Via the laptop you set the max parameters for whatever you want to monitor, but not got it quite fine-tuned well enough yet (and now in the middle of my engine teardown/upgrade, so that won't get done for a good 3-4 months)

I have one of those built into my tach. I have sensors for AFR, boost, and oil temp. If you crack the round gauge apart you can separate the screen for more mounting options. They look cool built into the rear view mirror.

One thing I love about my ScanGauge is having access to almost all my engine parameters via the ECU's ODBII port. Programmable gauges sure to have a lot of advantages when you want to measure a few different things and mix it up a bit.

Cool...looks like quite a large unit, where are you going to mount it?

Have to say, I do like the rear view mirror offering, looks very trick!

Yep, it's too big to hide so it's going up front and center

New VDO Oil Pressure sender

I've decided to replace my idiot light sender in the back of the motor at the turbo oil stream with a new VDO sender to feed the new ECU and new x-dash.

I still have the oem sender in place up front too, so I should be able to see both for comparison.

Jeremy, I forgot you had the RSRs on that race car of yours...they look sweet!

I haven't decided yet if I'll go fully polished or black background, but they will be 9x11x17s and should look pretty good with all that rubber either way...

Ahh Jack's car is awesome.

Here are my track wheels - 17" weld ups made by True Design.




(spaced out cause I had smaller rubber on there) (235/275 in this picture)
