My choice would be autometer.

Well, since autometer doesn't make a wideband O2 controller.... I'd say if you want a true WBO2 you'll need one from Innovate motorsport or PLX devices.

i was going more for the one from innovate originally, im just a little unsure about an analog gauge for a wbo2... anyone have experience with these?

They also make digital gauges. Maybe PFYC just doesn't have them? You should check out Innovates store.

DB digital gauge. http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/db.php

XD16 gauge. http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/xd16.php

Check out PLX's gauge too. http://www.plxdevices.com/singlegauges.html Between the two you should be able to find one with the style you want.

I've heard of people having problems with the AEM gauges.

i have installed dozens and have only once had one that had a bad sensor within a few days. we had them swapped out in a day for no charge thanks to our distributor. The thing i like is that they are simple to install and cheap for replacement sensors since i like to run them for a primary o2 sensor close to my turbo, which is kinda bad for them. the AEM product i dislike is the truboost. that thing i have had a handful of failures and trouble with them controlling boost properly, but their o2 gauges seem to be quality.

i cant believe how cheap they are now a days. i bought my first wideband in like 02-03 and it was a LM-1 and i think i paid close to 550-600 bucks for it. it wasnt even practical to use but for tuning, it was bulky and ugly.
