    oooh im liking the look of this, not sure if id prefer it over VAG Com though as i wouldnt be able to post figures up on here to ask whats wrong, also id be worried about making the car 'look' modified (my thing i dont expect many to share the same view):think:

    Looks bloody good though, and if i were to want to fit a boost gauge id defo go for this option instead - good value and looks excellent

    I can check on any cars in the edinburgh/fife area to confirm what will be seen on the various models if there is anyone around, it is a 10 min job.

    Clatch, the AGU is a pain as it doesn't show boost via vag-com.

    Below are the measuring blocks that the liquid uses, so anyone can check what they will or won't see with the liquid.

    MAF - 2
    RPM - 2
    TIMING CORRECTION - 20
    BOOST PRESSURE - 115
    ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE - 113
    AIR INTAKE TEMP - 4
    COOLANT TEMP - 4
    SPEED - 5
    REQUESTED BOOST - 115
    EXHAUST TEMP - 112
    LAMBDA - 31
    N75 - 114
    MISFIRE - 15, 16
    OIL TEMP - 50 (FROM INSTRUMENT PANEL)

    Cheers
    Jim

    Freegeek, I have an APY S3, and I also have a GReddy Informeter which is very similar to what your thing does actually. Using the Honda settings(nothing else works), everything seems to work apart from Boost Pressure where there is no signal, but Honda don't make a Turbocharged roadcar(Excl. diesels), so maybe this is a reason why it doesn't show anything for the boost pressure menu.

    Not too sure if this info is any help to you at all, but thought I would mention it...

    Thanks, the Informeter uses OBDII to get the data and non of the GolfMK4 platform cars gives bosst info over OBDII so it is no surpise you could not see anything.

    The liquid uses KW1281 the VAG propriatery protocol to get boost info, so unfortunately we are no further forwards.

    We need someone with an APY egine and a vag-com lead to have a look and see if the bosst info is displayed.

    Try asking over at the vag-com area, you may get more luck there.

    Hi freegeek!

    I have a 1.8T AMK 2001 S3.
    Is the oil temp issue finally solved? Or we have to wait for v1.08?
    Please give feedback and thanks in advance!
    The reference on your site is still not updated...

    I finally got a chance to test on a A4 yesterday and it worked just fine, it turns out that diffrent dash boards work at different baud rates. I needed to put in some auto baud rate software in.

    I will include this in the next official release of software, but put it into any new S3 orders.

    Hi Jim,

    You should find most the functions working with APY, with only the following to really note..

    No EGT probe.
    No misfire counters.

    Lambda is narrow band.

    Oil temp from the dash I have no idea !

    Cheers
    Morgan

    Pull the slats out first and put your hand in it and pull!! Rather than shoving a screwdriver down the side

    Also it will be tight once you have popped it half out as the wires for the illumination aren't very long at all, so you will need a pair of long nose wire cutters to give to as much slack as poss to make it easier to connect when you put it back in.

    I hope you sent it to Nev and not Nuri, turn round on the modified vents is a couple of weeks, turn round on the insert is a couple of days.

    what are those Don, AFR and boost? Did you weld in another lamda boss for the AFR? or use the post cat boss after a decat? Be interesting to have a wideband readout.

    Not sure if my AUM is wideband or narrowband lamda as standard now..... Bill/tufty?
