HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

    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!

    It has been modified, I will ask John at speartech if that is what he did. Thanks for the info.

    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?

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

    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.
