I'd be really interested to know how you could do something like that.
Seriously. Teach me. I learn quick.

Its just a reader (scanner) not a programmer.
There is a guy over a cgp that has a harness that will allow up to 3 of these running at the same time, thats a total of 6 parameters viewed at the same time
Trans temp
KR
Volts
Boost
Maf
IAT
Thats a lot of data to take in while your driving

Right on, we have a few of us so far.

toastedoats

Thats not a bad idea actually, I was looking today and it might work?
Have to give up a vent but with 30 others I'm sure I wont miss it
Will have to make up some kind of trim piece so it angles more to the driver and maybe a wee hood to block the light?
Wish I had a pillar pod though

Even though I can't afford one, I was thinking about it, and there'* that big empty spot on the 98'* (probably all 92-99'*) right below the stereo. A little work with the dremel and it'd be easy to read it and reach it. And it wouldn't be on the pillar daring all the ricers to act stupid around you
