that thing looks amazing and really really cheap..... You just plug in to OBD port and nothing else needed?

Aeroforce monitors anything your OBD can spit out, plus you can add fuel pressure and a wideband if needed.

Nothing else needed! plug and play. Reads anything the PCM reports. on the 5th gen it does not report oil press or temp or AFR but pretty much everything else. I run Autometer Cobalt gauges for boost/vacuum, AFR, oil temp and pressure. Im kind of anal about having numerous gauges and sources of info though. Wonder why?

Very Cool.. Thanks for this info.

For the price I think it's a no-brainer. Will order mine tonight. I've been wanting to see my IAT's to see if the Meth really does bring it down so this will be an awesome tool

Can't you use EFI/HP/SCT?

If you have a droid or iPhone you can log with an app. It works awesome and is wireless.

one of the things i used to do at every first start up of the day was push the test button on the ALKY control to prime the lines with meth. I could see the IATs drop drastically one second after pushing the test button....the motor would also bog and the AFR gauge would go full rich. I knew the meth pump was working!!!!!!!!

Man,you guys are in the dark ages!!

There is an app for the iPhone, that will fully log your car, when coupled with the obd2 plug. PQ has info in his thread. I can't remember off the top of my head. I use SCT which can also be used with the iPad it iPhone. The app for droid phones is called torque I believe.

It would be great to be able to log but I guess its easy enough to do what I have been doing which is just mount up my gopro on the drivers door looking at my gauges and then replay and watch the gauges. Quality isn't all that great however so I'm not sure I would really see everything on the screen. For the money I think its worth it to go ahead and buy this ultragauge as I really don't want to have to setup my phone to be ready and visible all the time.

Thanks again for the link. I just purchased mine so I am looking forward to checking it out.

Where do you have your mounted? any chance you have a pic? I am thinking on the left side of the speedo right above the A/C vent.

Wise one, no. Wise ass, yes!!. I've been with this stupid car for three years. Unfortunately, or fortunately for everyone else, I've tried a lot and leaned the hard way what works and what doesn't for our cars.
