Default Anyone use Casper Knock gauge??

Looks like a decent gauge for a good price. It was made go GN guys but it seems like the only thing you have to wire up is one for a ground, power, and one to the knock pin to the ecu. Just looking for anyone tha has ran one and people's opinions
heres a link

On the instructions it says it will work with other cars with a "ESC module"...thats just a ECU right?

Only weird thing i noticed was that you must tap the power source to a wire that does NOT have power while cranking. I always use the cig lighter/radio wires to install gauges...can i not use them?
