CalSelct Display on Tacho (for old pulsed tacho cars)

Post by amdisthebest »

Like all the modern kits do with CAN bus, it would be awesome if all the old cars out there with a pulsed tacho could get calSelect displayed temporarily on the tach like the new kits.

Is the number on a rotary switch too hard to see ?

And how would you propose that worked on your tacho whilst driving ?

I don't have a rotary switch. I use factory toggle buttons in a stalk, repurposed for map selection.

The tach would temporarily display the selected map as the maps are being changed then after a short pause, return to displaying engine speed, just like a Syvecs CAN based system...

Ahh right, you said this was for an old car.

Conventional rotary switch is a lot more practical. Especially if you ever wish to make changes on the move and be sure where you change to.

There's lots of other ways I could do it, but I prefer my OEM integration and would love a display.
