    GReddy Informeter

    Anyone here running this in his/her WRX? I was thinking about getting one instead of getting all of the gauges. What do you guys think of it?

    Pics would be awesome. I am also considering this. I did a quick search on google and found if at many places. All were less than 360. Some were even almost $100 less. So make sure you look around for a good deal because $360 is the Greddy MSRP and very few things sell at MSRP.

    Nice! After you hook it up an everything, can you give a list of what it tells? Hopefully it will show EVERYTHING, PSI, EGT, AFR? stuff like that. Im assuming that the OBDII in the 02 will be the same as the OBDII in the 06?

    Sorry for my lack of apostrophes, there is something wrong with my keyboard and everytime I hit that key, It pops up my find thingy at the bottom. I think I need to restart.

    Sounds pretty awesome, I found this info on projectnissan.com:

    Read up to 25 pieces of information
    Communicate with the factory ECU toreadupto25 Channels. Like: Speedometer, RPM, Water Temp, Ignition Timing, Injector Rate, Intake Air Temp., Fuel Temp., Air Flow Voltage, Intake Manifold Press., O2 Sensor Voltage, A/F, Battery Voltage, Throttle Position, WGV, ATF Temp., EGR Temp., Gear Position, 4WD ratio, Exhaust Temp.

    If this thing does boost too, I'm sold.

    I'm curious about this unit also. I'm trying to picture a wire from the OBDII port and a power cord going to this unit. My dash is getting messy already with sirius and V1 stacked on it. Might have to go hardwire.

    I did notice on one website that it had a caution that it "may not monitor all parameters listed", so I wonder how vehicle specific it's software is.

    Please post pics and thoughts when you get it installed. Did you also get a mounting kit with it? The only one I found was in the UK at it was basically an ipod holder with a suction cup.

    This was the cheapest site I could find it, so you could at least us it somewhere else for a price match reference. 275 bucks.

    Right, I would imagine it depends on the car to some degree. And obviously something like the "4WD ratio" would only be available on suitably equipped vehicles. Still, if it does even half of what it claims it would be extremely useful.

    A common question is does it read boost? well it does, but what it is reading your map sensor to get that reading. so if you use a fcd of any sort, mechicnal or electric there will be a point where the reading this gives you is off.

    Cavallino, this is a list copied from RSD's post in the vendor announcment forum, this thing is great =D I have to photobucket my pics then ill post some up, Sorry for the bad quatlity they were pretty quick and i had my friend drive to take some while in motion.

    Anyway... it displays Speedometer, RPM, Water Temp, Ignition Timing, Injector Rate, Intake Air Temp, Fuel Temp, Air Flow Voltage, Intake Manifold Press, 02 Sensor Voltage, A/F, Battery Voltage, Throttle Position, WGV, ATF Temp, EGR Temp, Gear Position, 4WD Ratio, Exhaust Temp.

    But for some reason i couldn't get the gear postion to work (no biggie)

    I don't have the 02 sensor ones working either but im guessing thats due to my exhaust

    Only complaint really is there is no harness or stand (which would help alot since there is no great place to mount it)
