    AEM Uego vs Inovate LC-1

    Looking to get an AFR Gauge in the near future to begin tuning my car. Now my teacher who tunes cars on the side said to go with a LC-1 while a few tuners that I've spoken to have said the Uego is the better of the 2. Anyone have any hands-on experience with either of them? Ease of use, installation and longevity?

    I have the AEM UEGO, it was cheap and easy to install. Some people seem to have trouble getting the BFM cable to log with RomRaider, but it works fine for me.

    Thanks for the input, where did you weld the 02 bung?

    I stuck it in the existing rear O2 bung.. I was concerned about it's orientation (horizontal), but according to my tuner he has more success with them there rather than closer to the turbo. I guess the "correct" location burns up the sensors more quickly.

    What did you do to the Stock o2 sensor?

    Haven't had one for years.. I think it's probably in a box somewhere. I have a 2002 with catless exhaust..

    You will need to install a bung in the downpipe.. I think 3" or more from the exit of the turbine in a downward facing position is what's recommended.

    I have the AEM UEGO. Good quality in my opinion for the price. One thing to keep in mind is that your year car uses the stock o2 sensor to calculate proper fueling, so you can't just yank it out. Are you planning on getting a protune or staying on TP? Did you talk to that guy about this? Your OP sounds like you are planning on getting into "tuning" your car, so maybe my point is mute if you are going to be manually adjusting fueling through some type of tuner software.

    I used the LC-1. Mine worked fine but I went through sensors pretty often. Worked with Romraider just fine with a $15 USB-serial adaptor.

    I have the Innovate MTX-L, their "all in one" gauge. Had it for the past year and a half and no issues so far.

    just bought the AEM UEGO with the Busted Finger Motorsports cable. 02 sensor was welded in a bung before the cat pretty far down right after the DP curves about 10 degrees up from horizontal

    Im getting a protune at Akuma this summer after I install my FMIC and injectors. I was originally going with the tp stage 3 but after looking over some logs with my teacher he wasnt too impressed with it.
