Default Lambda Sensor sierra 2wd cosworth

Ive just recently changed my intercooler to a rs500 one and replaced the radiator and fitted a new t34 turbo.

It used to run a 4x4 intercooler with a t34 turbo but have now got the bigger housing one

Ive been told I will have to get it re mapped and need to get a lambda sensor put in??

Any suggestions?

Forgot to say its had stage 3 and running dark greens

Thanks

I think the lamda sensor suggestion was for a MSD type closed loop conversion. This gives massively improved fuel economy and driveability off boost. You can re-map it without so it's not essential.

L6 is 2WD (Saph) L1 is 3DR, there is no benefit to be had from the L6.

If you want things like CL, WS, ALS, LC etc then you want a L8.

Alot of tuners do like to fit a lambda when live mapping on the road.

Wasted spark is avaliable on the whole family, so L1 and L6 as well.
