Default Which wideband to choose?

Right now im looking to purchase wideband o2 sensor. Ive got it narrowed down to three that i would like to choose from. I was thinking of picking up the AEM uego all in one, the PLX M-300 or the Innovate LC-1 with stand alone gauge. Anyone have any experience with any of them? Some oppinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

From what I've read, LC-1 with the O-Meter is the way to go on a budget.

agree LC-1 is not a bad choice at all, especially since they've just released an updated logworks 2, which allows you to log with their new software "PGMFI"

Who cares about that software? If it doesn't lambda log, I'm not interested. The other sensors are nice to monitor, but lambda log is one of the key functions of tuning via tables effectively.

It might help if you actually tried it out before posting what you do not know about it...

It was designed to log the Crome/PGMFI datalogging protocol that comes out of the ECU into the Logworks software, so yes it will log lambda amongst other things.

The switching of two windows effectively makes lambda log worthless. The whole point of lambda log is logging directly on the fuel map so you can select regions that need work and edit them. Switching back and forth while tuning is just a total pain in the ***. Now if you want to tune a couple of cars, its something one can easily deal with but if you want to tune a number of cars, its just going to be a pain pressing alt+tab every 30 seconds to make changes. I take features for what they are. This logworks package is nothing special considering Freelog and ECUcontrol already exist and Crome, Neptune, and Hondata all do a good job of logging as well.

Crome, Neptune and Hondata are all 'PRO' products with built in logging...yes this is optimal, BUT the reason it isnt worthless is because the data sent to LOGWORKS is the exact data stream that Crome/Freelog receives but instead of having to deal with any Lambda voltage offsets, you now have the EXACT lambda value plugged into the maps.

LogWorks is free...and much less painful to setup than some of the other free programs out there not to mention it will log a STOCK ecu as well...

I have the PLX-M300 and love it. It is very easy to use and was easy to install.
