didn't they make a us model? if it's only KPa that you don't know that's easy to get used to.

Kpa is 1000 Pascals. 1 Kpa is also 10 mb. Therefore 100 Kpa is 1000mb or 1 bar. Finally, 100 Kpa is then equal to 14.7 psi. or 1 Kps is 0.147 psi.

Meteorology school rewind.

I'll keep that in mind. but i noticed on my drive with isman, his SBC-ID was reading out in PSI. Im sure I'll get used to it if i cant covert the display. (I'll try to remember that 50Kpa ~ 7PSI ;) )

My reads in PSI. I thought it was somewhere in the settings. I'll have to look tonight.

You just have to talk to it in English and install it on the car with English directions, then it should be fine :crazy: .

My .02 cents for this morning:

1 mbar = .014504 psi which is lb/in- squared

1 pa = .00001 atm

1 Pa = .007528 mmHg68F

1 atm = 1.01325 bar

1 bar = .986923 atm

1 bar = 10197.1621 kgf/m-squared

I had to torque my new Aluminum Ray racing lug nuts and everyting was in Japanese and only thing I saw was 9-12 kgf :crazy:

Thanx guys.. I'll power it up and see if i can toggle thru the directions. Keep in mind I dont have the SBC-iD I have the SBC Spec R (which uses the same dual solenoid) it just more moutning friendly :) as it smaller than a cigarette pack.

It doesnt specify in english where to select the readout. It just has english installation documents. Maybe I'll call Blitz this afternoon if i feel like being on hold for a minute.
