Microtech Gauge display

I heard that the microtech has a feature when connected to a computer that shows analog gauges updated in real time. My question is what gauges can it display? how accurate are they? what do they look like? does anyone have any pictures? do any other ECUs have features like this?

My plan is to replace the stock gauge cluster with an LCD screen and have gauges displayed there. This will be a heavy influence on which ECU I choose.

The screen isn't that big.

I plan on getting it for my car in a couple of weeks. I would think that the digital readout would be alot more accurate than any manual gauge. My mechanic gave me a quick preview of it. There are four programmable warning lights and lots of other stuff. In fact, just read about it here......

I guess the image code is off.....

Wow, I never thought about that, is it possible to hook up a computer type screen to read the real time gauges?

If you just want analog "style/looking" gauges and don't need all the stuff the MT has, then you should look into the HKS camp. All the HKS sensors (elec.) send the info to the Camp. box. Then the box shows all the gauges in analog "look" to a monitor. Think of it as every gauge needed in a 7.2" TV.

well, I kinda need the whole engine management part too... Its just been really hard for me to decide which one to get, so im trying to consider every aspect of the ECU. If it can have regular-looking gauges, then I dont need to buy aftermarket ones at $200 a pop.
