5.7 gen datalogging wideband

I am working on my 5.7 motor swap and am looking at wideband options for when I do more bolt-ons. I don't intend to use a piggyback (ECU reflash instead) so I am investigating my options. I have read quite a bit and I understand the principles behind tubing but I'm not experienced. I need to be able to log; RPM, AFR, timing advance. I think it would also be beneficial to be able to see injector duty, MAF, IAT, TPS, load, VSS, APP and maybe cam timing.

At the top of my list are:

AEM X-Series OBDII with Android app. $225 single

Zeitronixs ZT-2 with nDash (also OBDII). $799 single

iDash by 14point7. Cheapest 2 bank option but data logging looks cumbersome and would require splicing. $299 ($399 dual)

Wondering what others think. At this point I don't intend to permanently install a gauge anywhere in the car so aesthetics aren't really a consideration. My only other concern is I am not sure which PIDs the 5.5 ECU supports, I guess I should throw a battery in the car (no motor ATM) and find out.

Edited with prices and more specific Zeitronix option. It looks like AEM is a winner at this point.

Someone correct me if I am wrong....

NissanDataScanII - About $60 If I remember correctly
Innovate LC-2 wideband - $155
USB to serial adapter for LC-2 to NDSII - $12 (One with FTDI chip)
Cheap OBDII to USB cable - $10 (If you are reflashing the ECU yourself then you already have this)

You can log everything to NDSII on a laptop and not have to bother with the wideband gauge if you wish. Might not be what you're looking for, but its another option.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of this and am going to test it out too!

I hooked up power to my ECU (still not ready to put my motor in) and checked the PIDs available via Torque. I'm rather pleased, the only items I don't see which I was hoping to are APP and IVT advance. Tomorrow I think I'll play around with some data logging in my truck to see what kind of resolution is possible. Looking like AEM will be my choice.
