Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com and this is my detailed review and install of the Raxiom Vent Integrated OBD2 Multi-Gauge without Vent Housing, fitting the 2015 and up F-150. So, in this review I'm gonna talk about who this is gonna appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then lastly we're gonna hit the installation. But right off the bat I'm giving this an incredibly easy one out three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and you should have this in your truck in about 45 minutes or less.
So if you're the owner of a 2015 and newer F-150, no matter the engine, and you're looking to add a really cool piece of equipment to your cabinet that's gonna help monitor a ton of vital parameters, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit for your truck. So before we get in the meat and potatoes, the functionality of this gauge should sell, right off the bat, for an EcoBoost owners such as myself, you're gonna have the ability to view your boost on the fly. Not only that, you're gonna have cooling temps, air intake temps, exhaust gas temperature, battery and voltage, you name it, this is gonna be able to do it.
So, on top of some of the parameters that I just mentioned, you're gonna have a ton of extra features here, so let's dive right into it. So, like I had said previously, for EcoBoost owners out there, you're gonna have the ability to actually see what kind of booster truck is producing right on the fly. Now, this is gonna be great if you're gonna be running an aftermarket custom tune. Piggybacking onto that you're also gonna have the ability to record up to 15 seconds of live data here. Now, that's gonna be via your OBD2 and your PCM. Now, that's gonna be great in the event that you're gonna need to do any kind of data logging with your tuner.
So, another great aspect about this, in my opinion, is definitely for the fact that you're gonna have the ability to check clear, as well as store trouble codes via this unit rate here. Now, while most of that old places aren't gonna charge you a normal log just to get a code pulled, this is gonna be great for ease of access if you're gonna be taking a long trip and you don't have the ability to get down to a service station or a dealership. From a diagnostic perspective, not only that you're gonna have the ability to check and clear codes with this as well as monitor a ton of vital parameters, but from a performance perspective, you will have the ability to record 0 to 60 times.
Now, for somebody like myself that may take their truck down a quarter mile track, this is gonna be great to see as if you're gonna be adding performance parts down the line, like for EcoBoost owners to set a down pipes or for Coyote owners instead of long tube headers, you'd be able to see just how much performance you're getting with your auto modifications. So, take a quick look at the pricing here. You should expect to be spending right around the $400 price range for this part, which in my opinion, while it's gonna be a little bit on the steeper side for what you're getting in terms of diagnostics as well as having the ability to monitor the parameters on the fly, you're getting a massive bank for the bulk of these products, all on a complete package that's going to look like it's way out of the factory.
Let's take a look at the installation. Just like I had said in the beginning of the video, this is going to be an incredibly easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and you should have this on your truck in a little bit less than an hour. So, getting down on the brass tanks here guys, you're gonna need to start by pulling your driver side vent housing, which can be done by pulling out and then up. So after to this, you're gonna need disconnect the line at the bottom of the vent housing and then pull the fashion trim by releasing the clips in the sides. You're to then pull the slot assembly and then you're done.
So just to wrap up the installation here guys, this is definitely a huge selling point for me as the ease of install is gonna be enough for me to pull the trigger on this. You're not only gonna have the ability to measure boost for EcoBoost owners but as well as having a ton of parameters that you can monitor on the fly. So just a couple of final thoughts here, I definitely like this option from Raxiom not only based the fact that I can personally measure boost with this piece, but for the fact that you'll have the ability to clear and check engine codes, as well as measuring 0 to 60 times, and last but not least, monitor a huge variety of vital parameters to your truck's performance.
