    Thanks to The Zebra for sponsoring today’s video. Click bit.ly/TheZebraMoneyPit to learn everything you ever wanted to know about car insurance.

    Thank you to Optimist Studios www.optimiststudios.com​ for letting us shoot this wicked fun Zebra Ad in their lot! Check em out!

    Thank you to our good friends at EAD Exotics- www.eadexotics.com/ for helping us get out hands on cool cars to do fun stuff with!

    Thanks to DDE-EFI for all the help on the dash!
    dd-efi.com/collections/digita...

    So we opted to go the fancy route and swap our Miata gauge cluster for a supercar-like digital dash! Now the problem is that we can’t read fuel levels or oil pressure! So today we fixed those problems by adding some aftermarket bits to our ECU!


    Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!

    Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

Love the video. It also showed me, there’s no way I’d want to put in an electronic dash. The need for tech support would break me. (And I’m sure the way I do things I’d hit a bump, something would go out and I’ll never find that gremlin). Great video though. Money pit is awesome.

Is it just me or is the design kinda hideous? Can you customize that or not? It would be fine if it didn't look like a 90s skating rink or something... why so many colors and basic ass font choice? It feels like that was designed to be hidden in the glove box or something and not seen up front.

So... I figured this might be the right place to ask for advice. I've got a 1985 f150. And my gauges aren't in the nicest shape anymore and since I'm not going for a factory restoration anyway i thought somethink a little more modern might look cool. I like the new vintage usa gauges, but I'm not in the US so i need a metric speedometer. Does anyone know gauges (aftermarket or from another car that will fit) either metric and imperial or only kmh? I don't know, i might just get some original ones as replacement but i thought maybe someone in this comment section has a good idea

For the display, I think the refresh rate should be increased to at least 60 Hz (my preference would be at least 100 Hz). Also, I much prefer traditional speedometers to GPS-based speedometers. Lower latency, and no need to worry about signal coverage.

Any competent 12V tech will tell you those "Vampire clamps /quick splice connectors" are CRAP. The first bump you hit, or moisture/humidity, all bets are off. You want a foolproof install, solder, dilectric grease and tape, period! I've redone too many aftermarket alarm/remote starter installs with those crappy connectors to count.

Donut should do an electrical video. Basic soldering, schematic reading and proper care and feeding of a multimeter? It seems to be a major tripping point for a lot of motorheads.

You wanna watch a donut channel, talk about donuts, while a guy eats donuts, with a guy doing donuts, eating a donut, on a donut channel, for a donut video, surrounding the guy eating donuts by donuts by another guy eating donuts for the people who film the donut videos for there donut channel? I said this out loud and surprised my self cause i said it in about 2 seconds flat. (Not surprising considering i talk fast as hell.)

The lag issue on the screen is because the CPU is way too slow. In other words, the raspberry pi isn't good enough for that job.

zack you need to close tuner studio on the dash and set the baud rate to 115200 on whatever usb port the megasquirt is hooked up to. you can just search how to do it on google. its a raspberry pi so it should be easy, i have basically the same setup in my car and the dash runs super smooth with the higher baud rate. please do it so the comments about the slow refresh rate of the screen will stop.

I seriously think a Raspberry Pi 4 would make the refresh even better. Judging by the performance of that Rasbian based Linux environment, that looks like a Raspberry Pi Zero. I really think part of that lag, is system lag. Even navigating menus looks sluggish.

You NEED to use a manual gauge while setting a digital sensor - this is your reference for making any slope or offset adjustments to the DAC.

Computers can’t read resistance, they read the voltage drop or voltage divide created between a fixed pull up or pull down resistor in the computer and variable resistor which is your inputs and sensors.
