The AEM wide band works good , I can tune with out the wide band but to get all you are paying for and keep the engine safe a wide band is needed , and will help with every mod you add to get all out of them you paid for safely

The AEM kit from C-F-M is complete except for a guage pod and the wiring for your datalogging. So, you'd be right at $200.

I have an Innovative Engineering LC-1 and I believe it was also around the same price.

crap I just paid for mine $189 from glowshift. I heard good stuff about them. Still in process of installing it takes for ever complete lack of time. I don't know how accurate they are. but what I read that A/F wieband is pretty good.
