Default reccomend a wideband o2

I've decided to purchase the streettunner software from cobb. What wideband o2 sensor would you reccomend getting?? Also, where is this sensor typically installed?

Thanks!!

I am using the Innovate LC-1 wideband o2. Works fine with streettuner and lets me log AFR's and all that.

However if I could do it over again I'd go with the zietronix zt-2. It does what the LC-1 does, but it also lets you datalog boost and egt, and integrates all of it into your streettuner logs.

The wideband o2 sensor should be placed in the downpipe.

ZT-2 is nice. Also, the PLX M-300 USB was specifically made for use with Street Tuner.

A shop can weld a bung in the for you. Make sure it is on the top (preferably) or at least on the top half of the pipe. This will prevent problems with the O2 sensor.

The PLX Devices R300 & R500 work super well. I especially like the additional features of the R500, knock sensor tapping, EGT input, etc.

The ZT-2 is nice as well.

wb02 noob here...

i'm a little confused on what exactly you need. do you really need a controller? Can i just get an 02 sensor that goes to a gauge? If so, could someone refer a sensor/gauge package.

A wideband O^2 sensor needs a "heat pump" to control the sensor temperature. This is where the microcontroller is needed as the module needs to read the sensor temperature and adjust the heater suplpy signal (PWM signal) to the sensor.

The R500 is well... over $500. Is it worth the extra features? (Sorry for the dumb question) I'm about to swap in a built 2.5 into my '02 and will get a pro-tune locally. If I'm not going to be doing any tuning myself, do I really need the stand-alone data-logging feature? When I go to my tuner, won't he have this capability on his computer?

I'm already dropping about $6K on this build, if the R500 is that much better, what's the extra $250? But if it's a feature I'll never use, the I'll get the 300.

Again, sorry for the dumb question. I understand nuts and bolts and some suspension, but when it comes to electronics, I'm a bit ignorant.

Tony
