just got the sgi-5 from Dakota Digital installed to make the speedometer work. It was fairly east to install and works perfectly. Got my second tachometer emulator from NOVAK and it did not work either. they are supposed to be sending me another when they get more in...
Well.... lost third in the transmission.... Guess you can't expect too much from a junkyard tranny. Anywho, going to have it rebuilt so it will basically be brand new... Got the new NOVAK tachometer Emulator in, it "works" but I am not happy with it at all!! It has a pretty good delay in it from the time I push the gas to the time the needle moves. Apparently that is normal. Anyone else have one of these things? or have one from another company such as Dakota Digital?
Just went back through my pictures on photobucket, didnt realize i was that far behind on updating them lol. I will take more tomorrow and i also have some videos of it lifting the left front wheel off the ground during the rear end torture test after installing the 8.8. Passed with flying colors by the way and could not be doing better. Anywho, i will upload those videos and new photos by friday.
I am not real sure on a YJ, but that definitely makes sense. On a TJ however, the gauges are electronic and will only accept a jeep signal. What the tach emulator does is takes the GM signal and converts it to Jeep signal.
Its kinda like that, but its not really a gm or jeep or whatever signal, its the waveform and number of pulses.
As long as you can get to the signal wire it should work the same I would think....I'll keep you posted. Im gonna bring in some clusters here to work when I get caught up and see what's going on with them.
