That is strange. I would have to disagree. I DID end up getting a Fortin EVO-CAN and got rid of the DBALL. The EVO-CAN definitely works much better. No special programming that is specific to models of vehicles. It just figures it out by itself.
More importantly though, the EVO-CAN does perform the key-takeover properly on my FAST Key Mitsubishi.
When I get into the car, as soon as I touch the knob on the steering column, it turns off the radio and accessories but the engine stays running. Then, I turn the knob and everything turns on again.
Thats really annoying as I just ordered a DB-ALL after Fortin said it would not work. You would hope they would know their own products DOH
Maybe I will switch over to it if I get it all working.
Was it a fairly simple switch to make?

Yes, switching was fairly simple. The only issue is that the Viper D2D protocol is not compatible with the Fortin. That meant I had to switch everything to wire-to-wire connections between the EVO-CAN and the Viper.

Hi All
Can anyone please help me locate the Tach sense wire? Some site says it is in ECU GREEN / WHITE wire, but when I tested it while on idle, it shows 14 VAC and not fluctuating when pressing on gas, my compustar module also failed to detect tach on that wire. I actually tested all the wires I saw in ECU and was not able to find the Tach sense.
There is a green wire showing 4 VAC but not fluctuating when gas pedal is pressed, but this wire was able to send tach signal to compustar module. I'm just not sure it is the actual tach sense and worried something might break in ECU if I will leave it connected.
thanks in advanced
