best addition

This is my first real post here other than my introduction

Question was asked about the most liked add on to your truck, this is my absolute favorite device



My Scangauge this amazing little gauge has already paid for itself many times over in diagnostics and fuel savings.

I was going to mount a couple gauges in a pillar pod, for the cost of the pillar pod and gauges, I picked up the scangauge. It is 25 gauges in one I can put up 4 gauges at a time, it spits out error codes and lets me reset them, it tells how far i can go on the fuel left in my tank. It tattles on my kids when they beat the crap out of the truck. It saved me the cost of a speeding ticket already, top speed is held in memory

All around for me the handiest thing since the ginso knife

Looking at the website it seems that this little device could come in very handy - not too hefty a price tag either!

I've heard good things about them. My buddy had one in his S10, it was kind of neat.

there is also the aeroforce gauge does the same as the scan guage but is more eye friendly




Video Here.
http://www.aeroforcetech.com/action.html


The Interceptor scan gauge is capable of displaying over 100 parameters, two at a time (8 using cyclic scan), at an adjustable rate of up to approximately 20 times per second. Not all are supported by every vehicle, so there is no guarantee that the Interceptor will display all of these on your particular car or truck. If the vehicle is broadcasting the parameter, the Interceptor will recognize this and make it available for display. A sample list is below...

* RPM
* MPH
* Intake Air Temperature (post Intercooler)
* Ambient Air Temperature (pre Intercooler)
* Engine Coolant Temperature
* Exhaust Gas Temperature (PCM Calculated)
* Transmission Temp. (auto trans)
* Manifold Pressure (vacuum/boost) displayed in PSI
* Fuel Temperature
* Battery Voltage
* Battery Temp
* Injector Pulse Width in msec.
* Injector Duty Cycle (%)
* Air Flow Rate into engine
* Long Term Fuel Trim
* Short Term Fuel Trim
* O2 Sensor Voltage
* Barometric Pressure
* Ignition Advance
* Base Spark
* PCM Spark Adjust
* Fuel Status (open/closed loop)
* Wastegate Solenoid Duty Cycle (%)
* Knock Retard
* Knock Sensor Raw Voltage
* Throttle Position Percentage
* Throttle Position Sensor Raw Volts
* Calculated Net Horsepower
* Engine Load
* Transmission Slip
* Current Transmission Gear
* Torque Delivered to Transmission
* Torque Converter lockup status
* Brake pressure
* Brake Booster Travel
* Steering Angle
* Non-driven Wheel Speed
* Lateral G's
* Yaw
* Fuel economy (instantaneous and average)
* P-ratio - pressure ratio MAP/Barometer
* 2 user configurable analog inputs**

** 0-5v inputs can be configured to read the outputs from MAP sensors, Air/Fuel ratio kits, pressure or temperature sensors, etc. Raw voltage can be displayed or a conversion can be entered to read proper units.

Users will find that ability to log RPM vs other parameters at high speed such as ignition advance, boost, or knock retard invaluable with regards to tuning.



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.
