Wide band lambda sensor choice

With a rebuild and ported engine in the pipeline and witht the tuning of the engine ahead I'm looking to buy a wide band lambda sensor.

Considering, i'm in europe I have the tendancy to source parts locally as much as possible. Plus I have some family working at Bosch who get some discounton parts.

I came up with the following link:

http://www.bosch-motorsport.de/en/sensoren/sensor7.shtm

There are a number of wide band lambda sensors available but I have no real idea what to look for here.
Can anyone tell me what would be the best?

And if it's possible to connect a reader to it to display the outcome? (other than a regular Volt meter)

Thx

You need a lot more than just the sensor. It needs a sophisticated controller to work. Some have a display, some don't. Some have logging capability and/or support additional inputs.

thanks, WBo2 is thesame as Tech Edge, which I have contacted by now.

I read soemthing about the NTK sensor being more durable then the Bosch sensors.
The Innovative Motorsports kit seems to be applicable with that sensor as well..
