    what does the jdperf VR conditioner do? Let's you use VR sensors if you need a Hall input?

    I need to run VR sensors (AEM v1), and I've been struggling for ages on how to get a better signal. Closed up the air gap, next on the list is shielded wiring. I'm open to suggestions though.

    Correct.
    It conditions the signal from a VR analog waveform to a digital output square wave like a hall sensor would output.
    The crank/cam signal timing and tuning would need to be modified to accommodate this, since they aren't triggered the same way.

    Yeah the digital signal will also help with low RPM signal quality as well, since the VR signal quality can be low at lower rpm's.

    The AEM v1 only allows input of VR signal?
    Seems like it should be able to take in multiple types of cam/crank signals, no?
    I rebuild / upgrade Supra Differentials - PM me for more information.

    In their infinite wisdom, they made the plug and play 87-88 AEM v1 hardwired for VR sensors only. A few years ago I contacted them, and apparently you can modify the board to access the Hall input, but that's beyond my ability. Now whenever I contact them, I get the canned response that they no longer support the product.

    The last info I got: http://aemelectronics.com/?q=forum/e...-v1-compatible

    LOL, wow great support from them.
    Thats pretty pathetic.

    A bit of research and you can figure it out.

    Sounds like you just need to add a 2.2k ohm pull up resistor to run hall sensors.
    Trace the wiring and board to see where it is.

    I'm at the point now that I'll probably just buy a new standalone. The car runs with the AEM, but whenever I go to a bigger turbo I'll probably switch to something more modern.

    After having a V1 crap out on me, I would recommend the new standalone approach. Engine management has come a LONG way in 20 years.

    Yup.

    My plan at the moment is get the car back on the road as is (adding a new 75mm throttle body and linkage setup), and then maybe in the summer get an Ecumaster Classic and the Driftmotion CPS.

    I think the V1 is fine for what it is, the price I paid was fair, and the software is easy to use, but I'd like some of the newer features that modern systems have.
