Default Australian DIY wideband O2 kit

Who has purchased this and assembled it? I was curious as to your impressions on the unit. I just ordered the complete kit(PCB, parts, connector, and case) with display and want to know what I'm getting into if anything.

I minored in electronics so I think I'm competent to put this thing together. Not a bad alternative if it really is accurate, for the price that is....

Bulky display but the assembly seems pretty straight forward. Don't forget ESD grounding during assembly and a good soldering iron. You might want to socket the IC's since excess heat could damage diode/transistor networks in them. As far as accuracy is concerned, I don't know. As long as the sensors wide range matches correctly to the unit and the design is good there should be no problems. Also it may be a good idea to ground the board to the car chassis if using power from vehicle. What was the total price.

Thanks raptor5, but I know how to solder, I know about ESD... Again I minored in electronics when in college.

Main thing is that I want to know if anyone has one and how it's working for them, and if there are any caveats to the unit.
