Hi guys, I am looking to retrofit a C05 HUD unit (I have the cluster as well) onto a Ford Escort Cosworth and was wondering if anyone could supply me with any technical details about the RPM and speed input signals that the HUD requires? I am using an aftermarket ECU (Autronic SM4) which I believe uses the rs232 protocol. Any help, or technical information would be greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

Hi does the Escort Cosworth have electronic input for the speedo or a cable drive that is directly driven from the gearbox?

The reason I ask is as the Cossie is quite an old car now it's probably cable driven and you will need an electronic pulse to run a HUD

There is an after market HUD system available made by Defi

They do a basic model that does speed and rpm or a high end model that does a similar display the C5 Vettes. They sit on top of the dash. Basic one is about $150 and the high one is $300

I have the basic one for sale cheap if your interested PM me.
