Both are for my 6.0 ls zj project. For the gauges on the engine swap I'm putting auto meter fuel level, op gauges, then that ecoroute will plug into my obdII plug and Bluetooth my engine functions to my Garmin gps. It makes the Garmin like a edge cts touch screen, with 5 gauges of whatever you want to monitor, but also is a gps. Since I'm going to fab a new dash counsel I bought the cheetah cheap for my th350.

I ohm'd them out, and they all were within the specs I found online. I was getting heavy black smoke out the exhaust - I think one or two of them were just spraying full time.

I should have put them in the truck before i did the intake swap as a means of limiting the amount of change at once. When I got the thing started, I was PO'd that it was running so bad - I thought I'd missed something serious on the intake swap.

I'm going to find some clear tubing and make a test stand for them, and run some cleaner through them, and I will know which ones are good and which are not.

Cool, post the pics of the tester and the results

I should add that anyone looking for a code scanner, a digital gauge, or just a gps, this setup is the way to go. It tells you your instant mileage, you can watch all your engine functions, check, and clear codes, and best of all I bought it all new off eBay for $250. It does more than my edge cts insight in my dmax, and cost $150 less. I highly recommend looking into one of these bad boys.

I agree. I actually wasn't a fan of Garmin. I bought one on the way to the cities because I took my avalanche and some jackwagon stole my portable a while ago. While waiting for the wife, shopping, I read the crap they send with, and there it was, ecoroute. I then spent a couple hours researching it, sold.

Is there a common issue for the ABS on these? My lights not on but the ABS most definitely does not work.

ABS sucks on the ZJ. It probably brakes better now. I pulled the ABS relay on my last ZJ when I got 33"s put on. Worked much better.

Does your abs light come on when you turn the key to the on position.
