I guess maybe a little off topic, but is there a way to monitor any of the temps like cats or anything on the livewire? Just wondering if there is a way to load any other PID's to this thing. I guess I have more use for something like watching a temp than throttle position. I know you could read them on torque app so I know there is a sensor..

If knock value is negative is that showing degrees of retarded timing?
Another words, is negative knock bad?

Also, do I convert kPa to Psia then subtract 14.7 to get Psig for boost?

Opposite, negative will add timing, positive will reduce timing. But they are not always linear, ie 3 degrees of knock will not always reduce timing 3 degrees.

Boost, roughly yes.

So there's no way to convert the kpa to psi in the PID table? You always have to do the math...

So how much knock would make you nervous?
I know it's been talked about before, but I can't find it....my search-fu is weak on the mobile app.

I wonder the same thing. Is it possible to add PIDs to the Livewire for display gauges or are they preset/canned?

I am aware the config file will log a lot more parameters based on what we choose, but would be nice if I could also monitor those same parameters live from the gauges display. I.e - Knock, EGT, etc

I can't get the config file that corey made to load to my device. It sees the device, but gives me the error it can't comm with the device. Have the newest firm 155.2 or so.
