If they sell out, I can always have more made. But there will be a 3 week turn around time. Alternatively I might just release the schematics and firmware, and let people go nuts

Geesh, can you program one to work with a Prosport oil pressure gauge and oil temp gauge? Instructions look very difficult but it's awesome you have the two analog inputs.

Please let me know if you sell out, I want one but I have some stuff to buy first

I can't remember if this was addressed in the other thread or not, but will this work for the Mazda 3 as-is?

That would be awesome!
Or allow people to buy a kit with all the components and PCB to solder themselves.
This would take away the SMT manufacturing processes.

perhaps you have answered this, does it do mpg display?
If not can i use a flow sensor to feed the 0-5v analog input

It does not. I've tried calculating it from the MAF, air/fuel and speed, but it is wildly inaccurate that way. I don't think we want to look at the mpg anyway haha.

Man I wish I could get my oil temp and oil pressure gauge to work with this. I read the directions and it might as well be in Greek as far as the aux inputs are concerned

It really isn't too bad. You just have to know how the voltage from the sensor maps to the temp/pressure. So if you have 2.3Volts from the oil pressure sensor, what is the pressure that that represents? You would use the gauge you have now to determine this.

Hmmmm, If I give the manufacture of the sending units/gauges can you figure it out and sell as a package? To have all the data currently and oil pressure and oil temp would be perfect.
