Default Noob question: what's the difference between wideband O2 sensor and stock O2 sensor?

Searched in FAQ and did not find.
How much should I be looking to spend to buy one for my uberdata setup?

A wideband is typically a 0-5 volt output for A/F ratio
A narrow band is a 0-1 volt output only good for determining rich or lean condition.

I have an A/F ratio gauge that comes as a package in used turbo kit. Can I use it to monitor my A/F ratio to make sure i'm not running lean? How do I install it?

This is temporary until I get Uberdata on my car.

No, it won't help you. Reason: What the narrowband O2 sensor considers "rich": Anything lower than 14:1 AFR, is actually waay too lean for a turbo engine under full load. So whether your AFR was a dangerous 14:1 or a safe 11.5:1, the AFR gauge would show you the same thing.

Would a vortech 12:1 FMU with stock injectors be safe enough for 7-8 psi boost?

Yes, I'm planning to go to uberdata in a couple of months, but for now I only have time to install the turbo kit itself with vortech FMU. (btw I just bought some DSM 450cc, it'll help, right?)

I asked the question because I'm afraid of running too lean and blew my motor.

For these wideband 02 sensors, such as a PLX M300, can it be used in both wide and narrow simultaneously? Showing you your AFR while communicating with the ECU (necessary, right?)?
