Default Cheaper Wideband Option (JAW)

I've been running this wideband controller with the suggested Bosch sensor for the past few months and it works great:

I chose the solder my own option with display and it wasn't too bad. It was more fun than anything else.

Some cool features are:
It can be calibrated
Data logging with extra inputs
Programmable outputs
-can be used to replace oem sensor, to hook up a n/b gauge, etc.

So wait a minute...this JAW thing allows you to calibrate and program the outputs on the sensor?

If so, that is a good deal.

You just potentially saved me about 200 dollars. I'm getting a tuner in a couple of months and was going to get the AEM Uego unit. For my needs though this will work great!

Yep it can calibrate the sensor, and:

1- output to an analog gauge, you will need to figure the correct profile for the gauge to get it working.

2- outputing a narrow band signal to the ecu, this will allow your to run the WB sensor in place of the narrowband

3- output a linear 0-5 volt signal to an aftermarket fuel control computer like Megasquirt.

Hmm, was reading the JAW docs and it only works with Micro$oft .NET framework 2.0

DHP PowrTuner only works with .NET 1.1

Once you prog the sensor, is it standalone? That is, could you program the sensor on one computer and log it with PT on another?

I'm not really sure if you can log it with PT..

Once you calibrate the sensor, you don't need the computer hooked up anymore..

If you sign up on the forums and ask Alan, I'm sure he could help you do what you want if it'* possible. I've seen him help others when/if he could.

The power tuner uses a 0-5 volt input so this would work no problem.
Only $80 shipped too, thanks for the link

I still think my Innovate was a pretty good deal considering what came with it. Gauge, sensor, bung, plug, interface module, software, programmable, etc.

And a warranty. Well worth the money. More than this? Sure, but worth it.

and about 90% of the parts on the board you can buy from a place like Mouser.com and replace them . and you could make most of it for like 50% less.

just need the man Chip that has the programming and stuff.
