Monitor Preformance

After watching shows such as the fast and the furious, during the main race you see the green eclipse has a indash monitor which shows danger to manifold and engine readouts

now i have a indash monitor and i wondered how hard it would be to get software or something to show stats on the screen such as fuel, speed, rpm's etc.

i already have an apexi rsm which does all this , but using a colour monitor im thinkin i could go one step better, has anyone done this yet or know anything about it

thanks

Why not go one better and rig your car up like the kit car in Knight Rider??? Make it have a voice and it can tell you whats happening...

As for the other thing, i'm sure its possible, but if you have an RSM anyway, why bother with the expense

Yep got to watch for danger to your intake manifold it causes your passenger side floor to fall out :P .

34 GTR has a indash monitor for injectors, boost, g-forces ect.

cheers

The R34GTR MFD is pure cool. Don't know why other performance cars don't have such things.

I mean a Porsche has a MFD but its used for watching TV and SatNav. Go figure. :P

MOTEC will give you that mate. Hook it up to your screen or Laptop

The MoTeC can monitor anything you can imagine.

Im sure if you put a temp sensor on the welds, it will monitor those as well :lol:

and because im such i nice person here you go:

CAMP (Computerized Automobile Multi Player) (more)

The HKS CAMP offers drivers the ability to view engine vitals such as RPM, speed, and gas mileage by integrating into a vehicle’s Audio/Video display screen (not included). With the addition of the CAMP Junction box and optional sensors other engine functions can be monitored (boost, pressure and temperature).

Analog Display - The analog display can indicate speed, RPM, gas mileage, fuel consumption and injector opening percentage. The CAMP includes peak data memorization and allows the scale to adjust according to current driving conditions.

Digital Display - The bar graphs along with digital numbers indicate multiple data to simultaneously observe entire vehicle conditions.

Alarm Feature - This allows the user to set a designated limit for each data. CAMP will inform the user by sound and graph if any data passes the limit.

I second the consult software. $100 for a cable, hook it up to your carpc or laptop, and use the free software. This will show you everything the consult cable puts out.

Newkleer is making a new consult software, so I recken it'll be the goods!

    • I live in Thangool I cannot buy E85 fuel there or Biloela not many servo's sell it Rockhampton the  Ampol in Gracemere won't even sell 98 , it's hard to own a high performance car in CQ and NQ . 
    • Sounds like a good excuse for a trip to Australia! But yeah, trying it out is probably the best way to go about it. Please report back what you find.
    • Well as I will have both S1 and S2 front parts i will see what works best out of the two. Im not fussed if i need to drill extra holes, and im a big fan of Nutserts/rivet nuts and a nice painted dome head bolt as a way to hold stuff in place where plastic clips have broken and are hard to source new ones
    • Yeah truthfully it seems like the headlight supports for the ALTIA and S2 should be the same, but they aren't. I can only guess that the grill area of the Altia bar is different to the grill area of the S2 bar. Either that or it's due to the S1 bar having an angle up to the center bar that the Altia doesn't, or something. That said, I recently bought an Altia bar myself, and I fit it over the S1 brackets and thought "Yes, this will all work fine" so even as I doubt my own words as I post, I also daresay you'll be okay.
    • Me too. Apparently the new version of Invision will allow some customisation so look forward to a 'Love' reaction and a new 'Like' icon.
