      • Well now that I've decided to have the fuel cell made I'm still having difficulty finding a supplier to provide me with a custom fuel level sender/sensor to allow me to retain the factory fuel gauge. SO far I've contacted SSI, Centroid, Fozmula, Gill Sensors.. it's becoming a royal pain. No luck yet, but hopefully I'll hear something promising by tomorrow.

        On a better note I did succesfully purchase a set of Corbeau FX1 pro seats since last time CEG was up and running. Should arrive mid April as they were on back order. Will still need to pick up an FIA approved one to competitively race. I did find a seat I liked, which funny enough is made by Corbeau of UK, but is in no way affiliated with the Corbeau here in the US. However they have the same logo's and everything... crazy.

          • You could probably get someone to design a small circuit to convert whatever signal you get on your aftermarket sender to the same signal the stock gauge is looking for.

              You'd need to go from 10-180Ω to 22.4-147.4Ω. I guess using a 6 point map the converstion would be y=0.7353x+15.047. So I would need a circuit to replicated that.

              • Could easily be done with a basic stamp module. I can help you if you need.

                  Haven't really looked into it to much, but a guy at work was saying something about a pic controller, which I'd need to build a small circuit board to use. I'd be interested to learn more about this stamp module.

                              • Don't plan on having 2 back there! :) My 5yo sits behind Mom and the 2yo sits behind me. HATES riding in Daddy's "fast car" because there is NO leg room for her. Surely not as much as my Sable or the Explorer.
                                Still watching this thread with delight!
