...whats the best one out there...and whats the most common. some pics would be cool too.

since i have some future plans for the car. and ive already begun modding it. i thinnk an afr gauge is a good idea.. just for peace of mind with all the horror stories of bama tunes out there( im running the 91performance tune) but mine is running just fine so far.

ive been looking at the innovate lc-1

although i do not want to mount just one gauge. what are some other gauges beside boost obviously since im mostly stock still. id like to get a douple pillar pod or a triple dash from americanmuscle

i have an autometer w/ a new sensor. it's very inaccurate compared to what it was on the dyno. eventually i plan on swapping to a better one

i don't think it's common to have it be so incorrect. most of the a/f gauges you can get for in your car are a little slow compared to the high dollar one that most dyno's use, but they aren't actually completely wrong like mine is.

no..surely they should be somewhat close to dyno readings. give or take .5 to .7 i'd say

PLX DM-200 | OBD2 OBDII Scan Gauge

I have this, you plug it into your OBDII port on your car and you can read check engine codes, and get all of the data that your OBDII sees for the most part but a word of cation, it is very very difficult to put in a pillar pod, It took me a month to do mine.

I have the Innovate Wideband (3796) with the LC-1. It's pretty accurate and highly rated. There is an article where someone ran a test with several Widebands and it was ranked #1.

Autometer "Elite" series is what I went with. Probably not the most accurate, I was going to go with the LC-1 mentioned above as it is my understanding that Innovate is the best one out there. But I went with the Elite series for my 3 other guages and wanted some continuity in my interior. I like the lighting/display options and the other features of this line. I was going to go with the Nexus lineup but these seemed to have the key functions that I wanted without the central control module. Maybe not the best criteria for choosing a wideband but that was why I went this way. Mounted it right in the middle of the dash.

I have the autometer cobalt and it SUCKS! It was good for awhile and very accurate, but six months later, it doesn't read right, and part of the digital display burned out. I bought an AEM to replace it with but haven't put it in yet.

I've had the Autometer Nexus for a couple of years and it's been very accurate when I've taken my car to my tuner for dyno. I use all Nexus gauges for continuity but if I had to replace my AFR I'd take a hard look at the Innovate.

Ah..i looked it up. I was looking into the aeroforce dual interceptor gauges and it said measure air flow rate into engine as one of the parameters. I skimed over it to fast the other day and thought it said air fuel ratio into engine lol

I have an Innovate G3 with an LC1 on my motorcycle; it constantly loses calibration. Not impressed overall. The thing that sucks the most is every time you want to re-calibrate, you have to remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust.
