Default AEM UEGO Install

Here are my pics of the AEM UEGO install. The UEGO is up and running, but I still have some things to complete, so this install is still progessing and a couple of things still needs to be complete before its complete.

UPDATE: I finally have a set of headers coming in, probably later this week, so I'll get the bung installed on the drive side header and then complete the UEGO install.

Step1)So the AEM UEGO needs a 10-18V power source and a ground for this install, and it has a couple more wires for other use. Like the blue wire can be used for logging to a hyperterminal or any AFR software. So, I had to think about what I'm going to use as my power and ground source, so I reverted to the forums and got my question answered by lucky131969(Thanks lucky). Below is the schematic of were its going:

I'll utilize the YEL and BLK wire for power and ground, I'm also going to change out the 20A fuse to a 10A to meet AEM UEGO requirements.


Step2) Pic of where the C206 connector is at: (Now you don't have to take out the fuse box like I did, I was trying to look for it(trace it), but should've looked elsewhere prior to taking it out)


Step3)For the next step, I essentially took the whole interior apart, and I followed the "How to install a HUD" guide to complete this step. This is the only way I knew, to route the wires from the UEGO unit to connector C206. This is what the car looked like after I took the interior apartThe arrows show the path I'll be taking the cables to the passenger side. I even zip tied to what looked like air tubes)


Step4) In order for the cables to reach, you'll have to stop at a local hardware store and buy 5 foot long wires, for the stock wires couldn't reach to connector C206. I also used shrink tubes to make thing look a little cleaner(wrap it with electrical tape and your ready to route).



Step5) Once you have the cables routed, unplug connector C206, and you'll see three wires(yellow, black, and orange) all taped together. I wired red(UEGO) to the YLW, and black(UEGO) to the BLK wire and shrink tubed them. I also put electrical tape around the orange wire and then taped it to the other two wires(I also plugged it in and turn the key to either ACC/ON to test to see if it worked):


Step6)Now its time for the bung connector. You'll have to drill a 1" hole in your firewall, and I've decided to drill right below the hood release. NOTE: To drill, I just unscrewed the driver wheel well to gain access for drilling. Also, for now, I left the bung connector sit on top of my motor until I get my exhaust so I can finish the routing. Once your down there you can imagine how to route it and the wires can be zipped tie to existing wires so it doesn't hit anything else.

Driver Wheel Well:


Driver interior under the hood release cables:


Step7)Its time to drill the pod into the pillar. For this I used painters tape to hold the pod onto the pillar and then drilled by following manufactures specs for the plugs, and drilled a 1" hole for the wires.



Step8) You can now start buttoning everything back up. Once you have your dash in, you can install the drivers A-Pillar and plug in the UEGO and your ready to go. I'll be taking more pictures once I finishing the rest of the install, like the exhaust and the blue data cable.

Partially Finished pics of the install:

Thanks, since I know when my exhaust is coming in. I've scheduled a tune on June 1st. I cannot wait to drive the car.

maybe it's the camera angle but that guage looks really close to your steering wheel. Looks like your hand might hit it.

It is the camera angle. I tested that prior to finding the placement. Damn camera....

Almost my man. I got the hardest part done, which is installing the headers. I'll button up everything else tonight, put in fresh oil, and start it up again. New vid will come soon.

Enjoyed reading your thread. I just had cam/headers installed on my 2000 FRC. Looking forward to seeing/hearing how yours turns out after the tune.

Default Update

Ok...the tune is in. Based on the graph I got 416hp/360ft-lb, WC corrected. Overall, I'm pretty happy about the numbers. I'm going to take it back to get the tuning finalized sometime later this month. Sorry about the pic, I had to take the picture on an angle so the flash doesn't white it out.



PS...I have a bunch of pics to add to this thread that will pretty much finish it.

Very nice numbers Mike. So How do you like the whiplash ll overall. How is it on the street. Red light to red light. Did you ever get your throttle body ported. Cant wait to see another vid of it....Good Job.......

Do you know what kind of dyno it was when they tuned it.

Very very soon. I'm taking car back this week to the tuner to fix the idle. Though, I'll take a video of it tonight and put it up. I just love the sound when it idles correctly. Talk about turning heads during a stop light.

Also I had purchased and put on the XSPower LT headers. I was getting sick of running the car without cats, and the wideband bung placement is great.
