    Default Distributor Compatibility Holden V8

    Hi. I'm looking at setting up the Terminator with transmission control on an Australian 308 Holden engine. I was wondering if the distributor I have attached will possibly work with the Dominator ECU, as there doesn't seem to be a Dual Sync to suit Holden engines. It seems to have the same configuration as the Dual Sync, but was wondering if the outputs need a minimum & maximum voltage, and if as stated in the notes, the Dominator has pull-up resistors on the signal inputs.
    Suggest wiring would be:
    A Crank Signal Green
    B Cam Signal Blue
    C Signal Ground Black
    E Switched +12V Red

    Any help would be appreciated. KevD

    Custom Hall-Effect sensors and/or shielded harnesses:
    1) The ECU already has the pull-up resistor for sinking output (open collector) sensors inside, so don't add anything.
    2) The ECU already has the shield (drain) wire connection/pin grounded inside, so don't ground it at the sensor end.
    Think of the shield wire as an antenna pointing to the sensor; it's only supposed to be grounded at the ECU end.

    The Hall-Effect crank & cam sensors are wired as shown in the Holley EFI Wiring Manual:

    Hi KevD. I'd be interested to here about your setup.
    Holden V8 with transmission control? So VS or early VT? Gary
    P.S. Thanks to Danny for his input for your distributor.
    Regards, Gary

    Thanks for the quick reply Danny. I've checked the attachments and the VT distributor looks to be the same as the Dual Sync. Not sure it has a shield wire to attach, but it seems it will work If connected as below.
    A Crank Signal Green
    B Cam Signal Blue
    C Signal Ground Black
    E Switched +12V Red

    Hi Gary. Block is VT roller and Transmission is 4L60E out of a VS going into a Hatchback Torana. Looks like the Terminator will do everything I need for the conversion and more. KevD

    Hi Kev. I built a VT roller block 355 with the works ($30K engine) for a good mate of mine, a $7K 4L60 fitted in a VB Commodore. Goes really hard, but he doesn't like me driving it. I drive too hard, LOL. Sounds like yours should go really well. Gary
    Regards, Gary
