    Did you ever get an answer? I'm getting ready to install a Banks iDash and was wondering the same thing. Can I just run all 4 wires to the wires on the Pro Flo harness or do I need to run power and ground separately?

    *edit*
    I hooked up all 4 wires to the Pro Flo harness with no issues, the gauge powers on/off with the ECU flawlessly.

    I see reference a "db9" connector for the can bus, but mine is different. The first picture is what comes up in a search for db9 and the second image is what I have. What connector do I need for the Banks iDash?

    I planing also to use the CAN from PROFLO4. I will shut of the TCC when the throttle goes to zero to avoid the torque bang from +torque to -torque. I am very interested for a sketch for Aduino and MCP 2515 to reading the CAN Information. Until yet I have not found an example in the www for the PROFLO4.

    That's the route I took. Arduino, CanBus Shield, and Touchscreen. My dash worked out WAY better than expected and has all of the data I need. It also logs to an SD card when needed. I will post pics once I finish the mounting in the dash.
    I'd love to see your setup, especially for the data logging. If I PM you my email, maybe you can send me some details and I can get a look at what you're using.

    An issue with my .xml file for RealDash as it contained an obvious error that has now been corrected, however still not tested with the PF4 ECU.

    I hope someone gets the chance to test it out soon as the developer wants to integrate the PF4 into RealDash which would make it slightly easier to get set up. I updated the link in my post above.

    I've also been going down the arduino-CAN shield path for other non PF4 inputs (twin motor boat), but also looking at other alternatives, dashbox and Y-dash, mostly because of their support already in Realdash, but the OneGuage path looks very promising.

    Should be an interesting dash, a center 12.3 or 14 x-wide curved LCD and 3.5 displays left and right with the PF4 stats.

    I need to get to work...

    I won't be getting my PF4 until late February

    Davedog,

    That is really nice! I did the same/similar thing to build a "stock appearance" gauge that then displays the PF4 CanBus data with a touchscreen. RealDash is probably too much for this, because I am using the stock gauges in my Ford Truck for the basics. Take a look at this site, theonegauge.com . The owner, Michael, has all the PF4 configurations and knows exactly how to customize any installation you want. He is adding a GPS to my gauge, just so I have more data (time, speed, elevation, etc).

    Good luck in Feb!!

    The data stream uses 11 bit addresses, has a bus speed of 1 Mbit/sec and all channels are
    sent as Big Endian at 200hz

    Anyone know what speed the canbus uses?

    I'm working on connecting the ProFlow4 ECU via Canbus to a dash app called Realdash, but I don't have a ProFlow yet. I downloaded the can bus protocol files for the PF4, and have made an xml file for Realdash but I'm getting hung up on the addressing scheme, shouldn't there be more than just address 0x300-303? I'm missing some understanding in the CAN ID/serial number portion of the file.

    Could someone give me their ECU serial number so I can try to figure this out?

    or maybe Edelbrock would send me a demo unit so I could get this figures out.

    or maybe I'm being lazy and just need to do some more research.

    Anyway, I feel it helps the community here to have more CAN product support options

    Realdash allows you to make custom dashboards that will run on Android, iOS, and Win10 devices with connectivity to ECUs and other devices via CAN or Bluetooth

    I know it will log it as well if you get the datamonster, but are there more metrics logged or just the same as we can see on the E4 app?
