So you reccomend them?? They have a website?
I highly recommend them. SpitFire is used to dyno'g 300-1200whp vehicles, and definately know what they are doing. I think they have a website but I am not really sure. When I dyno'd he let me do the runs, and let me cut off wherever my redline was.

They will do it the way you want it done, not the way they want it done (eventhough usually they are two of the same)

Spitfire is VERY well known for their accurate dyno numbers, their race cars, and their ability to build and tune race cars.
It looks like they stuck the wideband O2 sensor up the exhaust pipe. Unless you removed that cats, it's meaningless to take the readings after the cats.

Mark,
I need a AFR but Im not ready to drill and dont want parts removed. I know they have exhaust sniffers for AFR, its not 100% but it gives a general idea.

I suppose it gives a general idea if the cats are dead.

But how is drilling a good idea? It can lead to so many problems later on.

A properly done bung will not have any problems.

When ever you drill into metal that is exposed to the elements, there is always potential for rust, leaks and so on.

Potential yes, but properly treated it will be fine. How do you think cars are rust-proofed? They drill holes and seal them, and that spot never rusts when done properly. Same deal with aftermarket bodywork, etc.

After drilling the hole, I use a high quality stainless steel bungholio.

Where exactly do you drill the whole. Part of my system is ceramic coated.

But even that can leak though over time, no?
