I'm running an LC-1 and it hooked up pretty easy (is also pre-configured). I got it because I trusted that the recalibration would work well. Once a year, or if I'm working on the exhaust I recalibrate it. I've been happy with it. I also got their analog gauge which is nice for tuning, it's a lot easier to read than digital gauges.

I run the non gauge type AEM wideband with my AEM EMS, and use AEM's serial gauge to display AFR or a bunch of other things. Obviously the AEM WBO2's are in the wizard too.

Get a current gen Tech Edge or Innovate one and don't bother wasting time and money on anything else.
Everything else consumer grade (PLX, Zeitronix, AEM, etc.) is not accurate or/and slow ...
Stay away from PLX and Zeitronix - these are famous for not being accurate - sometimes the real AFR could be a whole point off what those controller display.
The AEM one is ok with accuracy but very slow/lagged - you don't want that either

Here is the result of one wideband controller shootout. You can find other tests too but the outcome is pretty much the same. Get Innovate or Tech Edge and stay away from the rest.

not to mention that the LC-1 sensors are dirt cheap to replace.

AEM replacement sensors are dirt cheap too. No calibration required.

Should be fine. The AEM has pre-loaded sensor configuration for all Honda intake air temp sensors.
