All S197's came with narrow band 02 sensors.  In order to get a more accurate reading, you will need to put in a wide band sensor.  If you don't have cats you can use one of the rear O2 sensor bungs. If you do have cats you'll need a new bung welded in upstream of the cats. Doesn't matter if it's driver or passenger side.

Yep, an AFG requires you to have to put in a wide band, and if you have cats you are going to have to put in a new bung upsteam from the cat.

Couldn't you install a o2 sensor bypass or a module that bypasses it some how for more HP?

That device connects to the original 02 sensor.  So, it doesn't answer the original question.
