Conversion to Digital Gauges?

Curious if anyone has converted their gauge cluster to digital?

One option I've considered is it may not be worth the time/effort and I may look at a solution where a tablet is mounted in front of the gauges with something like Torque Pro running.

Already did it...well my RPD does it :P

I'd love something like an LCD screen like in the new XTS/CTS

I have a similar question, can I swap the regular boost gauge for the rpd?

I heard the RPD doesn't react well to tuned/modified LNFs. Better you stick with the analog gauge and throw on an Interceptor or something.

You can switch to the RPD with some searching you'll find the CSS thread, but only on 09-10's not 08's. As PJ said though, it's not the best with something highly modified.

I like the factory look of the rpd. I don't plan on highly modifying my car though. Just some bolt ons for now. At least until it's paid off and I get another car so it can be my toy.

At what point does it become not so good?

Boost doesn't read above 25 PSI I believe, estimated HP numbers are off as soon as it's tuned other than that I believe most of the other sensors work.

Think this guy has about what I want:

Except it would be dedicated to gauges and I'd have an app to ensure it's voice controlled instead of sticking my hand around/through the steering wheel which seems pretty dangerous..
