    How to monitor Engine's RPM, Gear, Pressures, temp etc ?

    I wonder does anyone ever do this?
    I need to monitor my engines RPM and all the sensor i can monitor ?

    what kind of hardware required ?
    just like what they do for racing cars, except this monitor by the software.
    I believe sensors needed for engines that desn't has.

    anyone can share ? where to check the hardware kits ?

    Depends how old your car is, if it is new enough and has ODB2 then its extremely easy, google it if you do have it

    Aren't you the one that freaked out when you had a dead pixel on your screen? I can assure you that interfacing with your car will be more difficult than executing a return ship to mp3car.com.

    But if you want to experience it, there's a link to it in the FAQ Emporium.

    gotta see the faq later,
    yes I'm the one who had "1 dead pixel", and mp3car replace me with new one + touch screen. what a great support.
    But .... the shipping cost me US$ 110.
    what a great $

    my car is honda city, just bought it for US$ 18.000, very very expensive here, I could buiy sport car in US w that money.
    but here it's just a piece of metal and an engine.

    I know. I had to learn that becaue people were constantly having problems with the decimal place

    So this thing costs $18,000?
