JAW Wideband o2 controller?

Does anyone have any experience with the JAW Wideband O2 controller?

JAW (Just Another Wideband) website is at:

http://www.14point7.com/JAW/JAW.htm

$70 for a DIY kit with display, $90 for an assembled kit with display. Uses the Bosch LSU Wideband Sensor.

Nope, but I would give it a try for that price.

Yeah, I think I'm going to!

I'm kinda itching to play with the megasquirt engine management stuff and I think this JAW kit would be a nice easy practice project for me before I start in the MS components.

BTW, there is a thread over on the megasquirt forums that I found and so far it looks like everyone is happy with the JAW controller.

Thanks for the feedback!

Steve

I'm pretty interested too

Does anyone have a link to where they were talking about this controller in the MegaSquirt forums? I'm thinking of using this controller with my MS and would love to see what they had to say.

thanks
Lou

You know I think those that would be happy with kit like products might like those, but honestly i think it's just a novelty and cheap kit that might work OK but not to the same standard as other better know makes like Innovate Motor sports, MSD or Accel. kind of like that EFI kit, that sounds good, but no one that is anything runs it.( I temporary forgot there name, but you can buy a kit or one complete, just there support and programmability isn't on the same par with others.)

more dollars than sence

"You know I think those that would be happy with kit like products might like those, but honestly i think it's just a novelty and cheap kit that might work OK but not to the same standard as other better know makes like Innovate Motor sports, MSD or Accel. kind of like that EFI kit, that sounds good, but no one that is anything runs it.( I temporary forgot there name, but you can buy a kit or one complete, just there support and programmability isn't on the same par with others.)"

I'm sure for some that it could be just a novelty, but for others it is a cheaper alternative for mechanics who are more crafty, aren't afraid of a challenge, and just want to save a few bucks, or...several hundred in some cases. It sounds like you are refering to megasquirt that "no one really runs" but it doesn't take much research to find that a lot of people are using it, and racing it, in all types of cars, motorcycles and who knows what else. I bought mine complete because i'm not particularly interested in electronics, but I am very interested in Electronic Fuel Injection, megasquirt provides an affordable means for me to do so. As far as support goes, I haven't had any problems finding answers to my questions. However I will probably end up using a name brand WB O2 controller since I was able to find an affordable one.....thank you Ebay!!!!

Thanks, for that price I can use one myself. That seems like a steal.
