Who: MSD Ignition
Rides: Any OBDII-equipped vehicle
Most, if not all, cars these days have what we call "idiot lights" on them. By the time these warning lights come on, "D'oh!" It's too late. Now, you are left on the side of the road like Nads' oil-bleeding RSX. With the MSD Dashhawk, basic data- like engine speed and temperature- are available. However, the Dashhawk will provide you with detailed data that your vehicle's gauges cannot, such as timing advance, intake air temperature, mass air flow and much more! It can also log quarter-mile times/e.t. with 60 ft. and 1/8-mile splits, as well as 0-60 mph information and rpm, in addition to an audio visual alarm that can be used to warn you for perimeters beyond suitable ranges. Best of all, there's a data-logging capability that can record up to five or more than 75 choices parameters at one time. They can then be uploaded to a PC, viewed on a graph and played in real-time to monitor any of the five logs you choose. For those of you who still want a bit of bling, the LED backlight color can also be customized to match your dash lights.
