The NZ VN commies didn't have the o2 sensor fitted in the exhaust. if i fit the o2 sensor (the wiring is there for it) will it work or will i need to change the memcal also

I too live in NZ and have no oxy sensor but want one someone help us.
Strangly winaldl still gives me an O2 reading must be a calculated value from the memcal or ecu.Probably goes better without the O2 sensor changing the fuel mix anyway but I want lean cruize god dammit.

would need to know the code on the memcal to see. Some NZ calibrations have it disabled but the data list still shows it.

yep thats a specific NZ cal, made for leaded fuel
you will need to get an aussie cal to get the oxy sensor working.
do you know anyone with an eprom programmer to read off that memcal?
i dont have it on file , be nice to add to my collection
