    What is the most commonly used stand alone ECU for a Ecotech 2.2 engine? Was also wondering if you have to run an O2 sensor on an EFI set-up? Reason I ask I’m told when you run race fuel it ruins the O2 sensor?

    I dont run an O2 sensor and I dont run race gas with my 2.2Eco. $3.00 a gallon is way cheaper, I ran Premium PMEX at my last race !

    most people run mefi or the factory controller.the mefi,you can run in open loop (no o2).The oe system is fine, but it runs better with o2.Also oe system is a lot less money.
    Any fuel with lead will ruin the O2 in short order.Questions?give me a call, Steve Humphrey 909 910 3867

    It's the lead in race fuel that clogs the O2 sensor. You can run a O2 sensor with a larger heater that will last longer. Saying the above, narrow band O2 is almost useless in a racing situation. Narrowband takes quite some time to react to transitional states (accl or decel). Wideband is the only way to run O2, but requires calibration and regular replacement.
