Inline 12v reader/display

Recommended Posts

Looking for something I can mount in the cab that will read the signal (0-12v) and display.

Something very cheap and small to hook directly into a variable voltage feed ????

kinda like this ...... in functionality

But digital and smaller

May I ask why and how about a pain old volt gauge??:shrug:

yeah probably should of said .......... my methanol injection is based on boost ...... it provides a Voltage Resistance between 0-12v ..... with 12V being full spray. So this would show me both a) When its ON b) How much I am spraying based on my voltage signal Help in tuning the spray conditions/nozzles sizes :) Boost gauge alone is not enough - as the dial in gauges on the VC100 controller are not accurate enough to be sure whats happening at the pump end ...... I think the Stage 3 kit solves this with 2x spray maps ........ and a digital contoller ..... but its a $500 upgrade :thumb1:

I gotcha man, I was just wondering.:thumb1:How do you like your water/meth and do you have studs for it? I'm thinking about getting one to help cool things off b/c I've got my fuel than air and my EGTs get a little high!:evilgrin:

I like it. Hardest part is controlling quench and still getting EGT reduction. Hence the 12v display. Personally I'd stay the hell away from devilsown. Snows a bit more expensive but the customer service is workable. If I was doing it again I would go http://www.labontemotorsports.com/store/ccp0-prodshow/DIS_S4.html That looks like it gives you the control this system requires. The price will go with t. Yeah with 150 sticks ..... and tapped I could see that being an issue. There was a guy selling a 64/75/14 on CF for like $1100. Not sure what you could get for the hybrid. Did also see a s300 for $800 secondhand on there - thats a 57/65/12 but can be built up later to a 62/65/12 for $400. At the moment I am seriously looking at a holset hybrid build. Basically $550-650 to convert your HX35 from HTT turbo to a 60/60/12. Not sure on studs. Its a concern ....... some guys say no studs till over 500HP (even with methanol) and some guys say running over 55PSI often then start to think about it. [some guys say less obviously also]. I am closer to 400HP and 38PSI ........ so not planning at this stage ............even with a new turbo I will wastegate at around 40psi :thumb1:

I gotcha, well I figured even with a larger turbo, some water/meth would be handy for some extra go!! And right now I can't afford anything either way but I would like to have it!! As far as studs go, some guys say that the added cylinder psi of the injection could blow a headgasket. Most say that is doubtful though, just possible. And 45 psi is suppose to be the limit on the factory bolts.:shrug::thumb1: As far as systems, thanks for the advice. I was kinda wondering which one was better, kinda thought about Devils Own simply for the name (kind of neat sounding) but I think I will go with Snow when I get around to buying something. I never knew it required so much tuning to get it to work right... That's kinda a bummer... As for the hybrid, why not go with the one from Jacob?:shrug:
