Subject: 1982 16V turbo conversion w/ CIS injection

I converted my 82 base 900 w/ an 85 16V turbo engine. I removed all of teh LH injection parts and retained my CIS injection. The trouble is, the engine "breathes" too well for the single wire oxygen (O2) sensor to 'Pulse' at idle. If the engine is run hard, then idled, I retain the pulse at 34-45. However after about one minute the O2 sensor cools off and the pulse goes to the fail safe of 60. I want to run a 3 wire O2 sensor, but need an idea on where to run the power from (what amperage does it draw?). If anybody has an old tired H-engine non turbo (B-engines need an upgrade to the ignition system) this is a fairly straight-forward conversion, and really adds life to an old car!!!
