That's wayyyyy too fancy :lol:I don't get what it does with wifi. Are there no wires between the cab and engine and it just has a wireless sending unit thinger in the engine compartment?

Sorry to sound down on the tech age but... What happens if you forget your iPhone at home or the office? Are you without gauges? How about if your phone rings? How do you talk on the phone and watch your gauges? How about if the battery dies in your phone? Your without gauges again? I got to admit its extremely fancy... But seem like its got a few flaws... Nice part about old school gauges... No matter what there always there. Regardless of the box, programmer, etc...:rolleyes:

He has a real fuel pressure gauge. You can get by without the rest. I think most people know when their EGT gets out of hand and how to keep it under the limit. I could probably get rid of mine and tell you exactly where EGT is all the time. He also has a real trans temp gauge. Thought he had a 3rd but don't remember what it was. Another thing, 12V people live without that lol, so it's not like the phone messing up is the end of the world. I can put EGT/Boost/Fuel pressure on mine if I want, beyond that, not really anything. I would say if you were pulling a trailer you wouldn't pull it out of park without an EGT gauge and I am sure John knows this. In other words, I don't see any problem with it. If I had my way I would drag the whole laptop with me everywhere with all that on it. :drool:

Here's what doesn't add up with "where Mike lives".

He has no cell phone service where he lives...

So on this list:

What happens if you forget your iPhone at home or the office? Are you without gauges?

No reason to take it out of the truck since you have no service.

How about if your phone rings? How do you talk on the phone and watch your gauges?

Won't ring if you have no service.

How about if the battery dies in your phone? Your without gauges again?

Because you have no service and will just leave it in the truck, it will have a car charger.

:lmao::moon:

I would get rid of all my gauges for that thing. So John, is it possible to do that on a laptop? I figure if it's an app for a phone there has to be a program for it for the laptop as well. Then the wifi is also in the laptop so good there. I got to thinking and it would be neat if something showed a spreadsheet of all the parameters your monitoring, as many as you could put on there and still be able to see. Then set limits but not limits that actually change any settings on the engine, just limits for your own sakes so the numbers will turn red when they get out of your comfort zone. Then since you had so many up that you could barely read them, it would automatically enlarge the red one to most of the screen so you could read it easily and after 10 seconds (since you now notice it) have it scale down to maybe 1/4 of the screen so you can see if something else is effecting it that just happens to be in the comfort zone. If 2 or more are red it would just split them up, so 4 reds would just bring all of them each to 1/4 part of the screen. In that case I would say you better just pull over :lmao:

Don't think possible to do on laptop as they only ported to ipod/ipad/iphone app.

No DROID or other OS.

Sure if you could write apps and hack it could be possible .......

I heard of 1 guy running it on an IPAD - reckon that would be SWEET !!

:)

Hey HD.

Yeah its cool. Wish they would increase the txt sizes a little bit on the outer gauges.

Yeah no pulse - but thats also another good thing - you can run with pulse or POD instead of WIFI if you wanted to for some reason. You can even sell the IQUAD part of it ...... its just a wifi module that plus into the control port :)

i noticed that the text was a little small, if you dont mind me askin what was the additional cost of the wifi adapter and how do you change the power settings on the quad?

How much power does it add? How much power does that edge juice add? What else does it do in comparison with the juice you had?

Well I got the whole kit (QUAD + harness + wifi module) for $515 on 10% sale.

To buy additional (to use with existing IQUAD) I think its about $200

http://www.cumminsperformanceparts.com/iquwimo.html

You just hit a (+) or a (-) button to increase from PL01->PL10

--- Update to the previous post...

Juice is 120HP. QUAD is 180HP.

I do notice the extra power, but its "almost" too much. HAHA.

I think on dyno's the guys are saying QUAD does around 30RWHP extra ..........

Not alot different to juice - it has a few extra parameters - including ..... wait for it ..... a HIGH IDLE FEATURE ....... but haven't checked it out yet as I don't live in cold climates !!

So apart from touchscreen/color display and being funky - and small power ..... not a lot of difference.

The thing I like most asides the "fancy" part and being touch screen -> is the yellow warning bar on the parameters being monitored. So even if not part of your 5 guage display (juice has 4) ...... you can still see if an alarm trips .......

I still reckon this would ROCK with an IPAD ..........but $$

LT smoke

hmmm heads up fighter display on a cummins .......all we need now is the arming button for the missles and a good tone buzzer in the cab for a positive lock on any hostile rice burners...suppose we can also put a waarning alarm similar to the radar sam and air to air missle lock ons for various parameters like egt over boost low fuel pressure and overheated tranny

Heck yeah. Build us one of those LT/ISX. We almost have it with the smoke switch - just add an arming sequence/sound to one of those safety switches with the plate over the top (below) post-10132-138698174467_thumb.jpg So it would go like this. RiceBurner approaches. Gets annoying. You slow down ...... timing him for the move/kill. As you thing he gets ready to move .... you flip the red saftey A echo pulses through the cab ...... "brrb brrb" Red Lights flash on the cab console ....... He indicates to shift lanes ........ too late bud You flip the switch ....... instant kill :gun: You take off feeling much better for the day:burnout: hahahahahahahahah :lmao::lmao::lmao2::lmao:
