It's currently 6v positive earth, running a generator, but I've decided to swap in the slant-6 so I need to go to a more conventional 12v negative earth anyway.

1954 Plymouth Savoy Coupe

New project time! It might be a while before it's ready for Megajolt, but I'll go as fast as I can. http://i685.photobucket.com/albums/vv218/Broke4speed/2011-07-19142910.jpg It's a 1954 Plymouth Savoy, running an inline flathead 6 putting out 110hp/190tq (well, I'm sure it did in 1954, lol). I am go...

So, the megajolt has been pulled from my Rabbit. For that matter, so have the carbs :(. I'll be putting it up for sale shortly, I've started down the road on a radically different project...to which I'll start a thread about soon. It's MUCH different than what I'm used to, and I don't think there's ...

Ah ok, gotcha. I'm too excited, I keep forgetting this is all beta testing stuff, lol. I couldn't find the app settings in the menus, so I assumed it would just interpret it automatically.
The mid-screen swiping is working now I noticed, very cool :D.

I like the two-finger zoom function on the datalog page, very cool. The tuning page is pretty easy to work with, very intuitive. Select, long press, adjust, done. I did notice that if I was on the tuning page, and I switched the orientation of the phone, it would return to the gauge/realtime viewing...

It's been a looooooooooong winter, but it's almost time to get the car out again. I was going stir-crazy, so this is much welcome news. I went out to fire it up, and had a hell of a time trying to get it to run. The battery was just dead enough that it would drain on the first few cranks, and all th...

This is the reason I got a Samsung Galaxy :D.
Keep up the good work Brent, I can't wait for this to hit the 'shelves'. Even if I've got to update my V4, I'll be implementing this :D.

VERY EXCITED!

Nah, a general idea of the RPMs is all that's required. The hard cut limiter will let me know when I'm too far gone, haha. It's a fun toy car, not an ultra accurate racer.

Thanks again for the help, I owe you a beverage of choice, although postage might be difficult ;).

It WORKS! ...well, actually, I tested the stock unmodded tach as well, and it also works with the MJLJr tach-out, lol. The modded one responds a bit faster though, although both seem to be out ~300 rpm at idle, and ~100-200 at 3000 rpm. I'm thinking it's not the most accurate tach to begin with, sin...

I'm reading shoptalk right now, lol. I really need to get that turbomania book, and I'm sure I've got the specs for those tapered tubes around here somewhere. Might be time to experiment :D.

I love it :D.

I'm very close to converting my car to draw-through and would love to know what e-tubes you're using. I've got a set of non-emissions Dells crying out for boost :D.

It's fairly mild here today, I might give the modded tach (and stock) a try. I'll leave the current wiring the way it is and run the tach signal to the cluster, vs. using the stock in-bay wire. This will take the whole 'car no starty' thing out of the picture, lol. I'm positive I could track that ba...

Mod went super easy, I'm getting the hang of this soldering thing, lol. I'd be lost without my vacuum tool though. Used the long end of a resistor as the jumper, and removed the capacitor completely. The printed circuitboard is pretty rough, but continuity is still there between the tach standoff an...

There's one other thing... Since my original tach picked up off the positive of the coil (IIRC), it is constantly fed a 12v signal. When I pull the tach wire off the coil, the car dies. Since the MJLJ went in, I've just had this connected to a +12v source. The fuel pump relay is connected to this wi...
