Lamda Sensor Tuning

Hello GSers!

I am writing from Greece. One day, reading the forums I found that somebody (as fas I remember he was from Europe), had built a kit that had to do with calibration of air and temperature for the BMW GS models. However I don't remember the name of the kit, in order to find it.

Does my text reminds anybody something?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

The lambda sensor (or oxygen sensor) can only be "tuned" by something like a Innovate Motorsports LC-1 which replaces the stock Narrowband O2 and in effect creates a new "calibration" of AFR (air/fuel ratio).

Something like a BoosterPlug changes the air temperature as seen by your ECU.

I think I have a fellow Danish countryman, that makes a resistor kit. Not sure what it is called, but it in effect does the same as a booster plug.

The BoosterPlug is made by Jens Lyck a Dane ... And I think there is another guy too, the Power FRK maybe ...

Thanks a lot!

There is a ton written here on the topic of Booster Plug (et al) installations. Use the search for a complete list but here are a few threads to start with.

BoosterPlug review

Mark Vernact's Accelerator Module

Booster Plug NTC sensor location?

Have fun!
