Below you will find quite a few of the things we come across once in a while.
Make sure to check out our tech Videos pages to see even more great info in installing instruments:
GM Drac Module
Previous to programmable speedometers the drac module was in place in many GM vehicles. Some of these modules are capable of reusing the speed signal that went to the factory speedometer. This signal Can be used on your NVU speedo, drive a mile will give the most accurate reading On the speedo.
Integration with Holley Dominator, Sniper
NVU instruments are capable of using the speedo and tach signals from theses systems. The newest Dominator X MAX only outputs a PWM signal which is not compatible with NVU Instruments. There may be a pwm to analog converter on the market to make use of this signal.
Speedo and Tach signals are available on most systems. These systems are very programmable And may be capable of being more plug and play with our kits with some more research on the sending unit signals offered via the program.
1ST Gen LT1 Speedo Signal (VSS)
This requires a 1k resistor to 12 and wired up off the signal wire similar to the way an LS. This will pull that open collector signal over to a hall effect and get things working. The tach signal Is good right off the computer on these.
Top White 10 pin
G is DK GRN/WHT and is vehicle speed signal.
Voltage changing rapidly
Check vehicle grounds as one missing or loose ground can cause the digital voltmeter to react instantly. This is not a gauge issue but one where ground Is not correctly connected allowing voltage to leak. • A good set of grounds is the most important thing a vehicle can. No matter if it’s carburetored or and LS crate engine.
Ford PSOM module
The Ford psom was installed on late ‘80s and 90s models of the Ford trucks/vans. This module is important to the vehicles function as it communicates between the ABS sensor and the four-wheel drive to the speedometer which acts as the brain of the operation. • Good news we can reuse the speed signal that was going to the original gauge cluster, simply follow the diagram and drive a measured mile calibration and you will be set.
MUSTANG 64-66 REPRODUCTION BEZEL
Uses 4 of the OEM fastening points
Bend the lower tabs inside the dash opening about 45 degrees toward the driver to secure the two screws.
