so is v2 up and running now?

David.
Sort of.

Current units are going out with the V2 firmware but not the bootloader so it can't be updated in the future. The V2 was going to have an onboard ABS amp but space didn't permit it so I've got a seperate module available if this is needed.

For all intents and purposes it is a V2 unit though.

Hi Dom, I know this is an old thread but I wanted to ask about my R reg mk3 1.6 sport, it has a 3.0 v6 running c25xe inlet and wiring loom. my speedo is fine but the rev counter is doing the usual reading too high thing, I was told that you did a resistor for a couple of quid that went inline on the green wire to correct it, it this pulse converter thingymabob (which youve spent loads of time and effort on and if I'm honest I read the whole post and only understood half, christ your clever) what I've been told about?
Although do you do a cheaper version that only corrects the rev counter without any of the other features? many thanks Adam.

There has never been and will never be a resistor that you can put inline with the green wire - electronically there is absolutely no way this could work and I've seen people say many many times on forums "all you need is a resistor inline".

My unit samples the pulses coming in, works out their frequency and calculates the output frequency depending on what ratio you have set it up for.

There was a slightly cheaper version in the pipeline which would just correct a V6 signal but due to issues in this thread : http://www.migweb.co.uk/forums/off-topic-discussions/513799-shutting-up-shop.html I won't be building any more units from the end of this week and will be shutting shop to consider an alternative business model.

I'm afraid I've had to stop doing them again now. I've started a new job and gone back to college so I have no time to run my old business as I wouldn't have the time to provide support if something was to go wrong etc.

The Zafira A will probably have the same issues as the MK4 Astra - the temperature gauge has to be fed from the ECU as it uses a totally different signal to a simple sender used by the digidash.

It is possible and there are alternatives (which I haven't used or tested) to the units I used to sell.

I know - it was a hard decision to make but I just have (literally) zero spare time for doing anything at the moment. I've got 1-2 years of full time work and college and weekends now involve copious amounts of homework :(

Wouldn't have a clue I'm afraid. Just about anything was possible with the pulse converters but I stopped making them a while ago.
