    Will this be able to read boost?

    I'm pretty sure OBD-II can read boost pressure, or I've heard wrong. Anyway, if it can... will this be able to show boost pressure in my 04 wrx?

    If you know one that does, pleas give me a name/link. Thanks.

    No problem. I bet others will chime in with others, but that's the first thing that came on up

    Just got the demo of it and couldn't get it to show any boost, that could be because it's not connected to a vehicle (it should be in presentation mode though)..

    Does anyone know where I might be doing something wrong?


    edit - EcuTek makes the DeltaDash specifically for wrx's. It does not show boost, I have a feeling that I won't be able to get boost via OBD-II.

    Boost is usually considered an "enhanced parameter". If this is a general obd2 scanner and not designed to read stuff specifically for your car it probably wont.

    The Autotap link you reference is a list of Diagnostic Trouble Codes. It is not a list of real time available data (like boost pressure / map pressure).

    The car's ECU may monitor the map sensor to see if an abnormal condition is being sensed. If so, it may trip a DTC with the issue. That is not to say that you can monitor the boost pressure with your device.

    Map sensor is a fairly standard device to monitor as it is so important to vehicle driveability.
