    Tire pressure monitoring...but for air suspension..?

    I have a quick question about this kit;

    http://www.mp3car.com/index.php/213-...MS-Review.html

    It seems that it monitors the pressure in all 4 corners; which is exactly what I would need to do for my Air suspension. I rather have a picture (outlined) of my car on my dash embedded into my carputer rather than 2 ugly gauges.

    The problem is with this kit the sensors are in the valves if I am correct in my research? So I am wondering how I would go about converting this kit for air suspension (in which I would have to plumb the sensors in line with the bag (t fitting)

    Not sure if this has been done before or not or if there is a kit for this?

    A cheaper and easier option would be to use a Fusion Brain with sensors from Dakota Digital. This is more of a plug and play option that won't require any special mods to your air systems. I have only the one 400PSI sensor screwed directly into an unused port on my tank. Check out these threads:

    Those links helped a bunch thanks!

    I am confused about if I need pressure senders (the Dakota ones) or do I just relays, because in of the links it looks like the diagram just shows relays?

    Is there a more in depth tutorial as far as the actual wiring of the system goes? Also am I able to do 5 inputs (one for each bag and then the tank pressure..or no?)
    Also I would be all to skin my own car correct?
