I want to be able to install an LCD screen into my EL ghia dash, connect it to a laptop which is connected to the ECU giving me a telemetry type read out while driving.

Its basically taking the readings that are already available and putting them into a readable format...

Sounds easy....but is it possible? Has it been done?

Any help would be great

Thanks

Yeh, thats just the dash shroud for sale.

I'll be using a MoTeC M800 for my real time monitoring. There's currently no way possible to just 'plug in' to your EEC-IV or EEC-V ECU. You'll have to look after-market.

EMS8860 has nice monitoring abilities in its software, but the MoTeC software is by far the best - fully customisable display. Just about anything you could imagine can be monitored in real time.

You'll be looking at ~$3000-4000 for something simiar to the EMS8860, all the way up to $8000-9000 for something like the MoTeC M800.
