Hello,
Very kewl stuff here. As far as pricing, I think his price is fair. I bought an EFI systems Wideband Display, sensor, and controller kit from Clewett for $449. Probably paid a little much for it, but there it is. It is a well done unit also.

So for $200 more, I could have C2Turbo take apart my Tach and integrate it perfectly like it was factory. I would also get a Backbone system that I can customize with 32 inputs. Additionally it is in a Perfect position for viewing, right below the Tach.

Seems like a hell of a deal for an additional $200 over what I paid for my Wideband EGO. I'm not saying, it's cheap, but I think the price is fair.

PorschePHD, say one more bad thing about my 934 boost Gauge and it's your AZZ!!

Les

"One nut away from a eunuch" is not humorous to you? I guess it's the writers strike.

Your needs are not the same as the typical 930 owner who wrenches his own car, and quite frankly you have no idea what I have or have not tested or what I know about the tools of the trade.

As previously stated, the 930 OLCD is a nice gadget and I am sure it will sell well. It was not my intension to derail this thread.

Brian,
I thought your post was pretty funny! I still think C2Turbo is being fair in his pricing. I'm sure you know what he's doing here, don't you think the tach mod is worth a few bucks? He also has the aggravation of "supporting" the product.

Les

Just because YOU could make it for cheaper doesn't mean YOU could make it for cheaper for the masses and sell it. David is offering one hell of a product for a very good price. Give me a break, a quality AFR gauge (not your cheap wanna be versions) will cost almost as much as the conversion and you get a hell of a lot more than just a gauge.

You have any idea what we use to pay of for the old 934 Andial boost guage. LOL, that was worthless to boot.
Yeah I chased a LED Andial boost gauge on ebay all the way to $800. I think it ended at $1100

wow I just wanted to share being the first guy to volunteer my gauge as the mule and my thread has gone gonzo! We have talk of castration, martial arts, and sniper rifles...

DANG!

RarlyL8 : I did not find "One nut away from a eunuch" humorous and I am the typical 930 wrench-it-yourself... I just so happen to be all about the best quality stuff. I think Dave's in tach gauge is better than anything other sort of wideband display. I already had a brand new NGK AFX wideband setup I bought while back and instalntly decided to scrap it in favor of this option. Being able to add so many valuable data inputs and outputs from the motor is exactly what I was looking for when I researched over 12 different wideband setups, ultimately deciding that they all were all the same thing so i went with the cheapest quality setup. Now that I have the OLCD I'm freaking stoked. FActory Porsche appearence with ultimate customability... who the hell doesn't love more and better? Heck, I remember complimenting your exhaust systems and giving you feedback and input on how to make it better rather than stating "sure looks alot like the muffler and dump pipe setup I recently made and posted on Pelican..." or calling you a castrated man... wtf?

E-Man,
That's what happens when you're not here to ride herd on your thread. Ya end up with strays, rusltlers, and a pack of snarlin' wolves!!

How much did you spend on your 1st AFR setup?

You can sell that one and offset the cost of the OLED Gauge.

I really don't understand why anyone is insulted by my pun on words. Have you not heard the term "that one cost me a left nut"? It doesn't mean you are castrated, it simply means you paid dearly for something you really wanted.

This gage system is really cool and also rather pricey as gages go. It looks to be worth every penny for what it is and what it can do.

Let me give you a very clear comparison.
An exact replica of one of my Zork tubes fabbed up at your local pipe bender will cost < 1/2 what I charge. The difference? Mine is made of 321 and weighs <3 pounds while the muffler shop unit will be much heavier and made of lesser materials. The same goes for this gizmo. In the end it does the same thing as a dozen other gages, only with a lot more class and a nice compact package.

Can we stop the chest thumping now or do I need to break out the pictures of my guns?

It is an additional cost but PLX is coming out with a new Data logger that works with the C2turbo guage.

All this whining makes me not want to even surf these forums. You want cheap parts then go buy a mustang or some other pile. Keep it to yourself.

c2turbo, nice work!

I think c2turbo’s offering is great and not that bad of a price.

I have bought Brian’s products in the past and have found him to be a down to earth
great guy (Those welds are awesome!)

That said, I would like my 930 to stick with analog dials (with real needles) for everything!
I don’t track and in general, just love the non-high tech way the 930 is in the wild.

I come from a 9XX water world and truly appreciate the raw nature of the Turbo

E-Man, thank you saying that. I am shocked at the turn on this thread and disappointed by some of you on this, especially seeing that I have personally helped many of you on here.

SandMan \Jeff thanks for the humor - needed for sure

I am in full support of C2efforts and will be the next in line. Kudos to you and its a shame that this thread has turned into a level of puerility.

Sheeeesh, you guys read so much into one line, of apparently bad, humor.

No one said this was a bad product, it is not.
No one said this was an overpriced product, it is not.

What was implied (by me) was this is an expensive product - as gages go.
No more, no less, no malice intended.
I'll go back in the shop now, package up some mufflers and mind my own business before a get beat up, shot, or whatever Sandy had in mind (which actually scares me the most). Ha!
