Unfortunately this string does not work on my 2005 GTO.

Kfxguy Although I don’t want to spend that much, I think I’m going with the round one.

Nothubertjfarnsworth i was actually thinking of my POS suv...

it doesn't have an oil pressure PID that i am aware of, but there are other PID's i would like to read that are very specific to it.

Glynn I have a ScanGuage II from about ten years ago so the firmware is super old.
It had lots of good gauges, but I could never get the Oil Pressue PID to function and the refresh/poll rate is horribly slow.

That, and there aren't any good spots to mount it in the GTO that don't look bad.
06-29-2019 02:09 PM
Nothubertjfarnsworth so, you can program PID's into it? awesome!

Bradlyj8 I like the simplicity of this. And the colors match perfectly at night. It doesn't do oil pressure so I am adding that later with a separate gauge.

Nothubertjfarnsworth Checked out that scanguage ii, although it is fairly simple and compact, which i like, it actually only supports a few PID's.

Sacrifice Fyi the ultragauge can display up to 8 different gauges per page with (8? Pages possible). It can auto scroll through the pages and displays open/closed loop indicator with less than 6 gauges on a page.

My dashhawk is like that. Sucks they don't make them anymore.

You kinda still have to flip through screens, but there's only so much you can fit onto that little screen. At least i have what i need the most on the main screen.

DangerNoodle Same, I have my phone mounted to the vent using a magnetic holder. I have the Torque App on my phone bluetooth connected to the OBD II bluetooth Dongle. Works if you only feel like spending $20.00 for the bluetooth dongle and the app was like $5.00.

That's what I use - showing oil pressure, water temp and air intake temps, which over the crucial ones for me.

I like it but it's probably not for everyone, After seeing the prices on empty pod solutions and actual gauges - not to mention wiring said gauges - I saw on other real choice.

some no name china one is what he has. Now that you say something, I think the radio i have is offered in a higher model with a gauge pack.

I put an aftermarket stereo in my Escalade last summer and it has all those readouts as well (don't think it has a performance meter). Was thinking about something like that for meine Ziege as well to keep it clean.

I use the ultragauge as well. In my truck and the gto. Im not sure it has the oil pressure readout though. But the one in the gto is the "base", the truck has the upgraded version for trans temp readouts.

I would highly recommend the ultragauge. I like to monitor fuel trims with it as well

flowmastagoat I like the hptuners one mainly for storing multiple tunes as well but is too bulky for me, don't know where I'd put it. Came across the banks idash, looks pretty good, displays 4 PID's and fits in a gauge pod.

gixxer711 Love my aeroforce gauges.
06-14-2019 06:37 PM
kurazy kracka Aeroforce does everything I need and does it well. I watch trans temp, oil temp, coolant temp, oil pressure. I have it mounted in my bezel where you barely notice it.

Having more than say 2 gauges just makes the car look super ricer.

My AFR gauge is in my Mavman cluster bezel right in my face, this is the cleanest setup IMO because I also don't like gauges all over the place!

Now thatís a cool setup. I may consider it later on. Pretty pricey. I like that I can store and load different tunes. Thatís pretty cool. Thx
