Postby ColinOpseth » Sun Feb 10, 2008 12:39 pm

Here's an image demonstrating how to convert your 4-cylinder tach to v8. Thanks djv8ga for the image.

'72 Vega with '93 Camaro LT1/M29 T56/12 bolt 3.31. 16" IROCs all around. Sanderson headers into duals with an H-pipe and Flowmasters. It's loud but at least it's faster than your grandma's Buick. pwned.

Is that just for the Vega? Didn't the cars that came with optional 6 and 8 cylinder engines have something on the back to switch? Similar to the jumper on a hard drive.

Thanks for posting this; I have an old, yellowed, hard to read photocopy of it from "back in the day" that another Vega enthusiast gave me 20+ years ago. Now I can modify the 4cyl. tach instead of using one of the v8 Monza ones that I have with the ridiculously low redline!
