Default Anyone using the Banks iDash in their Subaru?

Anyone using the Banks iDash in their Subaru? I'm looking for a replacement for my PLX gauges since they're starting to crap out on me. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

I do. I have it in my diesel jeep. It's great. However it plugs into the obd port. So if you have a Cobb AP, you won't be able to use both at the same time. My advice buy some defi gauges and stick with the AP if you have one.

Thanks for the info. The PLX gauges I have now also plug into the OBD port also. I dont like to use the accessport because i dont care for the look. I prefer to have it in my gauge pod. I always feel like if i leave the accessport out, someones gonna smash the window and take it. I was hoping to find out what can be read on the Banks gauge on subarus specifically. AFR, EGT, Boost/VAC, etc. The plx gauges I have deliberately disabled reading AFR and boost so they could sell you sensors. I know it says on the Banks site that it can read everything, but not all vehicles will have all the sensors available to read over obdii.

The big one I was looking for was oil pressure. It doesn't show that. No afr either. It won't show egt unless you have the sensor hooked up. Egt is built into my ECU, so it works for me. Diesel is where banks really shines. Gas engines not so much. Personally I'd skip it. Get an aem wideband, defi boost and defi oil pressure. Call it a day. The racer series can be found everywhere for pretty cheap.

My banks idash is set up to show the pedal monster level, derringer level, engine coolant temp, dpf regen countdown and boost.
