Default Best price for LC-1?

I sold my AEM UEGO to Jfornachon with the turbo kit as the software for the Quarterhorse tuner for the Ford EEC only communicates with the Innovate LC-1. I hated to do it, as it worked flawlessly, not to mention taking a hit and then having to buy another one that does the same thing.

Who has the best price on these nowadays? Anyone have a good used one for sale?

eBay search lc-1. Best one was like $40 off. I'm getting one from there when the DIYPNP is finished.

diyautotune has good pricing on them as well as great customer service to back up the product.

Just a reminder:

AEM is one year warranty, Innovate is only six months...

On the flip side, the AEM unit cannot be calibrated. The Innovate can. Granted, I have only run into one AEM unit that needed to be calibrated, most others have worked fine.

BEGI also sells the LC-1.

I got mine from Begi, Stephanie was very helpful and am very happy with it.

there were few wires that could be eliminated though. 2 wires both for ground just for the lc 1? why not join them together in the beginning?

I have mine sitting inside the car right in front of the shifter undearneath that plastic, there is just enough room for the LC1 unit to fit there. Then i have my calibration button and the status light on the light panel by my feet. I removed the 4 bolts holding the rubber boot for the shifter and put the sensor through there.

heres few images of the wiring i did in my house.

used aluminum tape to make the gauges very tight. Worked great.

Bought my LC1 from Begi, a trustworthy seller for 230 WITH a gauge.

180 from Begi without the gauge.
