My question is - I'm curious to know what it would take to put Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) and Boost pressure on my frontend. I'm looking at an open source project - RoadRunner and it seems to have lots of aftermarket support. I have access to a pressure transducer which will output a 0-10VDC signal, but am not coming up with much in the way of controlling my "I/O". www.measurementcomputing.com
sells a DAQ board with temperature inputs, (type K is what will be used if I remember right) but at $499.99 it's a little steep. I'm looking for some ideas on how this could be implemented, I'm completely gutting and redoing a 98' Dodge 2500 Cummins and since its been turned up (500+HP), instrumentation is a must have. I'd like to invest some money in my CarPC setup to do it rather than do mechanical style gauges, and I figured what better way to show off the power of my CarPC than to have boost & egt displayed on the frontend.
Lemme know what you guys think, this site is an awesome resource!
