These speeds are what shows best on my scangauge too.

Thanks for the pics, looks like it's either going behind the steering wheel or in the upper glove box behind the steering wheel, but I'd hate to have it open whenever I drive....but I guess it would be out of the way when I'm not in the car

Scanguage II

I was going to order mine from a form vendor, but they are no longer valid. So, could someone point me to a reliable stocking vendor with good pricing, please!

BTW, If I read correctly you will be able to interface the Scanguage with your PC in the near future?

blacksan,

Here is a link to the vendor we use at CleanMPG.com:

http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-2168984...w.cleanmpg.com

Don't hold your breath on hooking it to a computer anytime soon. That functionality has been promised for a while and will actually be much easier to implement on Linux and Mac first.

Doh - it is supposed to land at Think Geek but something is wrong with the final URL. Here's a direct link:

Ohya,bailout,I forgot to mention,you would also gain more then 20% in time,actual time,like a 100min trip,would become 75min to 80min trip.Time is money to alot of people that have long trips to work,and travel alot.Wouldnt you like to have more time to live aswell,and dont try to come back with some,speed is dangerous shit.

Conversely, these are the people that have the opportunity to make the largest financial and global impacts in how and when they travel.

The quality of my personal time is more important then the quantity of it. If my air and environment are dirty, my neighbors are at war in Iraq to protect the flow of oil, etc. then the quality of my personal time is greatly diminished.

As for the safety of speed the math speaks for itself. Allow me to use Einstein's formula for Kinetic Energy (KE):


where m = mass of object and v = velocity (speed) of object

When a vehicle collides with something its kinetic energy must be transferred or expended. The less KE there is to dump the better off anyone and anything involved is.

However, my slowing down has much more to do with emissions and fuel economy than safety. The physics of air change above 55 MPH and again above 70 MPH, becoming more resistant the faster you go.

Today I saw both kinds that drive most of us drivers crazy. A couple of old persons driving way less than the speed limit backing up traffic as far as the eye can see. And saw a young person passing almost everyone and running red lights which will eventually cause an accident.

Pardon my ignorance, but where exactly does the scan gauge connect to? Next to the hood release lever?

The only things that will let you adjust the VVT-i timing are the Camcon:

http://www.powerenterpriseusa.net/pr...con/camcon.htm

Or Greddy's new V-Manage:

http://www.greddy.com/products/displ...SubCategory=72

Honestly, I don't think a timing adjustment will resolve your engine noises, but you can always give it a try...
