HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

LS1 Tach mod

Post  cfgioja on Thu Sep 09, 2010 1:59 pm

Curious, People have figured out the LT1 tach mod.

Does anyone have a way of modifying a Tach for a LS1/LS6 motor?

Step 1: Strip 944 tach wire
Step 2: Twist wire together with LS computer tach output
Step 3: Cover with electrical tape
Step 4: Drive.

Back on this subject as I will be putting my dash back together. Which wire on the cluster is the tach wire? I have a wire from my PCM that says tach, I just need to hook it to the right wire on the car now.

for the late dash cluster, looks like plug "B" pin 3 GN/BK...is the tach input.

it comes from an 8 pin connector by the original DME (with 3 pins wired/used) pin # 2

at least per the schematics.

probably just a pulsing ‘ground’

surprised nobody with better knowledge has jumped in yet.

I hooked up the wire and my tach works but I wonder about the accuracy of it. At idle like a chopper bike it says it is running a 2k. I doubt that very much But it revs up as I hit the gas and when I put it in first the speedo started kicking up alittle. Since it is still on stands I didnt want to go crazy with it.

Has your computer been monkeyed with? Stock, the computer outputs a 4-cylinder tach signal. If someone has modified the computer, they might have set it to output an 8-cylinder tach signal. That's what happened to xschop...

Glad it's running though!

Thanks for the support too.

John Spears got back with me:

Collin,

1) 202 on, 197 off. (temp for primary fan)

2) Yes, Tach set to 8 cyl output.

3) No cam changes made to your PCM program. No cam specs provided. (figuring out if it needs a tune to match my new cam)

Thanks,

John
Speartech Fuel Injection Systems, Inc.

so when I go to get a dyno and tune run I can reset the tach signal right?

So what is the best way to set up the tach on a 88 951?

Disregard the above ^....I found that the LS1 runs on the 4cyl. tach. signal just took me a minute to find it.

Tach

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:56 am

On my 88 NA I connected the PCM tach output to the green/black wire on pin 2 of the 8 pin connector under the passenger side of the dash. This connector originally went to the Porsche computer.
Porsche Tach works fine.

To confirm this, Page 8 of the 88 turbo wiring schematic shows the same hook up.

Thanks for the info. Although I'm not ready for wiring quite yet, I'm gathering all the info I can.
