Hit one more big problem with the set up in the car. I just got back from Rio & now have to get a Dewitt fan set up for the car. The stock fans set out to far, & hits the intercooler pipe & not going to put a big dent into it to get it to fit.

Man it is one thing after something else on this. But it is what it is & the stuff you put up with when doing this stuff. Robert

Dewitts radiator is over 1 inch plus thicker than the stock piece. Nothing to due with the A/A kit at all.. Just one of those thing when you go chg out one piece on these cars you more than not will have one r more things to chg out ...

Stock fan cover just came out to far into the cool blower pipe.

But I do have all the blower set up on the car. Most of the meth set up on the car. Now also having my pillar post covered for the 3 gauge's putting into the set up to be able to read every thing. Robert

As you can tell no big rush on my end at least I know it is correct. Plus been sick & on vacation, also takes time getting other parts in for meth tank pillar & all of that stuff.

I will post some pic's soon of the job & parts. Love the meth tank set up for the car not using the washer tank. It is a tank about the size of the LMR catch can tank. It sets in the same spot as that did in the car plus had it power coated black also like the other parts in the set up.

Can you explain what you've got going on here and how you have waze and gauges displayed on the infotainment screen?

www.dashlogic.com look at the web site. I was going to do it but one had my other set up. Plus from no bigger than that screen is & if something did go wrong I would never see what was going to happen until it was to late. I am getting old here, no I am old but in my 3rd child hood my wife tells me that.

But really with each of the diff pods r gauge's I have a fix in my mind were the damage point is and can start to let off r back out of it. We will see I will have all 3 gauge's in behind the screen by Monday night.

You can also make dash logic set alarms if there's any issues so you don't have to look at anything, which is pretty awesome IMO. It can ding at you and/or put warning messages on the HUD/DIC, whatever you want it to do. It's a pretty neat little device.

Should be in stock. I think Summit sells them. One of the gauge manufacturers bought them out

It just plugs in to the OBD port. Setup wise you connect it to a computer and change what it is displaying, alarms, etc. It has a bunch of default stuff you can use by default.

If you want to show things like actual afr from a wideband then you'll need to connect the output from a wideband to dash logic and set it up on dash logic. I've posted some pics around here somewhere on how to do it

I should start selling the things with as much as I push the things . I really like them

This is not dashlogic. I have dashlogic and it is sweet. I would like to know more details on how the info is displayed on the infotainment screen also.
