    Analog vs Digital Wideband Gauge

    Looking to pull the trigger on a Autometer Wideband O2 but have a question concerning the analog readout. Does it offer the accuracy necessary to tune with? I know the AEM wideband (the other gauge I'm considering) gives a 0.1 scale readout and the autometer one you can estimate beyond the 0.2 scale. Otherwise, they are similar in features...bosch sensor, data logger output. I mostly want the autometer one to match my other gauge. Thoughts?

    I'd go digital, they Normally have the Disco lights that will go red when lean, just helps you concentrate on other things and allow you to keep the wideband in your peripheral vision, green good, yellow-red bad.

    That's a feature I hadn't thought about. The gauge will be mounted in the farther center vent so it will be in the peripheral anyway. Thanks for the insight! AEM it is.

    The AEM gauge has been rock solid reliable for me and every car I've done an Electromotive install on. I don't think I have had a single O2 sensor failure. They always seem to be dead nuts accurate too.

    Pulled the trigger last night on the aem. Found a sweet deal on Amazon for $165 shipped. Way better than the 210 summit wanted.

    For that price it's likely the gauge without a sensor. That happened to me once /:

    Nope, I checked. Its definitely the whole kit. They are actually selling just the gauge for $120. I have no idea why its so much cheaper but I'm not gonna complain!

    2006 Subaru Forester oem upstream o2 is the same sensor, and can be had for dirt cheap.

    So just to give a quick update. The aem gauge i linked to earlier is the full kit. Came with the gauge, sensor, two harnesses (one for the gauge and one for data logging). Only hiccup is that the first one that arrived was used. Someone uninstalled it and shipped it back to Amazon, who sold it to me... Quick exchange and I'm in business.
