WEGO II Wide-Band Exhaust Gas Oxygen Sensor Interface Installation Instructions

1. Turn off the ignition switch before proceeding. 2. Select a convenient mounting location for the Bosch sensor. In general, the sensor should be mounted as close to the exhaust valve or exhaust manifold as practical. When choosing a mounting location, allow several inches clearance for the sensor wire harness. The wire harness must exit straight out from the sensor. Do not loop the harness back onto the sensor body. The sensor responds to oxygen pressure. Excessive backpressure will cause a reading error. For turbocharged applications, you must mount the sensor downstream of the turbo. 3. For temporary use during dyno tuning, you can mount the Bosch wide-band sensor in place of one of the original equipment rear oxygen sensors (after the catalytic converter). You can also use a sniffer in the tailpipe. For permanent mounting, an 18 x 1.5 mm weld nut must be welded onto the exhaust pipe. After welding, run an 18 x 1.5 mm tap through the threads. Failure to clean the threads may result in sensor damage. Note that most automotive muffler shops are familiar with oxygen sensor weld nut installation on custom pipes. Do not install the sensor until after the free air calibration procedure described in the following section. Always use an anti-seize lubricant such as Permatex 133A on the sensor threads. 4. Install the WEGO II unit. The WEGO II unit should be mounted where the LCD display will be visible during testing. You can secure the WEGO II unit with Velcro tape strips. 5. Connect the Bosch sensor to the 6 pin mating connector on the WEGO II wire harness. 6. Refer to Figure 1. Connect the black WEGO II wire to frame ground using the supplied ring terminal. Try to use an existing wire harness ground location. Do not extend the WEGO II ground wire or ground the WEGO II to the battery minus terminal or to the engine. 7. Connect the red WEGO II wire to switched +12 volt power. You can usually find switched +12V power at an accessory fuse on the fuse block. You can use the supplied fuse tap and 3/16″ female crimp terminal for this purpose
