theres a wide band n narrow band. some wide bands do data loggin capability for those who are boosted or w/e. then theres widebands that dont have data loggin capability but do give u a better reading then a narrowband. a narrowband will just bounce back n forth n look cool

Yeah, a wide band will run you at least $250 and is a great tool for tuning anything running boost, nitrous, or performance tune. They come with their own O2 sensor and many times a data logger. A narrow band uses the stock O2 sensor and really can only tell you 3 things. If your running lean, stock, or rich. It may be able to give you a idea if something is not right in the motor like a bad mass air but it's really only to look cool. Because they dont read as much info, they only cost around $100.
