Ok I bougt an AEM wideband and it came with this fancy little o2 sensor. But I have Borla headers and a stromung catback and really dont want to mess those up. Would I be able to just tap into the current wideband sensor that is in the car now? Or will this show different readings?

Nope.. Can't be done. WB sensors work way different than NB sensors. It's not a matter of reading the voltage. WBs use a special control module that does a whole bunch of fancy schmancy stuff to determine the O2 levels. A few hits on Google on how WideBand O2 work should do a better job of explaining it.

Your going to need to have an O2 bung welded into your exhaust path.

most widebands monitor current and your wideband controller converts it into useable info.
