Default Plx

Added 2 PLX DM-6 gauges with a fist full of sensor modules today.

- Wide band (with passthrough to left TGV sensor for easier logging)
- Boost
- Oil Temp (from pan)
- Oil Pressure (reading from oem port, with pass through to oem oil pressure)
- IAT (currently just a probe in the front of the IM)

Finding a decent spot for all of the sensor modules together ended up being more annoying than I expected. I ended up stuffing them under the dash tied to the steering column. A bit more of a rats nest than I wanted, but it'll do for now:

I'll probably end up relocating the sensor modules somewhere cleaner / easier to get to eventually. I'm more than a little tempted to eventually ditch the pretty little aluminum housings and fab up something to hold all of them together in a smaller space. Probably not any time soon though, more pressing / interesting projects to work on currently.

Side note, in the process of trying to figure out logging options and trying (and failing) to get some of the fancier DM-100 gauges, I had a couple of interactions with PLX support. They were very responsive and friendly enough, but they didn't have any useful answers and didn't really seem overly interested in their automotive products, definitely more focused on their other areas of business.
