  The displayed values are different from the standard meter.                             Due to the ECU information received, the displayed values on this product may differ from those of standard or other meters.
  The boost pressure display is different from the standard or other gauge.               This product’s boost meter reads absolute pressure and may differ from a meter using relative pressure.
  With the key in the ON position the boost needles points to a minus reading.            The sensor for absolute pressure is subtracting for barometric pressure and hence the display shows minus.
                                                                                          (EX: Elevation of 700 meters = minus 8Kpa)

  With the key in the ON position, the oil temperature display shows a minus reading.     This is a normal data operation for your car and is not a problem.
