    So I took the plunge and bought a carsoft/INPA kit off eBay. It works great.

    I thought I'd post up some of the live data I captured from INPA today, mainly to let people see what can be read, but also so anyone could tell me if they can see any problems:








    Let me know what you think.

    I'm a bit put off by the coolant, oil and air inlet temperatures. They seem very high. Could INPA be displaying figures in farenheit, despite saying celcius?

    eg:

    169.7F = 76.5C << sounds more like normal water temp to me?

    77.9F = 25.5C << again, more like air intake temperature (still slightly warm)?

    Those temps do look too high and you could be on to something there, I'd be a bit worried about my coolant being that hot if it was true!
