Superchips programmer for TJ or real-time sensor data?.... anyone used one?

I have a special project I am working on, on my TJ and I am looking for a device that can read real-time sensor data, like O2 (front/rear), Coolant, Intake Temp, Timing Advance, MAF, and MAP.
Does the Superchips do this? Know of something that does? I bought a Ultra-Gauge (which is AWESOME btw), and it kicks a$$ in Japanese cars (11-bit CAN OBD-II), with 50+ sensor read-out, but it does not read the OBD-II version in Chryslers

If anyone has any knowledge how/what device I can use to read these sensors in real-time, please let me know-

I have a 4.0L 5sp

Thanks!!!

Take a look at the Diablo Trinity, it may have what you are looking for.

Scangauge II

I have one, it's relatively cheap, and reads/clears CELs.

I am installing a HHO kit. Hydrogen generator, using water, converting it to Hydrogen (x2) and Oxygen, pump it into the intake and hope to see 10~15 MPG improvements. I have done this in my other car and it's quite the project, but once done, it's amazing to say your car runs on water, and you get twice the mileage, BUT to accomplish this, it requires specific tuning of sensors to trick the ECM into thinking that it is still getting the 14.7:1 A/F ratio, so getting real-time sensor data is critical. The Ultra-Gauge is totaly sweet, it just doesn't support ISO OBD-II. Need to trick MAP, IAT, CTS, and O2.

Research it, the technology is out there. You just need to put the time in. PM Me if you want specific information.

If you do a search here on JF you will find threads where people have tried before with jeeps. Don't recall seeing any though were people had much success. If you do please come back and post. Good luck.

but the short answer is don't bother. keep your engine maintained, keep your foot off the throttle and drive under 60mph...you'll see more worthwhile improvement....and its free!

Luckily I can happily disagree having done this in another vehicle with an average of 70% improvement,and that's on a newer vehicle with a tricky Wideband O2 sensor. The TJ should be much easier with a single Narrow band O2 pre cat. I'll be happy to save money, improve performance, and have much cleaner emissions. But if you disagree or think its a pharce, sorry... Your loss!

Why not do a complete write up, dyno tests and later on an engine tear down to see how metal handles water.

Flesheater- your assumptions make you look silly. There is no 'water'. Look up electrolisys, and/or hydrogen generator. Maybe you can weigh in with more educated comments.
