MSD Dashhawk

For those not in the know, a MSD Dashhawk is an overpriced ODBII reading device that does all kinds of cool stuff (lets hope).

For those who read my "UPS Blows" thread should know that UPS delivered this replacement and dropped if off, NO SIG or even ringing the doorbell.

I will play with it tomorrow, I think I will mount it on the steering column shaft as it also has some limited virtual gauges options.



It is very compact

This pic is pointless.

It is the only one that turned out so far.

It serves as an active multigauge, you can set the screen to show you as much or as little as you want while driving.

It is also a scan tool. It reads and displays codes (even tells you what they are) and you can clear them (in theory, we'll see)

It also is datalogger and can act as shift light.

For example, to find your best shift points. You can log a few 0-100 pulls and upload the info into your PC using the included software. It gives you a bunch a graphs you can use to load a shift light program to display a red light at the predetermined "best" RPM per gear.

It is updateable via the internet.

Programmable to match the existing "Saab Green" interior dash lighting scheme.

It does a bunch of other shit too.

I am trying to find a way to mount it so that it is sturdy but also can be removed (no thwart theft and if someone needs me to clear a CEL or code).

It retails for $429 but can be readily found for $299.

It does much much than originally thought, I will post a full review in the near future.
