Ok.

I am trying to get a 2000 T/A dialed in correctly. I have the tune spot on, but shift points and the speedo are off. Obviously I want to get the speedo sense and accuracy correct before I adjust shift points. The owner of the car installed 3.73 gears and a 3500RPM stall.

This is what is happening.

I am entering the tire size and gear ratio into the calculator.

275/40/17 and gear ratio of 3.73.

The calc wants to give values of:

TOS rev/mile = 2931.52
Pulse/mile of = 117261

The stock numbers are:

TOS rev/mile = 2615.3906
Pulse/mile of = 104612

The cars speedo shows 61 MPH and both my dyno and GPS says 54 MPH.

If I try to manually enter a number higher than 107239 it reverts back to 107239. It will accept the 2931.52 TOS value, but not the Pulse/mile speedo correction.

When I apply the numbers generated by the speedo calculator it holds the 107239 value and allows the TOS value.

The EFI-Live version of my V2 is V7.4.2 Build 622

Obviously the lower the Pulse/Mile value the faster the speedo will read over actual so how do I compensate without throwing the shaft revs per mile off?

Thanks much!

2. I noticed a similar issue with this in my v.7.3.2 as well (still running flashscan v.1).

My '02 f-body (OS 12212156) had a max of 253436 VSS pulses/min. However, my friend's '00 f-body (OS 09381344) has a max of only 129759 VSS pulses/min. The problem is, that's not enough to cover the 132303 pulses/min his 4.10's need to report the speed accurately. Why is this limited so low when my '02 didn't have this restriction?

Sorry to hijack...

3. Yeah yeah, I know, I have the bastard 98 POS but I just tried your numbers

I entered

275 40 17
Clicked on recalculate

Entered final drive ratio of 3.73

TOS ia 2931.52 P/M = 49836

Clicked on "apply", "close"

Now I show
VSS 49835.9
TOS 2931.5242

When I do my setup 275 30 19 3.73 I get:
VSS = 50159.1
TOS = 2950.5366

Are we doing the same steps or is it the OS with a bug? My speedo is spot on for my setup. I'm running V2 V7.4

4. I spoke with the kind folks at RedLine (Thank you Howard) and we tried entering the same numbers you said at 49835.9 (49836) and the same TOS. The speedo went to 60 or 70 MPH (I don't remember now) and the dyno showed 25MPH actual.

With the numbers the speedo calc is trying to generate for Pulse/mile and calculating actual MPH compared to displayed...the percentage is correct to send the Pulse/mile up to 117261 to get a proper speedo displayed to actual speed.

5. Make sure you have entered the tire size correctly. Actually it would be better to measure the rolling circumference of the tire (the distance travelled -in inches - in one wheel revolution) and enter that in the circumference field in the speedo calculator.

The limit for H0101 (for 200 TA) is 230396, so ther eshould be no problem entering 117261, see attached screen shot.

6. I believe H0105 or H0106 output drives the speedo (the other is for ABS I think), so you should be able to change one of those to alter the speedo needle without affecting the rest of the speedo calibrations

If you have a PCM pinout, lookup what the PCM pins are linked to:
H0105: J2-Pin 50
H0106: J2-Pin 49
If one of them is outputting to the speedo/cluster then try adjusting that.

7. Looking at mine it says the maximum is 66587 where you have yours highlighted.

I do not know how to take a screenshot to post like you showed sorry.

8. Probably a difference between Auto and manual transmissions. 40 v's 17 teeth on the VSS pickup.

9. Email me your *.tun file to paul@efilive.com
I'll take a close look.

10. I just "measured" the tire circ and with a line wrapped around the tire and then with a tape measure it was 81". The calculator shows 80.62" so I would say that is close enough.

*edit* Paul I just sent you the file.
