Rev Speed Meter

That is an Apexi Rev Speed meter right? I have the new one......you know the blue one with the G sensor. I have a 1994 Sentra 1.6 Liter. I havent installed it yet its sitting in my room. Was it hard to install yours? I hear you have to tap into the ECU. If you could give me any pointers or info on how to go about making such an installation it would be so greatly appreciated. By the way your setup looks cool keep it up!

Nope, thats and apexi mulit-checker:
air/fuel ratio
MAF flow
Injector duty cycle
Speed(removes limiter as well)
Tach
Timing
alarm settable for RPM,inj,MAF
Cant remeber it all

As for install.. kind of a pain to get to the wires at the ecu cuz they are tightly packed. Ill take some pics of my temporary setup for ya..

Yes it removes the limiter, and no it wasnt that bad to install. Here are a few pics of my temporary tap-ins at the ECU:

I think there is about 10 tap-ins. There are a lot of other extra wires in the pic that are not part of the multi-checker. Tach signal, fog light stuff and some others. My plans are to solder in the multi-checker harness and put the cover back on the ECU.

Thrillseeker197 - I think I got it for about $130 shipped.(Used)

1997 GA16DE - Napa, they crimp onto the wire, then you insert a male spade connector.

Sentra GTR-1 - To the best of my knowlage it is no longer availavable. I listed the funtions above.

Sentra GTR-1,
Side effects.. Well because those tap-ins are kinda ghetto and not reliable, if you move the wire just right the car stalls and throws a camshaft code(good thing i work at a shop with scan-tool acces). It has never stalled while driving though. Soon it will be all soldered and cleaned up.

In reference to Pat Scott's triple pod set up - it looks good and clean. I dont think its a smart idea to use the air vents for that in Miami where I live. You need all the air vents open and clear because is soooooo hot.

2 reasons that I never thought twice about getting rid of the vents.
1. I dont have AC
2. I hate the heater blowing in my face, I always use the floor/windshield setting.
