Sage...the dash piece comes out pretty easy - pulling it out from the top first. It takes about 20 minutes to trim away at the opening to fit the scan gauge in. The top and sides get cut away.
Here is the link to install; http://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/scang...ll-191151.html

We like ours too; mostly monitor mpg and hp. We mounted it between bottom of dash and top of engine cover with velpro strips

If I do it, I'd like to buy an extra dash storage/coin holder and cut that up first. Went online and found Ford part 13546 that fills to opening, but these have switches for lights and brake controller. They were cheap, like $18+ so the plain one, if I can find it would be $10-$15 maybe. Worth a try for that little cost. Will check with my huge Ford dealer tomorrow.

.Mounted mine with the mount bracket . It just fits top and bottom of cubby. I cut and removed about 3/8 " from top and bottom of tape backing and put it on the left edge of the cubby where it is easy to reach the menu button. It always reads 1mpg high on MPG. I monitor instantaneous mpg, mpg, ambient temp, % engine load and mph.

The little number are instantaneous gallons/hr, Distance to empty Miles, tank level in gallons and time to empty.

I have found to to be pretty accurate on gas mileage. The scan gauge is completely flexible with about 50 different items your can display on 7 different pages.

I'm a geek and love it.

I bought a Scan gauge 11 but found that It would not hold on the page I wanted to monitor and after a short time it would return to home page and not give me any info. I would have to keep scrolling through 3 or 4 layers of menus to get a 15sec or so view then back to home page.
Bought the Ultra gauge and am as happy as a clam at high tide as it will hold page and you pick which parameters to view in what order and delete pages not needed. then manually scan custom pages with one button. Have the option of auto scroll with custom timing on page delay for auto scroll . .

I put ours atop the mirror.




The cable wasn't long enough so I bought an RJ 45 coupler and used a short piece of Cat 5 network cable to extend it.






The cable tucked easily into the headliner and the A-pillar trim piece came off easily so the cable and coupler could be placed inside. It was no problem to route the cable along the bottom of the dash to plug into the OBDII port.
