The AEM is accurate-ish at the display, but the one I have used I found to be off by about 0.5 at the 0-5v analog output, using a narrowband sensor as a reference.

No problems with the LC-1, here.

I only have experience with the AEM and LC-1.

I love my LC-1, Ive used it on multiple cars with multiplt sensors and it feels very consistent, although Ive never done any objective benchmarking.
Ive tried tuning by an AEM and found it very frustrating due to its update speed, but thats all I can say about it for sure.

I too judge the accuracy of my sensors by how they feel.

LC-1 showed up last week, VEI today. Installed the wideband but all the wires are sitting in the footwell, need to pick up some wire before the fun starts. What gauge wires do I need and is radio shack an OK source?

I used wires from my garbage vacuum cleaner

I routed the wires directly from the battery to the center console and use a relay that turns the gauge on when the key is on acc. Later i added a button that allows me to turn it off manually and turn it on manually which is very useful when trying to get an idea whats up during cranking or if the gauge glitched and needed a restart (turn off turn on).

Had a LC-1, dumped it for a UEGO after getting pissed at it constantly going into an error condition after lean spikes. Tried to downgrade firmware and it ---- itself after running for about an hour. Causing me to waste a day that I used to tow the car out to somewhere I could tune it. To lazy to recover it with a JTAG.

UEGO was completely plug and play and analog output is within .1 of the displayed output. It does refresh noticeably slower than the LC-1 though.

I've been running my LC1 for over a year now, i've trashed 1 sensor due to running pig rich but other than that, i havent had a single problem. Could it be my direct connection to the battery while many others are sharing 12 volt sources between the radio and the lights and whatever else?

LC-1 + VEI = WIN


Gauge pillar doesn't look as bad in person, color is slightly off but nothing like what the flash makes it out to be.

If you consider crimping and soldering to be hard, I guess 10. It worked the first time and the gauge matches LogWorks...so I give it a 2.
