    Look under the car and find the Catalytic converter.
    Just before the cat you'll see what looks like a piece of pipe welded to the downpipe with a couple of wires poking out; that's it.
    Be sure you hold the wire to your test rig reasonably tight and then shut the door on it or you're likely to either hook it on something or drive over it which can be a bit "interesting" if you do.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    You may not have one in a NZ car, if it has the 130hp UK spec. engine.

    My son has a system that he hooks up to the exhaust outlet and drapes a cord down the side of the car and back through the passengers side window which is attached to a meter.
    I understand it's not all that cheap a set up as it has a Lambda sensor fitted at the tail end (A$395) plus lead, plug and read out gauge.
    If you just need your air/fuel ratios, I'd suggest finding a properly set up tuner or speed shop to do it for you.
    If you aren't running a cat and/or running LRP or Avgas, this puts a limit on the life expectancy of the sensor which is why you may have already had a price to do it that seems out of proportion to what seems to be the job.
