Great thread guys. I too am very interested in this project.

Here's a little background on me:

I've been an applications developer, mostly .Net and Java, for 7 years. I am also an Open Source advocate. I am very lucky that in my job my boss lets me choose what vendor to use and I usually go with the Open Source ones.

I don't know much about electronics so I think I will have to stay on the software side of things. Maybe I would qualify as a tester for this project. Money is really tight for us until we sell our house so the $50 in parts would be acceptable for the Arduino + LCD.

Let me know if theres anything I can do. I can purchase the board and download the latest version, but I haven't a clue as to how to wire the VSS or the injector monitor. It looks like the language the Aruino uses is not terribly hard to learn.
