off topic: you wouldn't happen to know a good site to learn about tuning with a wb02 would you?

Personally I'd choose the PLX devices M300 because it's fairly small and can be easily mounted on your steering column etc. for easy viewing. I'll actually probably be picking one up within the next few weeks.

the plx wbo2 didn't blow up the engine, poor tuning did.

whether the poor tuning was a result of incorrect information from the plx wbo2 is a different subject.

common sense generally keeps people from blowing engines up...

The PLX M-300 and the Innovate Motorsports LM-1 are both fine pieces, both of which I offer for sale, both of which I have first hand knowledge of (just like anything else I sell, if its crap, I dont sell it).

I have a techedge, as do several other of the guys from PGMFI that don't wander over here much.

I bought the kit. The best part was that it was cheap ($230 including sensor, display and shipping). Assembly wasn't that hard, but took a while. Cable was a bitch...

The only thing that I think the techedge has that the others don't is a provision for logging EGTs. This brings me to a point at which I can preach...

Worrying about the display on your wideband O2 is ------- retarded. Worry more about the datalogging capabilities of the unit (or how it will interface with the datalogging capabilities of your ECU) because datalogging will tell you a thousand times more than your eye ever will.

They're all very good quality units (even the AEM) and any would be a great investment.

Preach on...PLX provides the simplicity, display, sensor support, and outputs for ECU datalogging, as well.

i noticed the PLX is plug and play, no calibration needed vs Innovative you need to calibrate.

now what happens to the PLX when a o2 sensor performance starts to deteriate and theres no way to recalibrate like the Innovative LM-1 model? if thats the case i think thats one pro the Innovative has going for it.

thoughts, questions, experiences welcomed...
