SuperMID still available?

I would like to get one put in my VX. Can I still get one? How much and where do I find it.

Thanks,

Jack

Gammy: check Mark's web site for info on the MID application in a pre-OBD2 Suzuki (Metro) G10. He just installed one:

Mark used to be an (over)active member here, but had to kick the habit and hasn't been around in a while. He's currently sorting out the Metro-specific MID calibration issues, which are unique for each car.

What do these things do? I tried to Google "SuperMID" blah blah, etc...and came up with nothing. Do these computers just tell you what MPG you're getting, or do they actually help improve your MPG (remapping ECU, etc.)? I'm interested...but only if it's going to make the FE better; I don't care for it if it's just some more eye candy to throw money away on.

It doesn't do remapping. It's instrumentation. It's not a commercial product. The builder is a member here (and on other forums), and it started out as a tool for expanding the information available for Prius drivers. Do a local search here and you'll find a number of threads about them. SVOboy, krousdb, and Mark (the link a couple of posts back) have installed them.

I doubt anyone here would call it eye candy - some kind of FE instrumentation is pretty much required if you're serious about refining your driving, or for testing the in/effectiveness of specific mods/techniques.

I see. So would this little gadget help me determine (based on my driving habits) which shift points are best for me by where in the powerband (versus load) I shift? How often is MPG recalculated with this thing? These are actually some of the questions I was about to post to this message board ....but I'll post a separate question for that now.

The instantaneous and average FE is updated every 1/2 second. The SuperMID is not eye candy, it is serious information for people who are serious about improving FE. It can help you determine what shift points to use, how much throttle, which route yields the best FE, when you injectors are shut down and much more. It provides instantaneous feedback to what your foot is doing.

Is it back lit so you can see it at night? The screen seems hard to read.

Hey, I don't have one, but that is a cash resource issue, not a eye-candy one. If you check out the Garage, you will generally find that almost everyone who is getting higher mileage is using either a scangauge or a supermid. Without it, you only have limited, feedback to help you adapt to utilizing your specific vehicle, as effectively as appears to be possible. If you can afford the cost, I'd recommend getting one. If you can afford two, I'll let you buy me one also, OK?
