Converting tach signal on factory gauge cluster
« on: Feb 18, 2008, 10:44:45 PM »
Does anybody know if it is possible to get the tach to read properly when putting a gauge cluster from a V6 into a 4cylinder? I assume it isn't but I have been surprised before.
If you still have control you aren't going fast enough

I wouldn't think so, since you have 2 extra cylinders firing. maybe if you made a custom circuit board and put it inline... :dunno:

I believe there is a way to adjust this on the gauge itself.  You will need to remove the gauge from the cluster to do it.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE
AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

If it has one coil I don't see why it would differ. Right?

The SGI-8 Tachometer Interface Unit is designed to allow a factory tachometer to function accurately after performing an engine swap to an engine with a different number of cylinders or tach signal. If you are swapping out a V-6 for a V-8 and you need to recalibrate the tach signal from the V-8 to make it read accurately on the factory V-6 tachometer, the SGI-8 will do the job. The SGI-8 is capable of recalibrating tachometer signals for nearly any engine swap combination.
