Confident and consistent gear changes with a manual transmission are key to protecting your engine from damage and extracting maximum performance every run. The AutoMeter Digital Pro Shift controller is an RPM activated switch measuring 5.125 in. wide, 2.800 in. long, and 0.750 in. high featuring a digital RPM display equipped with the tools you need to change gears at precisely the correct moment. Versatile design is lightweight and easily mounted using double-faced trim adhesive or a dual lock style fastener. This serious piece of hardware is built with the professional in mind and was developed using AutoMeter’s race proven tachometer circuitry for monitoring engine RPM with unparalleled response and accuracy. Digital Pro Shift controllers are compatible with most 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 cylinder engines equipped with conventional or performance ignitions and operating ranges up to 16,000 RPM! Pre-terminated control output supporting up to a 3 amp draw allows for quick and easy connection of compatible AutoMeter Quick Lite, Shift Lite, and Super Lite models. Perfectly suited for use as a single stage control with user programmable set point adjustment by 10 RPM increments, advanced users will appreciate the now standard multiple activation points which allow for unique settings for each gear. Included Launch light function helps drag racers improve their 60 ft. times by nailing their ideal RPM off the starting line. Digital numeric RPM display may be disabled to minimize driver distractions during a run. Peak RPM memory recall provides quick review of the highest RPM achieved since the last clear. For more detailed driver performance analysis, 80 seconds of engine RPM playback recording is now standard. Completely review of your last pass on the digital RPM display or through a connected AutoMeter tachometer to see where you can improve your next run.

Looking to set up an inconspicuous shift light in a stock looking muscle car. Can the 5312 activate a 12 volt light bulb? Also will the system operate with only HEI ignition tach and 12 volt power connections? Are any other connections required.

Asked by: pete67
The 5312 is designed to active one of our many shift lights. If you are looking to use a smaller shift light I would recommend using P/N: 5330. The unit will work with HEI ignition and the unit will also need +12v switched power and a proper ground. For further assistance please give us a call at 866-248-6356.

With the 5312 controller do you have to reset the launch rpm and or shift rpm’s after each pass down the track or does it just go back to the previous settings?

Asked by: MW..
The settings remain in this 5312 until you override them by entering new settings.

I'm lookin at a 5330 shift light for my race car. It has a mechanical tachometer, Mallory hyfire 6 ignition box. My ignition is on switch which turns the 12 volt power off while car is shut down, Will the lack of 12 volts effect programing. Compatible?

Asked by: dennys pennys
Denny, The unit would need 12v in order to be programmed so you will need to supply power to the unit. It is also compatible with your setup.

If I connect the green wire to my MSD digital 6AL and the violet wire to my Autogage AM2300 rev counter (green wire) and the twin lead to the shift light am I correct in thinking everything should work as it should?

Asked by: Corky
Thank you for your question. You will want to connect the green wire to the 6AL box to obtain a signal. The violet wire will need to go to your tachometer to see the said signal if you are not wanting the module to be visible. As for the shift light, the two pin connector will connect to the shift light allowing you to see the set points you saved to the module.

I have a 1995 Toyota st205/GT4 Celica. This version was never allowed in the U.S. my question is will this work with a japan car? I know that I can’t just use a U.S. celica guage cluster because of the 2 countries using different electrical signals.

Asked by: stuntman
This will work as you should be able to obtain a tach signal wire off of the vehicle.

How tall are the digits in the digital display? What steps are needed to get it to show the peak RPM of a run? Will the peak RPM remain on until reset or power is turned off?

Asked by: Hondo 76
Thank you for your question. The height of the digital display is 1/2". The peak reading will remain until you reset it. Here is a link to our instructions which goes over the steps for displaying your peak RPM:

Can this be connected to a Harley Davidson Twin Cam, and an older V-Rod? Would it work better triggered by the tach wire, or from a coil?

Asked by: Pro Street Breakout
Thank you for your inquiry. The 5312 is designed for automotive use. While it can be calibrated to work on most V-Twins, it is not weather resistant, and the V-Twin signal is such that the shift light may not perform well. It is not advised.
