What is the best wideband to get these days?

just like the title said. Only finding old threads so wanted to know what everyone is using lately? What kinda of gauge is best for wideband tunings? How are the plx versus innovate or autometer? Opinions...

I've used the same plx wideband and sensor since 2006. It still reads within .1 afr of other new widebands and it uses OEM bosch sensors that are available at most auto parts stores. It's even been installed in the factory o2 sensor location and exposed to higher temps. I did move it down the pipe 18" after I had a new dp made.

So basically, I give PLX thumbs up.

Yeah been looking at the plx and they seem pretty nice. Heard the innovate ones are good too.

Post up your install pics, if you don't mind. I've been looking at plx as well.

I've got an Innovate one that's done a few years of sterling service. The sensor's only mounted a few inches from the turbo where everyone said it'd burn out in weeks.... which it hasn't. It still runs within a fraction of the accuracy of the dyno one last time my car was mapped, and that's despite being drenched in petrol (and red-hot apex seals) twice
