I've got an app on my GS3 and a bluetooth OBDII adapter I bought off ebay that lets me see all kinds of stuff. It's kind of sweet and only cost $25 total for everything.

Same adapter I have but the app I have is called Torque Pro OBDII. It was on sale for $.99 when the app store it it's billionth download or whatever last year so it's definitely been worth that.

Oh I don't think they are bad cars if you need something to drive around but I just think they are a waste of time to put money into. It just seems though their are a tone of ricers with them putting useless mods into them and stupid stickers like "my vtec goes bwwwwwwwaaaaaaaahhhh!!!" and "vtec it goes" it's just annoying to look at.

So when are we getting pics of this guys engine bay? lol

Sorry ive been busy, i work on cars all day and icant find a turbo on mine so im guessing the gauge is just not reading right, and i love my v6 its reliable, decent torque just not enough acceleration, its the best car ive ever had though

---------- Post added at 09:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:05 PM ----------

Ima show you guys pictures when i leave in a wile sorry for the delay

---------- Post added at 09:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:06 PM ----------

I have a special android phone( i mean that by no service in it) lol but i got the elm 327 box for $13.00 on amazon and its great, has gauges for every sensor mulitple gauge styles to choose from , and they are very accurate. For an iphone you need the wifi addapter, i was mad when i got mine that it wouldnt work on my iphone so i bought a cheap android for the bluetooth addapter..on iphones with the wifi box you can actually tune your car with it.. And ill send pics in a few

don't take this the wrong way but your acceleration issue isn't in the car so much but with your wheels in the sig if those are the ones you currently run

Yeah there 245/35R20s they came with the car they look really good but do you think that affects the acceleration that much?

Yes wheels make a big difference. Those 20's are heavy

+100

94-04 look way out of whack with anything bigger than an 18". Those 20's will not only hurt performance, but your braking, and put extra strain on your suspension as well. Ditch em and get a set of 17"-18" wheels.

Dude, 20s are absolute crap for acceleration.. go with a set of nice 15s/16s for better bite. And a set of gears wouldn't hurt.. 2:73s I believe are stock in the 6ers...whatever they are they suck. Lol

More rim= more rotational mass so takes longer to get that baby spinning

Maybe ill sell mine and get some 17s or 18s the only reason i have the 20s on still is because its what really makes my car stand out from the rest since there so clean i get compliments daily but maybe it is time to sell em and get some smaller wheels

Lol i would never compliment 20s on a new edge. I would rather not stand out then stand out in the way those do.

The area I live in, you get complimented on your rims on Monday, come out Tuesday morning and your cars on bricks... 20s look good on some cars, but on new edge or older mustangs they're just too big. they're good looking rims, id put them on a lowered truck or something but keep mustangs muscle.. lol

Speaking of keeping mustangs muscle, I saw a new edge v6 with a ricer fart can on it... I almost cried.

And to me, new edges with 20" rims on them might as well look like this

I do t think it's bad if it doesn't look so stupid. And doesn't sound like a weed eater.
