i dont even know exactly how they are set up but from what i can tell there are meters that you permanently mount in your vehicle and some you just use for tuning. Im looking for the setup where i can weld a o2 sensor bung into the exhaust screw in the sensor and hook to a hand held meter, then start tuning. Anyone have such a beast, i am trying to get my propane setup tuned.
thanks
Mike

There are several brands out there

PLX (my recommendation)
Innovate Motorsports
Autometer
AEM
Dynojet
FJO
FAST

I'm sure there are more but that's all I know off the top of my head.

Just realized that you're looking to borrow one...I just sold mine not too long ago, sorry :( Might try some of the local motorsports forums if nobody on here has one.

www.azdgforums.com - GTO
www.azfba.org - Camaro/Firebird
www.azgmperformance.com - Self-explanatory
www.azstreetscene.com - Buncha dicks mostly

Again, just the ones that I know off-hand.

It's used to adjust the air/fuel mixture. Here is an article about how to do it with a cheap 1 wire O2 sensor. Also you can adjust the air and fuel screws yourself until it idles smooth. There are 2 screws on the carb. Screw them all the way in, back them out a turn and start the motor. Back them out another half turn at a time until it idles smoothly. I'm sure Adamster has a better way of doing this though. Also put a half full glass of water on the engine and when there are no waves it's running smooth as can be:

actually i only have one as its a propane mixer not gas carb and i can do it by sound, smell and how its running but im looking to get it tuned as good as i can. After a few trips i'm sure ill get it dialed in. runs great i'm just looking for mileage.
