As you know, BNR's Autocal can display parameters in real-time. Many customers with GM 1.4T vehicles have been asking how to set the Autocal to display the data in a user-friendly way, so you can use it as a digital gauge of sorts.
BNR has listened, and created a custom Autocal configuration that will allow this.
Before proceeding any further, make sure you're using the current EFILive build, which can always be found here- http://www.badnewsracing.net/EFILive/EFILiveV8_Setup.exe and that your Autocal is on the latest firmware.
Download the configuration here- http://www.badnewsracing.net/EFILive/2011-2016%20GM%201.4T.bbx
When it finishes downloading, double click on it. EFILive will open. Plug in your Autocal and click PROGRAM QUICK SETUP
Once this has finished, you can go to the car, plug in the Autocal, and to go DISPLAY DATA. You'll see all the new user-friendly parameters there and can scroll through them!
