This other approach is recommended for all applications with original equipment oxygen sensors. Remember that with these applications, closed loop AFR control in the ECM will counteract any attempt to change AFR values at idle and part throttle. Use this approach to keep the existing AFR values commanded by the ECM at idle and part throttle, but make corrections for engine modifications at wide open throttle (60% to 100% TPS columns).
In the WEGO™ software, select Fuel Percent Correction Display and set the desired wide open throttle AFR target (typically 12.8-13.2 for gasoline). The table will show the fuel corrections required to achieve the target AFR value. Start the PC program and open the Excel spreadsheet.
The Tenma® unit is adjustable from 3-15 volts and should be set to 13.8 volts when used to power multiple WEGO™ units.
It can also be used to float charge a 12 volt battery.

Dyno operators that have Microsoft Office® with Excel®, can directly copy and paste data from the WEGO™ software to an Excel® spreadsheet and then copy and paste from the Excel® spreadsheet into the Dynojet® Power Commander® software program.
We have prepared sample Excel® spreadsheets that you can download and use for this purpose. Before you try using this approach, you need to make a realistic assessment of your skill level as far as using Excel®.
NOTE: While we cannot provide tech support for Excel® related software performance issues or help you with individual tuning files, we do however kindly appreciate all comments, suggestions, and feedback about our new approach to data transfer. If you have any feedback regarding this topic, please click here and contact us with your opinion anytime.

Daytona Sensors™ Dual Channel WEGO™ IIID units are intended for connection to an existing data acquisition system for dyno test lab or professional racing use. These units do not include an LED display or any internal data logging capability. They have 0-5V analog AFR outputs. The analog outputs are linearly scaled with 0V=10.0 AFR and 5V=20.0 AFR (the useful range is 10.3 to 19.5 AFR) and are compatible with industry standard 0-5V analog inputs on most data acquisition systems.
Thanks to our 'Special Pricing', it allows equipping a V8 race engine with individual cylinder AFR monitoring for under $2,100.00! For more details, download the WEGO™ IIID '8-Pack' Tech Note shown on the right.
In 2005, 'The Professor' Warren Johnson was the first racer to use Daytona Sensors™ WEGO™ systems for individual cylinder AFR monitoring.

Logging data with 250 RPM increments is very difficult. The problem is obtaining enough samples in each cell to calculate a reasonable average when engine RPM is rapidly changing. In most cases, you can find a basic PC table that has 500 RPM increments.
If your application requires a PC tuning file with table rows in 250 RPM increments, you can use our "Advanced" spreadsheet versions (sample Excel® files in the above section can be downloaded).
These allow copy and paste of fuel table data from and to the PC software with table rows in 250 RPM increments while still using WEGO™ data with table rows in 500 RPM increments.
The advanced spreadsheets calculate interpolated fuel correction values for the intermediate 250 RPM rows.

We recommend grounding the vehicle to the dyno frame while in operation. You can use a length of 16 AWG wire with one end secured to the dyno frame and the other end equipped with a heavy duty alligator clip that is attached to the vehicle frame or other vehicle ground point. The dyno frame or chassis must be connected to building electrical ground in accordance with National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. Improper grounding will cause serious problems.

If grounding the vehicle is not convenient, you can use Daytona Sensors Part #115011 grounded sensor, Part #115012 six wire extension cable with ground connection, and Part #115013 ground wire kit for installation at the WEGO™ (see below). Please refer to the Grounded Sensor Tech Note at the right for full details.

Dynojet® Dyno owners can easily interface any of the Daytona Sensors™ WEGO™ systems to an Dynojet® Dyno equipped with the Dynojet® analog module.
Dyno operators can interface the WEGO™ IIID to display and chart two channels of AFR data along with the other dyno data in the Dynojet® WinPEP® software program.

This approach is recommended for only for applications without original equipment oxygen sensors where you want to change AFR values. In the WEGO™ software, select AFR Data Display. The table will show the actual AFR values logged by the system. Start the PC program and open the Excel® spreadsheet.

WEGO™ systems will work with most hydrocarbon fuels including Ethanol, E85, and Methanol. Newer WEGO™ units with display and data logging allow uploading a fuel type selection with the WEGO™ Log software including user defined fuels. WEGO™ III and IV units operate over the 0.70-1.33 Lambda range. WEGO™ 5 units operate over the 0.50-1.33 Lambda range. Corresponding Air/Fuel Ratio (AFR) values are shown here at the right.
The current product version of WEGO™ software supports all 'Copy and Paste' operations. Some of our early versions do not have this functionality. Spreadsheets for use with the WEGO™ system and PC have default filenames containing "WEGO_PC." The first type (with "AFR" in the filename) has corrections based on WEGO™ AFR data. The second type (with "Fuel" in the filename) is based on WEGO™ fuel percent corrections. Standard spreadsheet table rows are in 500 RPM increments. For PC tuning files that utilize table rows with 250 RPM increments, use the 'Advanced' spreadsheets and read the additional notes below. Use the following guidelines to choose between "AFR" or "Fuel" versions:

WEGO™ Dynojet® Interface
Vehicles operated on a chassis dyno will generate considerable electrostatic charge. The Bosch® LSU 4.2 wide-band exhaust gas oxygen sensor used with the WEGO™ requires a ground connection to the sensor body in order to dissipate electrostatic charge. If the sensor body is not grounded, electrostatic charge will build up until a discharge to the sensor element occurs. This may damage the sensor and input circuitry on the WEGO™ unit.
