Default Wideband Oxygen sensors

Would a wideband O2 sensor benefit my 06 vert with HO turbo?

Maybe, probably. But you don't just install one and boom you get better performance. A wideband is a measuring tool used in tuning. It gives you an accurate readout of the actual air to fuel ratio. It's typically used with tuning software such as HPTuners to calibrate your air and fuel.

As Got said.

The part where it might 'help' a stock engine is if it were to run lean for some reason, preventing detonation and a fractured piston.

Problem I have is sensors only last so long- then you start getting doubts about what it's telling you.

In short, if everything is mostly stock, there's really no need. Periodic fuel pressure checks would be more efficient.

I have the LM-1, traded in the LC-1. I think they're both obsolete, as innovate went digital.
My guess would be it uses a non-standard sensor, so maintenance just got $$$
