    Autometer shift light & controller

    Anyone have any input as to how the autometer quick-lite shift light along with the DPSS controller works? can't really find any reviews on it. Also can I just use the controller and wire some LEDs to it and make my own shift light?

    Bump.

    RichD514 did you install this shift light?

    Anyone with a 15+ WRX put a shift light in yet?

    I just noticed the Cobb APs have a 'shift light' display option! Anyone actually use this?

    I'm not sure anyone actually needs a shift light in general..

    I just go until I hear it bouncing off the limiter then change gears.

    I agree to the formal definition of "need."
    However, I have occasion every now and then, to REALLY wish I had one. Like Heads Up Displays (HUDs) they are not necessary, but in certain circumstances are invaluable for not having to move your eyes down to the instrument panel.
    Short of trading my WRX for an STI or using an AP, I think I found a shift light for the 15+ WRXs: SSTMAX (CAN-Bus)

    The problem with the ap is you can't mount it in a good place where any dim screen flash is going to be useful.

    The Torque Pro android app has a plugin called shift light. You can set the RPM for the shifts. Just need a bluetooth OBDII connector. They're fairly cheap. I used it in my old Nismo and it worked very well. You can even place your device on the dash and it will "project" onto the windshield. Not a true HUD, but not too bad if you use the right colors.

    Plus, if you don't have an AP, the torque app lets you monitor some of the car's systems just like separate gauges (AFR, Voltage, etc.)
