Default I want an Aeroforce scangauge

I think I will pick one up when I get my economic stimulus check. How hard is it to mount in the stock cigarette lighter location? Even though I'm not supercharged, I'd like to see my approx MPG (it does that, right?). That used to keep my foot off the floor in the Grand Marquis, even if it was a rough estimate.

I'm also hoping it will allow me to check out why the hell I have shudder in tc lockup - whether it'* the motor or the trans. Another nice thing about it will be that I won't have to drive to autozone everytime I have to loosen my gas cap or forget to reattach a vacuum line somewhere lol.

Another thing I figured, in a year if I don't want the thing, I can always sell it for a good price I'm sure.

So, is Aeroforce the bomb? Or should I consider another gauge? I think it'* likely that I won't be pushed away from the Aeroforce, but just want to check .

The latest version does do a lot of amazing things like mpg, you can also do a case learn which if you ever up grade your pcm will save a bit of dealer cash right there.
They are plug and play for wiring, just use your imagination for the placement.

Being a 97, I don't think I'll ever require a case learn. Already have the PCM I think I want for the life of the vehicle anyhow . I see they go for quite a bit... I wonder if they're seen around often used.

yes, there maybe a used one or two floating around in the future. and yes, the 97 doesn't need a case learn, it has it'* own transferable knock module. I would recommend waiting a bit, don't buy new. There are going to be some people wanting to dump theirs for the new firmware version or to get the double set. (they have to be ordered in pairs for that)

Just an FYI that, unless something has changed, all you do is send in your old one for reprogramming for use in a double-set. You don't need to order in pairs. The reprogramming costs $90 shipped I beleive. Definitely more economical to order in pairs but not necessary.

Edit - I forgot that heard something about an even newer version that will be coming out soon that will have a usb port on it. I'll let you know If I find any confirmnation on it.
