it'd be MUCH simpler to simply have a standard gauge OR use the GOODbox alone.. making both work isnt gonna be fun if you've never worked with electronics before(on the component level)

True, if there's an overlap between the gauge/goodbox function. Right now, I have water temp, oil temp, and oil pressure gauges. Since the OBDII has 'native' water temp, I'll remove my water temp gauge and replace it with an EGT gauge. The goodbox will then give engine water temp, AFR, vacuum, with the normal gauges giving op, ot, and egt. To get my ash tray back, I'd have to get 3 new sensors, and get that information into the 2 free goodbox inputs - not so easy. It would also be nice to have the radiator outlet temperature (feeding the engine from the lower radiator hose), for a total of 4 sensors going into 2 channels - messy.

can't believe these didn't sell out already. I was on the fence during the fab process but once it came out at this price it was a no-brainer.

if yours comes out of the box saying 'dondo was here" you have bigger issues, since that means Dondo is your delivery guy

Too bad I left for China for 4 weeks right as this came out.

But that.s OK, good thing is I can fix my temp dial while I am in there. I need to wait to close on my house in St Helens anyways. Have more room and all my tools available.
