I learned something from Fast and Furious!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELdJItoM8bA

I'm not kidding haha, near the end whenever they go to race, I saw this awesome gauge computer screen in Brian's car so I figured I'd google the brand, assuming that it was some fake made-up company for the movie. Its not!

http://magden-auto.com/

They sell a computer, which although its very expensive, formats your factory sensors into digital gauges to output on a screen. And they sell touchscreens to adjust on the fly! And it can have sensors added so that you can measure boost and AFR, etc. It's actually not super expensive considering what you get either. I want it!

i've always wanted something like that ever since seeing it in F&F nice find man!

edit: i'm wondering since this has the ability to read everything the OBDII port does.......would it be possible to use this instead of the gauge cluster of the focus? meaning since the obdII port can give you mph rpm and miles till empty (plus all sorts of other stuff) could you take out the stock gauge cluster and fiberglass a screen in place instead?
because that would be super fly

Yea i realllllly want this, and especially because it'd be better than trying to put in a ton of gauges. But i don't have the budget :(

yup it won't work on the focus as the ECU architecture will not support on the fly tuning

It's not a tuning program tho, its a monitoring/gauge program.

However...I also learned that HKS makes one called the Camp2, and its designed to do the same thing (in a less refined way) and also to link up with their standalone ecu.
