AEM has released its new Wideband UEGO air/fuel ratio Controller Gauge that uses the Bosch 4.9 LSU sensor (PN 30-4110). The 30-4110 wideband UEGO AFR gauge will supersede the 30-4100 AEM Wideband UEGO Gauge that uses the Bosch 4.2 LSU sensor and the 30-4100 will be discontinued as soon as existing inventory is exhausted. Inventory on the 30-4100 is anticipated to be exhausted sometime in August 2014. Expanded availability of the 4.9 LSU sensor facilitated the change to this new gauge. For the foreseeable future all other AEM Wideband air/fuel products will remain unchanged and will continue to utilize the 4.2 LSU sensor.
The new 30-4110 Wideband UEGO Controller gauge is cosmetically identical to the original 30-4100 gauge.
The Bosch 4.9 LSU sensor has a faster light off time and draws less current than the 4.2 LSU sensor used with AEM’s 30-4100 Wideband UEGO Controller Gauge. The 4.9 LSU sensors feature the same fuel compatibility as the 4.2 LSU and NEVER require free-air calibration when used with AEM’s 30-4110 Wideband UEGO AFR Gauge.
The new 30-4110 Wideband UEGO Controller Gauge has the same display range and includes the same calibrated scale on its 0-5v output (10-20 AFR), for data logging or closed-loop feedback control when used with a standalone ECU.
The 30-4110‘s 4.9 LSU sensor uses a different connector than the connector used with the 4.2 LSU sensors included with the original 30-4100 gauge controller. The sensors are not interchangeable between the two gauge controllers in any way, including changing connectors on the gauges.
AEM’s digital gauge-type controllers feature a LED display and sweeping LED “needle” that changes colors as AFR changes from rich to lean, a 52mm (2-1/16″) gauge housing that fits in most gauge pods, and they can be remotely mounted virtually anywhere. AEM’s legendary Wideband UEGO (‘you-way-go’) Air/Fuel Ratio Controller Gauges unite accuracy, speed and control with an easy to read, digital interface. AEM created the first wideband controller and gauge combination in 2004.

The 2013 and 2014 Dodge Dart is the auto manufacturer’s first compact car since the Dodge Neon was discontinued back in 2005. The new generation Dodge Dart is based on a Fiat platform that has been widened and given a longer wheelbase. Further Fiat technology was imported by the Chrysler Group to power the new Dodge Dart. The Dart’s available 1.4-liter Multiair turbocharged engine can also be found in the Fiat 500 Abarth. However, the Dodge Dart 1.4L turbo engine has been tuned to make more power than its Italian cousin.
The 1.4L Multiair turbo engine found in the 2013 and 2014 Dodge Dart is rated at 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque from the factory. While down on power when compared to other turbo compacts, like the Ford Fiesta ST or Hyundai Veloster Turbo, the Dodge Dart 1.4L turbo does beat them both in EPA rated highway MPG. Here to lessen the performance gap between the 2013 to 2014 Dodge Dart 1.4L turbo and comparable turbo compacts is AEM cold air intake 21-722C and 21-722P.
At AEM Induction Systems our engineers design our intake systems as a fully integrated component of the vehicle. Improved airflow is only part of the power equation. The 21-722C and 21-722P cold air intake systems relocate the air filter behind the front bumper to provide a cool dense source of air before being forced into the engine by the turbocharger. Cold Air Intake 21-722C and 21-722P come equipped with a non-oiled AEM Dryflow air filter, number 21-203DK, which delivers high airflow while providing excellent filtration and engine protection. The mandrel bent aluminum cold air intake tube is offered in two durable finishes to satisfy personal preference. 21-722C features a charcoal gray powdercoat finish, and 21-722P offers a bright, mirror-like finish.
All of the design features of the 21-722C and 21-722P cold air intake systems are tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery in the lower, and most used, RPM range. On the dyno, 21-722C and 21-722P produced an estimated additional 6 horsepower at 3000 rpm and an equally important 9 pound-feet of torque at 3000 rpm over the factory system. In addition to increasing horsepower, lowering restriction and increasing airflow will reduce turbo lag and help the Dodge Dart’s turbo to spool up quicker. This in turn improves acceleration and drivability.
The 21-722C and 21-722P AEM cold air intake system is an excellent performance upgrade for your 2013 and 2014 Dodge Dart models with the Multiair 1.4-liter, 4-cylinder, intercooled and turbocharged engine. This is a complete Dodge Dart cold air intake system including all the necessary hardware and step by step installation instructions. To provide peace of mind, AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

The Nissan Juke is a sporty turbocharged crossover SUV from the Nissan Motor Corporation. The standard Nissan Juke is equipped with a 1.6-liter direct injected turbocharged engine rated at 188 horsepower. In 2013 Nissan introduced a NISMO (Nissan’s motorsports and performance division) tuned Juke and cranked up power output another 9 horsepower and 7 lb-ft of torque.
The small, but energetic, 1.6L turbocharged engine found in 2013, and 2014 Nissan Juke and Juke NISMO models makes for a fun-to-drive crossover SUV, but reducing air intake restriction can help this turbo engine perform even better. Owners seeking some extra boost in the power department can now install the 69-7079TS K&N performance short ram intake system. By replacing the maze of air ducting, stock air filter box, and disposable car air filters, K&N intake systems are able to reduce restriction and increase power.
69-7079TS from K&N is precision-engineered to be a simple-to-install performance add-on. The backbone of this intake system is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube which helps to minimize restriction, allowing your engine to breathe easier. The larger than stock 2-3/4 inch intake tube is mated to the original equipment throttle body with a reinforced stepped coupler. A durable silver color powder coated finish is applied to the tube, providing an attractive appearance under the hood that will look great for years to come.
K&N equips the 69-7079TS with the oversized RC-5128 chrome-top reusable air filter, providing a large surface to help increase airflow without sacrificing engine protection. The reusable air filter is made with K&N’s famous high-flow filter media so it’s a washable and reusable air filter that can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. A heat shield shrouds the air filter under the hood, helping to deflect engine heat away from incoming air and this short ram intake also retains the factory fresh air inlet.
All of the design features of the 69-7079TS performance air intake system work in harmony to deliver increased performance. On the dyno, 69-7079TS produced an estimated additional 7.23 horsepower at 5936 rpm and an equally beneficial 6.32 pound-feet of torque at 4037 rpm over the factory air filter box system when installed on an otherwise stock 2013 Nissan Juke NISMO 1.6L turbo.
The 69-7079TS performance air intake system is an excellent upgrade for 2013, and 2014 Nissan Juke and Juke NISMO models with the 1.6L turbo engine. With simple to follow instructions and no need to make any other modifications to the vehicle, you’ll be on the road in approximately 90 minutes with more horsepower under your right foot.
If all that weren’t enough, K&N backs the 69-7079TS with the industry-leading K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®. If you’re looking to bring your 2013 and 2014 Nissan Juke S or SV up to par with the NISMO edition, or looking to take your Juke NISMO to the next level, look no further than the 69-7079TS Typhoon short ram intake system.
