That's a cool solution, I didn't think of going that route.Hi Everyone, I just want to add some more instructions for those of you who are using a digital speed converter. I originally ran the dakota digital between the VSS signal (a18 engine side) and the VSS wire AND BOTH VSS input wire. What do i mean? I ran the dakota digital for ECU and Dash inputs. I ran the dakota digital before the A18 splits way up behind the blower. But I kept getting a check engine light for VSS. The dakota digital was too slow for the ECU input.

Pre install - This solution assumes you are running a 05+ VSS sensor, and an 02-04 rsx harness. You should have already shaved both sides of the clip off your 05 VSS sensor. Removed the plastic insulator and clip inside the VSS plug (harness side). And from the 02-04 harness plug itself, switch BLK/GRD to from location 1 to 3. BLK/YEL power from 2 to 1. and WHT/GRN signal from 3 to 2. 1 2 3 refers to the 3 wires in the 02-04 VSS harness plug, if you were looking at the open side of the plug, with the plastic tab facing up.
Solution - Just run the digital converter for the dash. Find where the A18 split and find the wire that runs to the dash/cluster, leave some space so you can work on the wire, and cut it. You will run your dakota digital here, so it only affects the dash/tachometer. I used output 4 on the Dakota digital converter. The remaining wire should run down on to A18 on your ECU. Now on your Kpro settings, under MISC, under speed sensor, select Counter driven speed sensor (2005-2006 RSX TSX S2000). Again, no digital converter for your ECU VSS input.
I used the Ktuned one, and just cut the split out and wired from the ECU side to the input of the converter, then at the split, I wired that into the corresponding outputs. I left the normal setting in Kpro and the dash works perfectly and no VSS codes.
