I was thinking more about using it to display more of the regular parameters.

the back plug and the side plug are paralleled together so I could just use network cable to run one to another. I haven't looked into the current draw of one and was more of one of those things I needed to look into. the bigger issue is justifying the cost. I have one and it was expensive (relatively speaking) and I won't really gain much from having the second one.

it would be more of a pet project for me. if I could get one cheap, I would do it but scangauge and cheap doesn't go together

There's also DashDyno ($330 and up) but it's not cheaper...but it will do data logging and a few other things.

Does anyone know if the scangauge has a stopwatch and can time you doing 0-60mph?

Anyways....I think my wife may be getting me the SG II for Christmas. We'll see

I believe Wayne Gerdes and some others on cleanmpg use 2 linked together.
I wonder if you connect it to a laptop for data logging.

It should be easy, just plug-and-play. The cost would be the hard part.
