How to Get the Most Out of Your EFR Speed Sensor

Once you purchase a speed sensor equipped EFR Borg Warner Turbo - you need some method to read out (or record) the speed.

Choice #1: If you have a data aquisition system - you will likely need to buy the TSS below (Turbo Speed Scaler). This converts the frequency output of the EFR Speed sensor to a linear scaled voltage - which is required by most Data Aquistion packages. It is economically priced at 57$ and is a very high performance microprocessor controlled sensor scaler box. Itis also a snap to install and hook up.

Choice #2: If you want to be able to display your Turbo Speed along with Boost and Exhaust or Intercooler temperature - you need the SBT Kit below. It gives you a daylight viewable readout with cool features like a peak and hold - and real time bar graphs. It is fieldupdateable and has a host of features that you can check out on its product page. It is more expensive at $387 - but it looks cool and performs great! You can actually use the TSS in addition to the SBT - as you may want to log data to your data aquistion system - and have a great looking dash mount gauge in addition.
