    I was loking for a new tach today when I was thinking that I really only need to know when to shift not what my rpm is but I know factory tach's aren't too acurate...even though they aren't I barely look at the tach I'm more of a instinctual listen to your exhaust and know when to shift kinda guy but I would like something to remind me to shift to make my runs more consistent..what do ya'll think of a light or a tach or both?

    for my Cobra, I just went with a raptor shift light. I did the install in the ac vent for a nice clean/hidden mounting spot :)

    oooo stealth!
    i'm guessing the raptor shift lights are the size of a white board felt marker?

    the web site shows the install how to on the 96 and up. how about is 94 and 95's? and can i see some pics of in the a/c vent? off and on? thanks. this is beginning to be where i am thinking about putting one. but i was thinking about the autometer. but i like the look of the raptor. how is it changed for the shift settings? is it chip or dial in? thanks guys.

    My vote's for the shift light if you think you need it. I doubt the factory tach in so inaccurate that it would make a difference v/s an aftermarket one. I think cars with a big aftermarket tach on the dash look like crap imo. If you are shifting by ear now I don't think you'll be any more consistant with the light. I shifted by ear in my drag car for years and recently put an electric shifter in, its not any more consistant than it was before. If it was me I'd put my money elsewhere.

    yeah you already have a tach. what's the point of having another one? it's like having two speedometers!? just go with the raptor.

    My AC vent is full with the lights for my line lock, so I installed the Raptor above my tach gauge.
