Re: Foam deadening

I m close to buy the same product for both the sills ( 2 or 3mm) and under the carpet (10mm) from my S3 FHC. I found several suppliers here in France. You should be able to find the same kind in UK.

S3 Rev counter

Hi,
I've an XJS engine with the Marelli ignition.
The signal coming from one of the amplifier goes through a 6.8Kohm to the XJS counter.
Can I plug directly this signal without any resistor to the input from the S3 Rev counter ?
Thanks for your return
