I was wondering if anyone was running a gauge cluster on their iPhone? I was looking at buying an Edge CTS2 monitor, but they can’t read boost or oil pressure on our vehicles for some reason. I’m hoping someone has an obd interface that can monitor those two things 🤞🏼🤞🏼

You will need to install an oil pressure sensor, but it will not be through OBDII. Oil pressure is an on or off switch on these cars. It does not report a reading. It only completes the circuit when the oil pressure goes below a certain threshold at a certain rpm range.

The only way to get a reading on the boost is the Boost sensor on top of the intercooler. The ECU uses that to determine requested vs actual boost so it can detect something wrong in the system.
