Didn't ship yet, so Mike will get it late this week now..sorry.

wait, am i missing something here? i thought you couldn't just replace a VR sensor with a hall sensor? the VR reads teeth or holes, the hall reads a magnet. I have built many MS for VWs. Hall is in the dizzy, VR is in the block (or cam, etc)

All the Hall sensors i deal with need a shutter wheel to either expose or shield a magnet, that is, after all "the hall effect" trigger.

I agree with NOT using a VR on a MS though, all the truly reliable ones i have seen used the ford EDIS system with the MS just controlling timing.

didnt mean to interject in your thread, just seemed like there might be some confusion here (or in my head lol)

Yes. Hall effect gear tooth sensors have existed for many years.

Also the cherry, so on so forth.

First off let me start off with I am very happy with my adapters.
I believe that my flex plate isn't 100% centered, mine aligns only with the 8 bolts and does not have the centering sleeve that is typically used in an aw71 setup. I have a twin disc with a button and a getrag.

I had issues with my original vr sensor where it would skip over counting some windows since I put my motor back in.
when I switched to this setup I had the exact same problem.

I believe this problem may be related to my car only but I figured I would post up just in case anyone found them self in the same position of having inconsistent rpm while cranking.

If I am not mistaken the stock sensor used a 1mm gap.

This new sensor is good for a 5mm gap.

Using my best guess with a caliper (couldn't actually fit it in there so I eyeballed it) I got that this sensor is 3.75mm higher then the tip on the stock one would be.

The new hall sensor has no tip on it. That would put the sensor 4.75mm away from the trigger wheel which is really close to the edge of where it works.
Please double check all of this, as I worked more then I measured today.

I took just over 1mm off of the adapter (crapily with an angle grinder) and now everything works.

^ strange, I'll have to look into this tonight. I read the specs that the 5mm is the max gap distance allowed, so anything closer would be acceptable. (until it hits)

Got one of these adapters from Mueller for Walters car, hooked it up and fired right up. The signal is SOOO much better it's insane. Car starts better then it did on LH now.

Can anyone verify if the Kia sensor is a plug and play or will I have to cut the wires and splice them in a different location?

Plug on *most* (I haven't seen one that is the same, but it could be out there) KIA + Hyundai sensors is different, but the sensor itself is physically identical and much less expensive. I used one from a 2007 Sorento with the older 3.8L V6 (the 3.5L is a different engine) on a LH2.4 application, works perfectly. But they appear to have the same issues with the sheathing failing, crank-no-start is a very VERY common problem on those Sorentos.

I do plan on making more of these sometime this week, but for those that do not want to wait or cannot justify the shipping overseas and you have the to resources to make your own, here you go.
