lol, have fun buying Innovate products from an unauthorized dealer on eBay. They are not known for being the most reliable products. If it were my car I'd shell out the extra $25 for an AEM UEGO.

Stop trying to cheap out on one of the most important items that you need on my forced induction car. Seriously I paid $175 shipped from my MXT-L from Amazon and I had it within 16 hours of ordering it. If $75 breaks your budget then you probably can not afford the new motor when you blow your old one over a faulty used wideband.

I meant that in the way that the AEM (new) was a better idea than the MXT-L because they can apparently be faulty. Sorry I should've worded that better. How has yours been reliability wise?

EDIT: looks like the AEM can be had for $1 more from an authorized distributer on eBay! hahaha. So I guess its just the age old question.. Innovate or AEM. I know I sure do see a lot more AEM units around. http://www.ebay.com/itm/AEM-6-IN-1-D...-/271218293777

or you could just be a self sufficient human being and do a quick search about them, since we had at least a couple extensive threads comparing them.

I used both and liked em both. I like the AEM more for a little bit easier set up, no calibration required, and faster heat up. The downside being slower response time and "averaging" of values because it can't keep up with rapid changes.

Alright I'll do some more research. The wideband isn't first priority right now. Before that happens I need a downpipe that isn't $400. And also a ECU. If you know about either of these (USED) please let me know.

On another note, this oil/coolant line kit seems decent, and I have seen a few other builds use something that looks very similar: http://www.ebay.com/itm/230937684770

Is this one a yes or should I buy the $560 lines from Expensive Shop I've Never Heard Of because they are the most important thing in your turbo system you idiot?

^see what I did there? I was sarcastically quoting all of you. Which is what you usually do to me. I'm a funny guy.

A person would be foolish to do either. The most optimal solution lies in between these two extremes.

That's basically the plan. Isn't that the goal of noobs everywhere?

Anyway, on a serious note, I think the AEM will be my choice of wideband.

Any more oil line comments?

Any leads on a used 1.6 T25 downpipe? Used MS (long shot)?
