At $75 this is a much cheaper solution that using a tach adapter (~$55), RPM switch (~$50) and shift light (~$40).
yup, i ordered mine last night ... i was just waiting for them to become available!
RBZ, thank you for the heads up! :thumbsup:
I orderd mine a few days ago. I'll be posting pictures of the install and the finished product as soon as possible for those that are interested.
That's Harlans shift light from LS1.com. Hopefully it is him selling it and not someone stealing his design.
You can build it for free too, he posted the schematics on the web a while back. (I think, its been a long time)
He has a TT F-body (Incon kit)
I did some searching and couldn't come up with the schematics. That would be a good cheap mod.:beer:
That is NOT Harlan's shiftlight. It has nothing to do with him. Harlan's light is for 2,4,6,8 cylinder engines only. It does not have a "coil on plug" or "1 cylinder" setting. The only thing similar about it is the size.
I don't know who came first then, but whoever came second obviously borrowed details from the first. They aren't just the same size, its more than that.
It can't be that hard to modify Harlans design to work with a coil on plug design.
It does have a 1-cylinder setting, so I'd say there is a whole hell of alot similar between his and this raptor site.
So I'd say your wrong about the size thing.
I don't know here, but how many ways can you stuff a bunch of LED's in a tube. And a circuit board. And have wires exiting from it? They are all going to look somewhat similiar from the outside.
You are going to have to go way beyond the external appearance before you can say someone is stealing something from someone.
Got Incon, why don't you get them both and give us a detailed analysis of the elctronic aspects of both and then we can decide if someone stole something from someone? Many tachometers and gauges look similiar from the outside. Application is going to be a determinig factor in their shape and design.
Re: Harlan Light
They look totally different. I had a Harlan on my TA. The Harlan was a plastic tube and you had to remove the circuit board from the tube to make any adjustments. This Raptor one looks like a nice step up.
Well, I have the Raptor shift light in my hands now. As far as I can tell without disassembling it, the only similiarity to Harlan's is the exterior color. I got the black case. Raptor's is smaller(3/4" dia. vs. 1"dia.), has more LEDs (7 vs. 5), comes with (2) brackets, and has externally adjustable switches. Not ever having seen Harlan's, I am relying on what was said here and on Harlan's web page.
I should be able to report on the install and performance tomorrow. Depends on how busy I am answering the door for Trick or Treaters tonight.
Here are the pics of the finished install of the Raptor Shift light.
Works like a charm.Everything was wired at or near the PCM.
If anyone needs the wire locations for this one or something similar, let me know.
The light is mounted with double sided foam tape for now, untill I decide if that is where I want it to be permanently.
OK, here's the complete install. I posted it at Raptor's web site.
They would be screaming if I posted it here(too big).
'03 Cobra Shift light install
heres a nice install in a 2001 Cobra:
:-D Raptor / 2001 Cobra
2001 w/ less than 8,000 miles... damn, i'm run'n the hell out of my 2003 ... already 6K!
ok, i got my raptor shift light in and am eager to get it installed -- along w/ everything else in my garage!
maybe i'll have more time this weekend than last :gt:
this whole setup/MOD'n thing is getting as bad as my computers :-D
