Recieved my OBDII Bluetooth scanner, I would have liked to get an actual shot of my phone in the cardock displaying the info but that means I'll have to dig up my camera, in the meantime here is a screenshot from the phone, still have some playing around to do with placement and what gauges to display.



I think this is what I'm going with for the main screen (no data as it was not connected when this was taken):

Transmission cooler received in the mail today and installed:

















Definetly makes a difference, I used to sit at 170ish when cruising at 50 mph in the morning on a 60ish degree day and this morning it was 140ish.

It's a bluetooth scanner hooked up to my android phone. They are relative inexpensive. And yes it can pull and reset codes using the Torque app for android. I got mine from amazon here:

Apparently the Bluetooth does not work with iPhone, but they do have a wifi version that will work.
