These are the code that I have working on mine.

Coolant Temp:
TXD: C410F1221139
RXF: 046205110639
RXD Engine: 3008
MTH: 00010002007F
NAM: ect

The value displayed by this XGauge is only valid after the coolant temperature gets above 127* F. Before the engine is warmed up the displayed value will go up to 255 about double actual then starts over at 127. This is becasue this PID is scaled for two different ranges. It works good on my 2000 7.3 and seems to be accurate. This has been a long sought after XGauge for the 7.3 crowd for quite some time.

Glow Plug Percent:
TXD: C410F1221430
RXF: 046205140630
RXD: 3008
MTH: 0F5127100000
NAM: gp%

This is a good way to see how long your glow plugs are staying on. They will stay on for quite a while after the engine is running and the glow plug (wait to start) light has gone out.
Engine Oil Temp:
TXD: C410F1221310
RXF: 046205130610
RXD: 3010
MTH: 000901F4FFFD8
NAM: EOT

IPR Duty Cycle:
TXD: C410F1221434
RXF: 046205140634
RXD: 3008
MTH: 006400FF0000
NAM: IPR

Injection Control Pressure:
TXD: C410F1221446
RXF: 046205140646
RXD: 3010
MTH: 003800640000
NAM: ICP

Exhuast Back Pressure:
TXD: C410F1221445
RXF: 046205140645
RXD: 3010
MTH: 016C03E80000
NAM: EBP

Transmission Fluid Temp: (This one is already documented in their XGauge Ford PWM section)
TXD: C410F1221674
RXF: 046205160674
RXD: 3010
MTH: 000100080000
NAM: TFT

Good Info!

Awesome Articatdan, that is great info, I will take a look at the ECT.
2000 CC 6spd? I tried to find one, but couldn't looks like I'll be
doing the 4R100 to ZF6 swap.

Can you set a certain parameter, so that if you say hit 210* EOT it send an alert, or maybe 210* Tranny temp?

Does it flash or something if hits the top end?

I've been using the coolant temp and oil temp gauges for some time now. One thing I've noticed is that oil temp seems to jump in 5*F increments. I typically just monitor coolant temp as it is usually within 5*F of oil temp.

Since I've had this installed, I've noticed that the coolant temp seems to vary quite a bit depending on load and ambient air temp. Typically I've seen it from 150 - 180*F.

I used to have the Scangauge in my TDI Jetta. In that car the engine would warm up to 195*F and then it would stay there in all except the most severe conditions. I assumed that was because the thermostat opened at that temperature and kept the temp at a constant.

In my truck however, I've never seen that effect at any temperature, it never seems to hover around any particular temperature. So assuming this gauge can be trusted to be accurate, and is measuring the temperature in an appropriate location, this leads me to question whether my thermostat is stuck open. The truck runs fine and I've never noticed a lack of heat in the winter, though sometimes I have to keep it cranked to keep the windows completely free of fog on sub 0*F days.

So for those of you running this gauge, what coolant and/or oil temps do you typically see when running empty?

If my engine is running too cool, what are the possible consequences of that?

Thanks for the help.

The coolant temp is worthless - it isn't monitored by the PCM so its just a made up number on the 7.3. My engine oil temp usually runs right at my coolant temp ( I have an independent gauge) which is around 185-190° That doesn't vary much from "winter" to summer, so I'm assuming its thermostat driven given the great cooling system we have for these engines.

Great info!
When setting up does it matter what Diesel option you choose? Mine has Diesela or Dieselb

Never Mind, just saw it on Page 13 of the manual.Doooh

RT, can I see a picture of your mount?

Sure. I took a 2x6 scrap and cut it down to fit into that coin recess. I drilled a hole all the way through it such that it lined up with the plug in on the back of the scangauge and then used Velcro to attach the Scangauge to the wood after the cable was plugged in. A corresponding hole in the back of the coin recess and it looks like it belongs there:

mine is wedged in with folded cardboard from an Advil box.
Until I make it more permanent.

Yes. Boost, tranny temp, EGT and the DP-Tuner switcher up there.

That's sweet. My problem is I'm still addicted to nicotine and can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke so I have those plastic rain guards on the door so I can have the window cracked so the draft pull smoke out of the cab. These make that already big pillar really big. If I put a pillar gauge up there, the pillar would be massive and Ide be running over bikers. Another reason to quit. I bet your truck looks like a big rig inside with all of those gauges at night.

Finally bought my ScanGuage II.

Best price was online at Advance Auto Parts for $159.99 and there is a 20% discount code on the Advance Auto website which brought the price down to $128. Available for immediate store pickup.

I have entered in the X-Guage formulas found in this thread as well as the ones in the booklet found in the packaging.

This is a "must-have" for the 7.3 PSD and much cheaper than all the individual guages for those guys on a budget.

Cheers

I have just purchased a ScanGuage II and created these X-Gauges.

The road to my house climbs 3,200' in 17 miles with various grades. Its full of twists, turns and switchbacks so its tough to go faster than 30 mph. I have a 4R100 so I place it in 2nd and drive about 30 mph @ 2,100 RPMs. Today was the first day I ever had any gauge and the SCII displayed the following when I topped out the climb running no trailer and only 300-lbs of gear in the bed:

EOT -- 218*
ECT -- 206*

Assuming the SCII is functioning properly, should I be worried about this 12* Delta?

I have 3,700 miles on Shell Rotella T6 and 5,000 on a new 195* T-stat and fresh ELC Coolant.

My fan never kicked in hard enough to make any noise.

Appreciate your comments.

Read post 27. ECT is not a real number in the 7.3 unless you have a standard transmission.

EGT ?

Good morning,

Can we get EGT on the ScanGuage-II for our 7.3 PSD ?

Thanks
