Yep, that'll be fine.. I was thinking of getting something similar so I can read the ABS ring on the rearend for vehicle speed.

Wow... That hadn't even occurred to me... I ordered this guy for the VR conditioning - https://wtmtronics.com/product/mini-max-a2-signal-conditioner-vr/. It is based on a MAX9926, same as a MAX9924 but dual channel, so I have a spare channel if it ever stops working.

yes, VR sensors easily make 100V AC which will fry it instantly

Pin8 in freqmeasure measures pwm from a 0-5v square wave.

Don't send the vr sensor directly to that pin. You'll need max9924

yes, I think pin 8 is used for freqmeasure...

Progress is always slow on projects!

Making slow progress, but I guess it’s still progress...

Turbo install parts are still being fabricated. The manifold adapter I had purchased put the turbo in a bad spot, it would hit the air filter box. So they designed and fabricated a taller, angled adapter to move the turbo up and toward the engine. The problem with that was that the intake and downpipe tubes were now wrong, so they needed to be redone.

The last few days I updated the 2.2.0 code to work with my CAN BUS library, and added the MAX31855 and the data sends to the LCD. It complies and uploads to the Uno. Working on pulling the data to populate the fourbytes for display. I need to get wiring started to get the actuator powered up and talking to the controller.

Quick question - where do I wire the shaft speed sensor to? I looked through the FreqMeasure lib and I think it said for an Uno board to use Pin 8? I just wanted to be sure.

Yeah as long as the LBB version is 2.2.0 or greater, it'll have the calibrate command in the serial area.

I use a dab of wheel bearing grease. LOL

Yes I agree!! I don’t like the adaptor in the fact the middle gasket is next to impossible to centre when trying to fit the two halves together with the manifold bolted up.

Easy enough, thanks save me 100 bucks from having a shop do it.
