This is Innovate Motorsports' "Technology for Tuners" Newsletter, Issue #22. These updates are intended to keep you informed of tuning tips, firmware updates, application notes, new product releases, company news, and other useful information.

Why do I need to calibrate the O2 sensor with Innovate products?

The answer is simple.....Accuracy!

Innovate Motorsports is the only wideband O2 device manufacturer on the market that allows the user to field calibrate the O2 sensor. Our patented sensor calibration allows compensation for the two main causes of inaccurate air/fuel ratio data; sensor wear and altitude. The alternative to calibrating your sensor in the field is to rely on the sensor’s Bosch factory calibration. The Bosch factory sensor calibration is done using a fixed atmospheric pressure value that may be incorrect for your location from the start!

MTX Series "Dual Function" Gauges

Coming Soon!

Innovate Motorsports will be releasing a new line of Digital MTX “Dual Function” gauges. The new MTX Series gauges will feature the same design and external features as the MTX Air/Fuel Ratio gauge, but will now display two parameters at once. Our initial launch in October will include:

  • Vacuum/Boost & Shift light
  • Oil Pressure & Oil Temperature
  • Water Temperature & Battery Voltage
  • EGT (EGT is only single function)

Keep checking our website for more details!

We look forward to releasing many new innovative products in the near future!

1" Double Length Weld-in Bung Kits standard in ALL Innovate wideband kits

For the last couple of years you may have noticed that all Innovate Motorsports wideband kits contain a 1" weld-in bung instead of the standard 1/2" bung. The 1" bung will allow the sensor to sit flush with the exhaust just inside the bung therefore eliminating restriction, O2 contamination (from leaded fuel & rich conditions). By doing this will help you in extending the sensors life. Exhaust gas sampling and accuracy is not affected in any way.

We highly recommend the use of the 1" bung for high horsepower and leaded fuel applications.

Here are the part numbers for the 1" Bung & Plug kits:

P/N: 3764, Mild Steel (Standard)

P/N: 3838, Stainless Steel

P/N: 3842, Titanium

*We still carry the 1/2 Bung & Plug kit for those who prefer them.

Tips & Tricks - You CAN be too Rich

Application Note: You CAN be too Rich
By Klaus Allmendinger

Many people with turbochargers believe that they need to run at very rich mixtures. The theory is that the excess fuel cools the intake charge and therefore reduces the probability of knock. It does work in reducing knock, but not because of charge cooling. The following little article shows why. Click here to read more...
