Re: Couple install & setup questions

Re: Setting up & Testing VR Primary & Secondary Tach inputs

:) well we have some success so far I think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB4w7YWU0iU When you mentioned putting a cap on the input, I just want to make sure I understood you correctly so for example taking the raw signal coming in from SPRx (or wherever its coming in from) and having it go to th...

Re: Couple install & setup questions

Rod, The 2 six and 5 way plastic terminal blocks finally came in and I'm really glad you guys suggested those :) should work out really nice!!! Is there somewhere that I can actually buy the metal terminals that crimp onto the wire that fit inside these blocks? I wasn't sure what these metal termina...

Re: Setting up & Testing VR Primary & Secondary Tach inputs

Believe me I was wanting to use your dual VR board but the customer I'm putting this together for didn't want to give me any more money towards it so I was kind of stuck putting together the below circuit from the MS2 hardware manual using an LM1815, and now I'm realizing that it's probably not goin...

Re: Setting up & Testing VR Primary & Secondary Tach inputs

That does make sense and I do understand the overall point that it will need to adjusted once on the car. Since the DIY Secondary VR circuit for my cam doesnt have any POTS like the MS VR circuit do you think I'm going to have issues when trying to get things working when on the car and that I shoul...

Setting up & Testing VR Primary & Secondary Tach inputs

Have a couple questions about setting up the stim for testing the VR Primary input on MS2 v3.0 board but also with a DIY secondary VR input that is going to be used for a sequential setup. Some info on the hardware that is being used which is all Ford based senors & wheels. Ford Ranger 36-1 crank wh...

Re: Couple install & setup questions

Finally getting around to assembling the board and starting to installing all the jumpers and had some questions about the resistors used for the board. 1) from Jean's assembly part of the page "(R1 to R8 are 330 Ohm or 1k Ohm resistors depending on the components used in the kit and R9 to R12 are 1...

Re: Couple install & setup questions

Thanks Jean, thats what I was concerned about. I ended up ordering a bunch of different style headers so if the right angled ones I ordered end up fitting fine, I'll just keep moving forward for now with the install and just using the jumpers for initial setup and testing and wait to hear maybe wher...

Re: Couple install & setup questions

Thanks Rod that was I really big help I really appreciate that!!! So as for why you decided to retain the LEDs, I'm assuming your running wasted spark because of the 2 ignition outputs and 2 of your LEDs your using so you can see spark for your 2 ignition banks? Are you using D15 and D16 for ignitio...

Couple install & setup questions

Hey guys, For starters I wanted to ask what you guys typically use for cutting up the MS end plate for mounting the DB15 because I want to try to do it the cleanest way possible and I just moved recently and don't have access to a lot of tools anymore and will need to go out and buy things. I was pl...

Re: Cylinder Pressure & logging

Being this is really only day 2 of my research I'm not giving up yet lol. I refuse to believe that there is not a more affordable option considering that is only one company that I have found/inquired, sure doesn't make things seem to hopeful though :( I started thinking about a separate sensor not ...

Re: Cylinder Pressure & logging

So in reality of functionality Wes are you inferring that, what a normal 36-1 wheel has only 10* of resolution and your comment about 5* even not being enough resolution if Im understanding correctly? If that is the case I guess I wasnt really considering how much data can be lost or not even seen w...
