I got side-tracked doing my upper/lower grillcraft install this weekend. Had to get the radiator painted while it wasn't raining! Of course that means that neither one got completely finished. I'll finish up this weekend and get some pictures posted. The one thing I did different is that I stacked my units on top of each other using the built-in rails, makes for a smaller footprint since I have my speaker amp under my driver seat as well. Pics to come!

Glad you got your install going. The gauges look amazing. I was looking at the Aeroforce dual gauge setup for basic parameter display, nothing fancy, but stumbled on to these PLX's(dm-100). I love the varied display functions they offer! The only hold up would be the wiring of the PLX as it does not seem plug and play like the Aeroforce. Can anyone offer an update on how they are finding their PLX gauge setup? Really would like to go w/the dual dm-100 display...their website is not very clear and haven't had a reply from their customer forum..

New to the forum and looking to do a similar ate up, can anyone (the OP maybe) give me a call to answer so e q's about these... I e-mailed plx but no response yet.

Never mind, got a hold of Tech support from them and they got me squared away, I'm doing 2 DM-6's with vac/boost and an afr module.

That's pretty much my setup also, except I used a DM-6 and a DM-100. The one thing I will say is check out this link for wiring:

http://www.plxdevices.com/forum/view...hp?f=11&t=5481

It may be simpler for you without a DM-100 (or I'm an idiot, which is a likely possibility) but it helped me out with the wiring.

Good luck!

i was told by a friend in the tuner world it is good to put the boost module as close to the boost port as posible (I.E. in the engine bay) to keep the hose as short as posible for an acurite reading? any thoughts on that?

I would perfer them under the seat like yours...

2 other questions i had was do they come with the necessary cables to tether more than one module together?

I want to be able to switch between boost or AFR on either my left or right gauge, (run boos on numerical and graph on both or AFR same on both)

and does the right gauge obscure the botom portion of the fuel gauge?
