Quick read out

Postby catbones [OP] » September 28th 2013, 4:54am

Hey, I took a quick shot of a reading while drying and idling. I felt like my RPMs were little night, anyone see an issue anywhere?

What program is this? I recall there was a thread about this lately, but I did not recall seeing a display?

Thanks,

I recently posted about putting an ultra gauge in. Looks like the OP is running a smart phone app.

With stock 15-inch tires, 3.73 gears will likely push around 2500 rpm at 70 mph. Sounds about right to me.

No idea really, figuring out is on my lower part of list. I'm 98% sure they are, stock. Why?

Hahaa... Beat me to it. I was testing this for a few as I like to know what's up. I don't have an overhead console so I was working on building my own and integrating a low cost android phone with the app, hooked into my built and wired. Won't even know its a phone if it works out. I might take the approach of not using a phone if it becomes expensive but use a LCD display hooked to raspberry pi.

Out loud thinking.

That was $70. it's 2 1/8" x 3 7/16" x 1/2" supports more parameters then then ECM puts out, it offers me 48-49 readings.
