Installed BD X monitor

In my truck since my pyro never wanted to work from either the ISSPRO or Autometer gauge.

Anyway, modified my 3 gauge pillar to accept the X monitor. I think it looks pretty good.






Yes, I hit 1733*... 0-90 mph.

Looks good Marty. Im curious how much difference in trans temp is there from what the PCM reads to what your analog gauge says?

Didn't hook up the trans temp gauge for two reasons. 1. I already have an analog gauge. 2. I don't know where to hook it up lol.

The boost is also not hooked up, but that's simple if I really wanted to... I could go install it right now. It's a mechanical boost connection not an electrical so it will read proper boost if it's pre-fooler. However, I may set it up post fooler at first to really dial my boost fooler in so it allows the PCM to see the maximum boost without setting an SES light.

The trans temp ties into one of the wires coming off the OBDII port IIRC. I forgot that the boost was a T in the map line. Guess its been a while since I messed with that Xmonitor

My EGT gauge has still never worked from ISSPRO... I installed them last year, it would go up to about 400 and then never go passed that, EVER... Called them and they sent me a new wiring harness and gauge... Swapped it all out and STILL won't go over about 400... I really should try and do something about it again, but I haven't touched it for a while now... SUCKS... The guy at ISSPRO told me he has never heard of that happening, and then it happens twice to me?? Come on man..
