Hopefully this is the right area for this. I took a Jeg's shift light, removed the provided LED and remote mounted a strip LED into the the stock gauge cluster. After some experimentation with placement I came up with a set up that I liked. The shift light is now integrated into the factory speedo.

Pretty easy stuff. You can get RPM activated switches to trigger relays to do that also. But nice vid.
I had considered it. The last shift light set up I had was blinding at night. This one has a 12v input (from headlights) that will auto dim the LED when activated.

What do you have to do to connect it to the car, and what allows it to detect rpm - how accurate too? Thanks!

There is a tach signal at the ignitor, it's a black wire I believe. Do a quick search you should find what you need. The shift light is fully programmable & can read a number of different signals (LS in my case) in order to be dialed in accordingly.

Okay, Im not good at electrical, what is the igniter, and what is the LS?

Igniter is the ignition amplifier, takes the spark triggers from the ecu and turns up the power and sends it to the appropriate cylinder in the firing order.

An LS is a certain generation of V8 GM engines that has been swapped into everything because it is plentiful, reliable, and, despite being a pushrod engine it is very powerful. Weighs less than a JZ, too.

I don't know that I'll rig it up exactly like this, but it definitely sparked some ideas.

Thanks for the video!

Right on! That's the beauty of this. You can even set it up to turn on your dome light if you wanted. Let me know how you set yours up.
