Thread: Which Wideband is right for YOU?

    I'd just like to double check that the Dynojet Wideband Commander works with HP tuners...?

    I'm researching and preparing to purchase WB O2 for the first time so I can play with SD tuning. Most of my questions have been answered by the plethora of information already posted (thanks to everyone who shared)... But there are still two simple questions I can't find an answer to. Plus, while I'm at it, I thought I might make sure I'm looking at the right part(s).

    I do not want to mount any gaudy gauges in the car. I'm not a racer, just an enthusiast. Am I correct in understanding that buying this one part will take care of me? Regardless of that answer, do you recommend anything different? Is this one notoriously problematic/inaccurate/etc?

    Innovate Motorsports 3744 - Innovate LC-1 Standalone Wideband Controller (from Summit Racing)

    I've searched high and low for these next two answers. They are so simple, they have to have been asked before, but I'm not finding them... So I'll just ask. I'll even make them multiple choice (although I welcome all feedback).

    What do I do with the original NB O2 sensors?
    a) Replace with WB, but only when tuning?
    b) Permanently replace with WB O2.
    c) Leave them alone, make new bung(s) for the WB.

    One or two WB O2 sensors?
    a) Doesn't even work with two.
    b) Two works, but why bother? One works just as well.
    c) Two aren't necessary, but are better than having just one.
    d) Two are strongly recommended, but one will work in a pinch.
    e) Two are an absolute requirement. Get two or get none.

    Thanks for the help and tips, as always!

    *correct me if im wrong*
    get a bung welded to your x-pipe. Dont really think driver/passenger side is going to make THAT much of a difference in your wideband reading. and 1 should work fine...

    Nice... I didn't even THINK about the X-pipe. Sounds very feasible.

    Can anyone else confirm whether this will work?

    Well that rules out the X-pipe... So, either side works just as well? I just need to pick one?

    Also, is the WB I posted sufficient? Quality? Total crap? I am looking for something economical, permanently mounted, and free from any gauges or control boxes in the car... I will only be using it with HP Tuners.

    Pretty sure that will work fine, i have no experience w/ that one though. And for a ref. mine bung is located on the driver side x pipe before the merge.

    I will be ditching my PLX and going to a NGK AFX wideband.

    I was just looking into it a bit further... This one is teh controller ONLY, and has no actual WB O2 sensor included:
    Innovate Motorsports 3744 - Innovate LC-1 Standalone Wideband Controller

    Glad I caught that...

    The correct part, that INCLUDES the WB O2 is this one:

    Innovate Motorsports 3769 - Innovate LC-1 Lambda Cables with O2 Sensor

    I'm ordering that one... If Summit will ever let me log in! Ugh...

    Put it on the side that is likely to be leaner. So since #7 is notorious for that, use the driver's side.

    LC-1's are widely used but IMO not reliable (meaning they break often). And the one you have a link to is just the controller without a sensor. You need a sensor too. The best thing going right now IMO is the NGK AFX with NTK sensor.

    Thats what i like to hear!

    Hey im pretty sure ive read that the NTK sensor was only really necessary for tuning with leaded fuels?

    Got it. Easy 'nuff.

    This is just flippin sweet... I just finished the order (for LC-1 WITH the sensor) when your post came through advising against the LC-1. What's worse, I quickly checked the warranty, and it doesn't cover the O2 sensor... So if that is what is prone to breaking, then it will cost out-of-pocket to replace when it breaks.

    I called Summit back and canceled the order, and ordered the AFX. So, problem averted.

    The AFX is on the way and will be here before my MVPI Pro upgrade, most likely... But that will give me time to get the bung welded on. So I'll be taking a couple of weeks off from tuning, I suppose.

    Thanks to 5_Liter_Eater and sidewayz28 for the feedback.

    I am about to embark on the same journey...

    where did you get your AFX?

    Oh and... I found the WB shootout article... looks like Innovative is the way to go:
