More odds and ends getting done on the car. Nothing too exciting but since I like to take pictures of everything, here it goes!
Autometer Pro Shiftlight. Yeah they are a bit ricer, but i've always been a fan of shift lights. Not having to keep a close eye on the tach has always been a big plus whether it be racing in autocross, rallycross, or eventually on stage where taking your eyes off the road for a second is sketchy. This guy will just give me a quick heads up before i bounce off the rev-limiter. I still need to get the right RPM pill, as this one is from another car and is way past the redline of the RS. So this was the install.
Extend the wires to reach the ECU, a good ground, and a power source.
Drill holes on the top of the steering column cover to mount the light and allow the wires to pass through.
Tap into the RPM signal wire off the ECU.
Good spot for a ground (behind where the stereo usually is)
There's lots of potential power sources to use, i took the easy route and used an add a fuse on the radio spot (since i don't have a radio). :-(
As you can see, the position of the shift light does not block my view of water temp, or the tach... only partially on the lower end of the speedometer.
