Short exhaust branches will negate the effectiveness of individual sensors. Dutra duals are short.

When developing EFI I'd like to know oxygen content for each cylinder. Another data point I'd like to know is the water temperature of each cylinder - if that data can be collected. If the cylinders aren't cooling equally temperature differences will effect results. I don't know whether temp variances can be resolved on the slant six - if that is actually the case. Some inline sixes tend to operate warmer on the rear cylinders. That's true with the Cummins B series, many BMW inline sixes can run hotter in the rear when the cooling system is low on coolant, not a problem normally - when the head gasket fails due to low coolant level its usually toward the rear

folks do monitor each cylinder's exhaust temperature as a tuning and engine performance aid.
