The 12” ultra bright screen is vibrant and anti-reflective, making it easy to view in direct sunlight. Numerous selectable layouts are supplied with configurable channels, labels, and color schemes.
With a Motec ECU, we’re able to display many things that the driver couldn’t see without a laptop. Fuel pressure, lambda, coolant pressure, any additional non OE sensors, lap times, etc. There are literally hundreds of channels you can display for the driver. With three complete screens, and scrollable bottom lines, you can put a ton of information at the driver’s fingertips. With a stock ECU you’re very limited in comparison, but all of the normal channels you need to make a functional instrument cluster are available.
Another huge advantage (with a MoteC) is the ability to display messages for diagnostics, instead of just a check engine light coming on. With a check engine light the driver has no actual indicator of what the problem is. On the C1212 we are able to relay a message in text across the bottom of the screen indicating what is triggering the fault.
Our Street Version PNP kit includes a PNP wiring adaptor that allows for a 100% PNP installation of the Motec C1212 color display, and allows removal of the OE instrument cluster. The OE cluster can not be removed otherwise, as it’s relaying a lot of CAN communication to other modules in the car. This harness, along with our C1212 calibration, allows full OE cluster removal. Paired with the GT Auto billet C1212 mount.
This install brings in many channels over CAN, and also the necessary wired inputs for full street functionality like parking brake switch, seat belt warning inputs, fuel level, etc.
The C1212 inputs that are unused are terminated to a connector labeled ‘spare’ for future expansion should you want to add any sensors or video input (can set it up to display a reverse camera on the screen in reverse).
The PNP harness also allows for connection to the CAN bus of your ECU, if you’re using an aftermarket ECU. Our base calibration is setup around a Motec M1 ECU, but this kit can also work with a Syvecs or a stock ecu, with configuration changes. The PNP harness also includes a composite video input, which could be used for a rear vision camera, or a slingshot cam. Included with the kit is a black anodized CNC dash mount from GT Auto. The mount puts the C1212 in the perfect location and makes it an almost bolt-in affair.
The C1212 is a hair too wide to fit without dash modifications. Once installed, you can’t see the modifications required, and we can supply detailed pictures of what’s required, but it is NOT 100% PNP in that regard. *This has not been tested for fitment on the 2017+ dash*
Installation of the complete kit is about a 5 hour job for a first time installer, a couple hours being the dash modifications.
The complete kit includes the MoTeC C1212 dash with the Input/Output option, the GT1R PNP Wire Harness – Street Version, GT Auto CNC mount, and a T1 base dash calibration.
