    if you have a car built after 1996 it should have an obdII connector, and you can get a serial module to put into those

    do a search for obdII interface

      What about if you've got a car made in 1970's??

      Any way to integrate the details from the Mark 2 Escort running gear which will be in my Anglia??

                    While I cannot remember any manufacturers at the moment, there are companies that sell convertors so that old analog gauges can work with new digital ones. You might be able to interface that.

                            If you interested, and have the money and desire you could install an aftermarket ECU. I'm installing a Microtech LTX-8. It's one of the cheapest available, no frills like Motec, but it gets the job done. Atleast I hope it does, like I said I'm installing it. Certainly easy to install.

                            I am NOT installing this for gauges. This is a programable engine managment system. This is capable of giving more hp it's also capable of screwing up you motor if improperly tuned.

                            Anyway here's a Flash screen shot of the software. I've that some people are working on reverse engineering the software to make a digital dash.
