Default wideband O2 sensor

Anybody using the PLX Devices M-300 Wide Band Oxygen Sensor Kit M300 Tune. I was just wondering how accurate it is and how satisfied you are with it. It is the cheapest one that I can find, so that is why I am asking. Gotta get something to help to tune my car.

I paid $175 shipped for my LC-1. How much is the PLX?

isn't it close to $300, with that big *** box for a gauge? You can get an LC-1 and autometer gauge that will actually look nice and get the same thing for around $240-260 shipped.

I have the AEM Uego Gauge and Controller, got it brand new off ebay for $258 shipped. So many people are running the LC-1 I see no reason to not go with it though specially if you can find a good price.

dont leave out techedge. www.wbo2.com

it can be much cheaper if you dont need flash and logos. you can build the basic kit for $145 and the cost of the sensor. the display is extra. Pretty sweet system, very versatile if you just need it for an EMS.

Man, that's a lot of crap to wade through.

I ended up with a Zetronix ZT-2 for less than $300. It does datalogging via a laptop and graphs RPM vs AFR. Soon, I'll be getting the boost sensor so I can add that to the graph.

For now, the RPM/AFR is all I need to be able to street tune to a safe level. Gauges? I don't need no stinking gauges!

The Zeitronix is hot. I will be using that instead of conventional gauges as well.
