Just a few quick questions
Hello there, I just had a few quick and easy questions

I am installing a browns gas system on a 1999 VW beetle 2L gas

1. Is there anything else that i will need besides the browns gas generator?

2. Do i need a "MAP/MAF" sensor?

3. Do i need an "EFIE"?

Thank you in advance

Hi Meat.

You need to do a little research too. Blush

Find out if you have an o2 sensor and what type (narrow band, wide band or air/fuel sensor).

I suspect you have a narrow band, in which case you'd do better with an EFIE.

From what I have found, it is a 4 wire O2 sensor. And based upon what i have read, that is a narrow band.

In theory, the more sensors you can tweak, the better your results. The o2 sensor is probably the most important tho.

RE: Just a few quick questions
I have 2 sensors on my car, pre and post cat. The Precat is what deals with the ECM. According to the Haynes manual, the postcat only checks to make sure the cat is functioning and has no effect on the ECM.

Do i need a dual EFIE or just a single?
