I’m at a crossroads with my ’09 stang. At first the GT gave me grins, roasting tires while working all of the shiny doo-dads and knobs. A few years passed, and now I’m starting to get a little bored, so it’s time to start saddling up the horse with more ponies and maybe something bright and flashy to keep my attention.
I hit up a few sites and ended up on AutoAnything.com. I could see a ton of stuff that would fit my car but one thing stood out, the Superchips iHawk Performance Monitor. The reasons were simple: I’m curious what my car is thinking while I’m mashing the pedal. I want to know if the performance parts that I threw on the motor actually did something and the fact that my iPhone is practically surgically attached to my hand.
SC iHawk app (yeah, there’s an app for that) from iTunes.
Of course, it’s much easier to see what’s going on when it’s connected to your iPad but the iPhone works fine. I was really impressed with the data logging feature, since it’s sometimes hard to take your eyes off of the road to look at the screen while you’re full-on fast-n-furious. Issues like cylinder misfires are way easier to find in the log, then trying to pay close enough attention while driving. All in all, I like the iHawk and really want to test out this baby with some go-fast goodies like a Mangnaflow cat-back exhaust and a K&N intake. I had a good experience with AutoAnything so I will probably deal with them again.
