nope.. the lc1 using a different sensor and the aem is an all in one unit, for the lc1 you can program the output for a different cheap gauge like an narrowband style gauge if you know how and only about 30 bucks or so and for the aem the sensor is around 80 last time i looked, might be able to find one cheaper if you know how to look, like autozone has sensors for the lc1 that come off of the turbo VW's lol so im sure you can find something like that if you look hard enough, cant help much since i use an lc1 though

I bought a digital narrow band gauge and programmed my output to work with the gauge.
Here's a link for the cheapest sensor I found:

Oooops, I thought I read he needed the LC1 sensor.

Look up a sensor for a 2005 or so Cadillac CTS.
They had that style sensor.

you can get something like this if you know how to do some wiring like THIS also that runs on 5 volts only so you would need to find a 5 volt source. I believe that's the one that you can manually change the decimal, also this would require changing the setting on the lc1 but is the cheapest option (only if you know what your doing) other wise either a DB gauge or a sensor for the aem is the way to go.
