it's rather confusing as a number of companies offer controllers wtih the 4.9.

I notice PLX has a set up for $190 bucks while other people sell the sensor alone for that price...and others for about $120????

This bunch, I did not see a price...stress es the Bosch CJ125 chip.   Guess I will have to do more research to see if anyone has put up an non-slanted comparison

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

It's a $70ish dollar sensor Steve. It's better than the 4.2 but not ntk.

AEM uses the 4.9 with their new controller.  Can't remember what I paid for it but I do remember getting a replacement sensor to the door for $60ish.

after reading a few sites, this seems to be the one to get for leaded gas or high temp life with a turbo

https://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/product_info.php/xrf/gshp/products_id/2337?gclid=Cj0KCQjwh_bLBRDeARIsAH4ZYENANqidnb9KvLr2ZP1tT6UBckn-GfsO68PgHg2kELlp80lMhEjCTkgaAhQ_EALw_wcB

Add 50$ to the price to replace the Bosch sensor with the NTK production grade sensor.  I have been running the NTK for years since I went thru three Innovate LC-1's.  I fact, I have a replacement LC1 out in the shop some place that I never installed.  Innovate is what convinced me to run open loop after having it quit at 28 psi of boost.

Expensive, but nothing compared to an engine..

Yes Steve can't beat the ngk afx with the ntk sensor. Ballenger Motorsports worked out a deal to keep producing the afx after ngk decided to go with a different unit. Ecm produces the afx and it still can be sent to ecm for an upgrade.

I'd still like to see some powerlogger logs with the ngk afx and a denso nb o2 compared.

Looks like I don't have any that I can say for certain.  I seldom put much info on my saves and I have a jillion of files from other people.  I haven't driven my GN in about three years because I got pissed at it from smoking so much, AC stopped working, and the alky went out.. need to pump the old gas out and freshen the tank up some
