Looking to buy a wideband AFR gauge with sensor.
Only after basic functions - no data loging or link to ECU.
What do people recommend?
AEM looks to have been the go in the past, but is this still the case?
Innovate, AEM, Autometer, etc?

My opinion is that you don't go for the Innovate MTX. I've had endless trouble with the E8 error, up till the point where I had to buy two other gauges.

I now bought a 14Point7 wideband, and up till now seems to be holding well.

So the AEM gauge would be:
"AEM X-Series Wideband 02 UEGO Air Fuel Ratio Gauge Kit 30-0300"
As found on Ebay?

Lowestoft, Suffolk.

Stack for me, but these seem to be very expensive now.

14point7 for me.

Mainly because it can be very easily integrated into all my other electronics but, even as stand alone, very good value.

Alan is based in Canada and he's not exactly quick at sending stuff out but it's worth the wait.

As your avatar says Australia, have you not considered TechEdge (http://wbo2.com/) ?

I've used some of their stuff in the past, a bit pricey compared to the 14point7 stuff but local to you...

Schrödinger's cat - so which one am I ???

Looks like there are a few options:

AEM
Innovate
Autometer
Stack
14point7
TechEdge

I like the look of the Stack but it is pricey.
So far, the AEM looks the best value for money as a kit.

You could probably list 30+ suppliers, some almost no name, others popular brand names.

NGK or Zeitronix are another couple of popular options too.

A lot can depend on the style of gauge or display you want and what sort of connectivity with other devices.

Innovate whilst the quality of individual parts are good....they just kill sensors far too often.

202mph standing mile
speed didn't kill me, but taxation probably will

That's where I am as well.

Does anyone have a trusted supplier of the AEMs? I have a distrust of buying big brand automotive electronics from random online suppliers because of the risk of fakes. Whereas I can pickup the Stack unit from Merlin Motorsports who are just down the road.

Very happy with it and not too expensive.
