If you are going to get a tune. You will need to data log. In the data log you can see the AF ratio through the AEM it has a hook up for the SCT. I dont know if the LC1 does. I would assume it will but IDK...

Well i think the LC1 has a port that can be hooked to a laptop without the SCT programmer. It can log by itself

The AEM has the face plates you can change from black to white, not sure if the used one will have that or not.

Searching around the innovate is a little higher priced so i wondered if its better?

I went with the innovate. It had all the stuff with it along with a USB cable, software to log the data, a mount, manual and the guy tested it so i could see it work.

Whats cool is the 02 sensor has a plug on it and it doubles as a wideband and narrow band sensor. When i plug the wideband sensor in i can plug the cable that goes to the stock sensor in and it shouldnt throw a CEL which i thought was kinda cool.

^^ that is cool, but most people dropping the $$ on a wideband are using it for a tune that can disable the CEL . but either way hope you enjoy the wideband, my car was running a little lean at wot before i installed mine and adjusted the WOT fuel in my X3.
