O2 controller recommendation

Post by TZepeSH » Wed Jul 26, 2017 6:40 am

I am preparing the parts for MS2Extra in y type4, and I would like some opinions on the Wideband controller to choose. I would use a controller for Bosch LSU 4.9, and I think that one which uses the original CJ125 chip from Bosch would have very good results.
So I came up to these controllers:
1. Innovate LC-2. I do not like this one because of feedback on poor reliability from many users.

2. Ecotrons ALM-S. Looks interesting because they are the only ones who say are using CJ125 chip.

3. PLX. Had good reviews until now

4. 14point7 Spartan2. Looks small and well done, also good reviews

So, which one to choose?

Looks like you have eliminated 2 from the start. I have used older 14point7.com units and never had any failures. Almost a coin toss with the remaining choices.

14point7 products are nice as far as i can tell. I've got the Megaspartan 4ch setup in my turbo car. Works good so far.

I did not eliminate any of them. The Innovate LC2 is the one I like least, but all other three have equal chances. ALM-S has a big point for using CJ125, but looks like a hobby project and I do not know how well it resists in car all the time: vibration, heat.

I'm pretty happy with my PLX and Multigauge.

I also scored on an EGT sensor and PLX controller to daisy chain to the gauge this past winter for $49.95.

I did have a LM-1 for a couple years until it died on me.....The PLX is 3 years old now and I have put on at least 16,000 miles with it.
