At the moment the cheapest I can see is 204.

    Group buy per chance?

    You can actually clear ECU error codes with the liquid S3 along with reset the throttle body position, count misfires on each cylinder, timing pull and obviously a lot more, there has also just been a software update which allows you to have a multi gauge (oil,coolant,intake & exhaust temp) to.

    Yeah, I'm in IT, but not car-related (for now )

    I don't know where to get the cheapest ones, but would suggest getting one of the supported devices as listed on the Rev developer website:

    http://www.plxkiwi.com

    http://www.obd-2.de
    http://www.obdkey.com

    Personally, I'd go for the pixkiwi device as it looks like it's the smallest and will not stick out too much when in use. Although it's not the cheapest if you take shipping and import duty into consideration (unless you can persuade them to supply it to you as a 'sample'), so it's your call.

    S, I appreciate the liquid S3 features and have seen it in use and know that it's a great product. For me though, the biggest selling point of the iPhone app is the portability and compatibility with other car makes. As much as I love my S3, time will come to change to something else and being able to just unplug the kit and plug it into the new car is priceless. Add to that the option of being able to plug it into your mate's car for basic diagnostics or comprison on a track is a great thing.

    Saing that, liquid S3 can be easily housed in a small plastic case and mounted on the dash/windscreen, which would make it much more portable. I think I just had a new product idea for Race Diagnostics to consider

    See here for the new speed/rpm display http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7NOnCJ0CmY (its been modded a bit since i made the video), and of course it does show manifold pressure, that is your boost pressure and it automatically subtracts the barometric pressure from the boost before displaying the results.



    Has anyone tried the iphine app yet, I am willing to bet it wont show boost pressure.

    I've used the liquid S3 and think it's really good, out of interest though what's the max figures the device will go to for boost, when I used it I was getting 1.55 bar max straight away all the time, it didn't seem to deviate...or is that right ?

    The max boost that the map sensor can read is 1.56 bar, if you boost to a higher level,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the computer say no.

    surely if this rev app connects via wifi then there will be some sort of delay in readings i would of thought a direct wire to the connector would be more accurate thatn a fly-by wire device? theres another advantage of the liquid s3. P.S surely they must make a windows based software version for other wifi ready phones such as the nokia n95 etc?

    not entirely correct tho... barometric pressure, manifold pressure and boost pressure are all available in Liqui... (technically not manifold pressure as the map sensor is'nt in the right location to measure vacuum, but thats not a liqui thing, but a car thing)

    I really want one but as I already have a Ross0Tech cable I cant justify the money. Plus the other half keeps harping on at me about buying a house next year and not spending so much on my car
