Re: little nitpicks

Wow....now that's freaking cool!

I'm curious how consistent those numbers would be with respect to, say, a good set of gauges with properly located sensors (boost, EGT, coolant).

*very* trick. yet another reason *not* to get a double din stereo. :) i just worry how hard it would be to read; at least in some of the installations shown. and how long the novelty would last; kinda like having a g-force. (i could see my wife saying, "and what do you do with all this information?". duh, uh...uh.... :oops: )

however, this being my first turbo car, i'd like to get familiar with the ranges and behavior of those engine parameters. this maybe something to think about.

the thread includes mention of the techtom unit (i've heard of this one) which appears to do similar thing and seems to have a datalogging module/mode (though not yet available outside japan). now that would be cool.

This appears to be just an ODBII scan tool with an LCD readout.

While I'm waiting for my STi to be delivered, I just ordered one of these http://www.obd-2.com which I will hook up to an onboard computer with a 7inch VGA monitor http://www.hometechwonders.com/700ts.html located in the dash stereo space. It should fit exactly in the 2-DIN space.

This ODBII tool can display virtual gauges http://www.obd-2.com/dashg.htm or strip charts http://www.obd-2.com/datxg.htm of any sensor data.

Oh, BTW, my computer will also act as my FM radio, MP3 player, GPS navigation and rear-view camera display (to see over that wing).

And how much is all that going to cost? :eek:

Since I already have most of the computer parts, I'll need to spend about the same amount as for a good stereo. Maybe $1K.

I'll post a list of components and pics when I get it all installed.

JJ,
that unit does not look to support the NA sti04, I would wait a bit before ordering.
