so I'm gonna make the plunge and get a wideband, gotta be safe! but which one?

my choices seem to be either LC-1 with gauge for $290 from innovative, or the AEM with gauge for $280 from flyin miata. I also have my mom's old laptop I could use, which would allow me to get the LC-1 without the gauge for $199? does anyone know of a another option? or somewhere else I could pick up any of these options for cheaper? any big issues with any of these chioces? I'm planning on getting a mspnp within the next year hopefully, if that makes any difference. thanks for the help!

i love my uego. havent had a problem with it since. i dont think many ppl have problems with them unlike the lc-1 that i keep hearing horror stories on. Plus i dont like the fact that you have to take it out every once in a while and free air calibrate it.

uego for 232 shipped on ebay.

any answers about whether or not I can get the LC-1 w/o gauge for any cheaper than $199 at speedware or anywhere else? otherwise I am slightly leaning towards the AEM, although I'd love to log my a/f numbers in a laptop and be able to look at them later, I'd be able to do that with the lc-1, correct?

You can log the AFRs on a laptop with the AEM or the LC1. The LC1 is nice and is probably a little more accurate than the AEM when it is installed correctly. I like my AEM very much though and the install is very simple. Either choice will be a wise one. You can get both the AEM and LC1 from [email protected]

I think you can get it cheaper then 199 without the gauge. As for how to contact him, you gotta go to the vendor section and shoot him a pm.

Hmmmm....

I was at first going to get a Uego. Then hearing all the great things about the LC-1 and its ability to work alongside the MS, I was dead set on it.

What horror stories are we talking about here. I plan on getting my wb02 soon, so any insight on these issues would be awesome.

I read a few of them myself, but still wanted to ask people's opinion. just search for "LC-1" and you'll get a bunch of threads of people asking for help, sounds like its very sensitive to grounding problems?

All the horror stories I've read have been related to people not able to RTFM!! Follow the instructions and the LC-1 shouldn't give problems.
