 bar (16 - 18 psi) as a daily driver and a 85 ///M6 euro as a sunny day car. The 85 745 has 235 000 on the clock and the ///M6 has 61 000.

FWIW... Once the 2 cars are above 20 mph .... The 745 is much faster... 350+ hp vs the ///M6 285

Anyway... My recommendation for AFR meters is the HALMETER AFR30 ( It is more expensive than the one listed in the previous discussions, but IMHO much better.

It is better because it has a 30 segment LED display, divided into 10 segments in lean range, 10 in the stoich range and 10 in the rich range.

I have been using it for about 4 years, have had no problens with it and have used it at boost pressures above 1.8 bar.

Bottom line.... I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Regards All

I have admired many messages and believe you are the real deal.

Good to see you get around.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the compliment .... I just try to relate what I've learned from what I've touched.

But if the truth be know, I suspect I've learned more on these boards, than I have added ...

However... It is a bit scary just how much of what I have posted comes back around as the seasons turn.... but like everybody else, I sometimes make mistakes, so if I say something dumb, let me know...

I guess I 've had blinders on... How long has this group been going ?

Regards all

about two months.

They wanted to try a forum with specific SC and TURBO issues.

That keeps the message churn down on the other boards and provides a better search for information.

We seem to do lots of NOS here but that is because the systems get interchanged alot.

Looking forward to your interchange of information.

It's a really good AFR metering device you can build yourself. I will use this as a tuning aid, exchanging it for a normal cheap gauge once the car is tuned. Then again, I might just work on too many cars....

Enjoy the url.
