Here's some pics of a digital air temp gauge I have made for my Coupe Turbo:




For those of you in the know air temp is crittical in turbo engines and this little gauge monitors it to within 1-2 deg C of tech 2.

The gauge can be fitted to any turbo engined car and for that matter any N/A engined car.

Hopefully they will go into prodcution soon for less than £20, so popst your name if you're intersted?

Some on else told me Maplin sell them, but no one has told me what exactly they sell other than battery powered gauges that you can stick onto your dash and they normally have a clock on them too.

I have looked in my local store and the website and can not find an equivalent. This on is 12 volt and like you say back lit.

It's sample rate is 1 sec.

The price is £20 is max, it may be slightly lower depending on the number built at any one time.

So where does the tech 2 get the reading from? Why can't we hook into that feed and make life easier :)
