No sway bars? Is that good or bad?
I've spoken with a few people that have the tube subframe and they do not notice the sway bar being gone. I'm sure they aren't cornering at high rates of speed or making quick directional changes though. The way I drive my V, I will probable get that down the road. It's all straight line for me. I really don't take hard corners with it.

I would imagine you could improve the rear sway bar to help compensate for the front sway bar not being there.

If you're not going for a new PB on on-ramps, then you're doing it wrong.

There's one 270* over-pass on-ramp that I've only gotten to 82mph on, but it's scary. :D

Actually...no. In fact you would more likely want to remove the rear or disconnect its links.
having the rear bar with no front in a front-engined chassis will foster surprising oversteer.
You would want to go for 'balance' instead of that set up.

Got the drag pack artwork hung up. So much room for activities now.

I’m also going to try this OBD2 splitter out. I’d like to be able to see my Aeroforce gauge when I’m data logging with HPT since I have an analog port for actual oil temp

I’d be curious if they can communicate at the same time or it causes too much noise.

Using the spliiter, I dont believe you can have 2 devices polling at the same time.

I wonder why it won't work...???
Because data doesn’t just dump to either one. The Aeroforce or HP Tuners module or whatever monitoring device polls for information on each channel. The gauge sends out a request for last known value on xxx channel for which ever channels are requested at whatever sample rate is provided.

The protocol isn’t designed to handle request from more than one outside device at a time through the OBD port.

Same thing happens on radio networks. You get one radio in a field of radios that talks out of turn (chirper) it brings down your comms on everything tied to the same master device as the chirper.

That’s awesome!

I could’ve sworn a few years ago the general consensus was no. Thanks for not taking my word for it!
Oh, probably, but now that shit works. You cannot write your PCM with HPT while the Aeroforce is connected. You do have to unplug it while writing.

I use my Aeroforce to monitor oil temps for the engine. The factory engine oil temp output is a predicted number and no where near accurate with an aftermarket iron block, lol. Once I see oil temps hit 180F, I can give her the sauce.

When I get home today, I'll share the connector I got. it was from Ebay and was $20 shipped.

So just to be clear, with this splitter, you can data log and have an Aeroforce or other such gauge in place and running, you just can't make adjustments to tunes while said gauge is plugged in.

Is this correct?

I ask because I will be changing out entertainment stack soon and the clock can go bye-bye and a gauge could go in and I would like to log and have a gauge.
