Scan Gauge. Install Pictures and INFO

Post by Admin on 5/14/2008, 16:17

[QUOTE=CateraMV6;1023463]:thumbsup: I got it through a GrouBuy on one of the other forums and it cost me a total of 150$ well spent dollars. I love the unit, I now know my MPG real time speed and RPM and it has a way to add correction factors for tire size and other things. I like being able to see the IAT and WT, and a ton of other things such as ignition timing and Gallons per hour. It also figures out the exact amount of fuel in the gas tank.

well enough talk lets show you some of the pictures. :bouncy:

Plugs in the OBD port under the steering column...

Also it has a ton of info, such as Intake Air Temp, Engine Water Temp, Ignition timing, which can show you if you got crappy gas...

Then you got MPG, Averages, RPMs, etc...

The trip computer is quite nice.

I got a second unit called AUTEL MAXITRIP and it cost around 80$ from Amazon, and works just as good at half th price of this one.

finally got it. Best thing ever invented...its amazing all the data you can see on here, and im sure the possibilities to program it are also endless. :-) id recommend against the windshield cradle for it however...it wasnt even designed for it and i still had to use velcro to secure it, and it still is not entirely secure. The seller is Mfauls on ebay, fyi. anyway i am curious as to the horsepower reading however...im not sure if its brake or wheel. since the reading so far seems to be pretty low im going to assume its wheel. also i plan on loading the A/F ratio code in to see how lean i am actually running. i will let everyone know when the results are in. Definately worth every penny!

Mine has hit around 190ish so... I do think its wheel too... add about 20% and you will get Flywheel...

Most cateras are between 160-170 if stock...

I dont think they work on our cars a lot of stuff on that guage seems to not work except some basic stuff...

Seems to work on some other GMs though, our cateras have a strange KWP-2000 language on the ECU software so that thing is an odd goof ball!
