The 7” 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 C127 we are able to relay a message in text across the bottom of the screen indicating what is triggering the fault.
The C127 also features 16 full color LEDs integrated into the unit for use as shift points, warning lights, or other driver alerts. The color, function, and intensity of each LED is programmable, allowing users to develop their own unique strategies and sequences. Some of the uses in our base configuration on the R35 are turn indicators, high beam indicator, check engine light, cruise indicator, burnout indicator, etc.
Our Street Version PNP kit includes a PNP wiring adaptor that allows for a 100% PNP installation of the Motec C127 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 C127 calibration, allows full OE cluster removal. Paired with the Forged Performance billet C127 mount, this makes a full cluster swap a 100% PNP install.
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 C127 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 Forged Performance. The mount puts the C127 in the perfect location and makes it a simple bolt in affair with the stock dash.
Installation of the complete kit is about a three hour job for a first time installer.
The complete kit includes the MoTeC C127 dash, PNP Wire Harness, Forged Performance billet C127 mount, and a T1 base dash calibration.
