Issues on R53 with stock Tach

Recommended Posts

I have noticed on a couple MINI's that I have tuned including my own the tach is accurate at the lower RPM's but when it gets to about 3500+ it start to get inaccurate. This has shown with the use of LC and the motor rev limiter. I have my LC set at 5000rpm the ViPEC reads 4900 to 5050rpm or so while on the 2-step with the computer hooked to it, but the tach is only reading 4K. Then the final rev limiter the tach says that im at 7000ish but I'm tagging the limiter at 8200, the ViPEC is also stating the same, that I am really at 8100-8200.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

No. its wrong no matter what. Its wrong even if the LC is off or hasn't been used since the car has been started. The main rev limiter is still kicking in at 8200, showing this on the laptop, but the gauge itself is showing a tad over 7K
