That 2 plug option gives some flexibility. Did You buy it direct and how long of a wait? I want to get one before starting with intake mods. Good luck with install. This gauge looks pretty cool to be mounted in plain view.

I bought it from the site direct, they are a little backlogged on shipping, but they give you an idea of when to expect it.

It works as advertised. I haven't gone thru all the features yet. You can alter the refresh rate on the readings, but I haven't seen a problem. Also nice not to worry about what the CEL was on for.

Yep. What he said. All in all I'd call it a good buy. It worked on all the cars here, so not a bad deal.

From the main page of their site:

* Reads Trouble Codes
* Reads conditions that set the Trouble Code
* Clears Trouble Codes
* Turns off "Check Engine" light
* Tells you when vehicle is "Ready" to pass OBDII testing
* Make and store up to 10 rewritable special codes
to send to the vehicle computer
* Fuel Economy
* Fuel Rate
* Battery Voltage
* Coolant Temperature
* Intake Air Temperature
* Engine Speed (RPM)
* Vehicle speed (MPH)
* Manifold Pressure (not available on some vehicles)
* Engine Load
* Throttle Position
* Ignition Timing
* Open/Closed Loop
* Maximum Speed
* Average Speed
* Maximum Coolant Temperature
* Maximum RPM
* Driving Time
* Driving Distance
* Fuel Used
* Trip Fuel Economy
* Distance to Empty
* Time to Empty
* Fuel to Empty

How long is the harness, will it reach the pocket under my Headunit?

After looking at the pic, it might be a little to thick.

We should be able to take a longer network cable and replace the included 6 footer with what ever length you need, all you need is a solder iron. 6 feet should be plenty to go from the ODB2 port below the steering wheel to the radio.
