    i am mounting my boost gauge on the steering column but i still have to put my water temp gauge somewhere along with the A/F wideband. i was thinkin the one with the 2 pods added to the cluster.

    the thing is, i want somthing different that you don't see often and is still in a visible place. i like when there are in the consol area but i dont have an open space cuz i still have the stock stereo equipment. i may have to customize somthing similar to the one that replaces the clock.


    post up those pics, especially if you have them in a unique place!

    why do people deminish the mustang by putting the 5 inch tachs..... good thing they passed a law here in VA that any aftermarket gauge mounted on your dash is illegal. now gauge pillars and the ones where the clock are i like, but the huge tach.... no, not in a mustang

    Why do people put white wheel on a Mustang, it looks ricer to me. Well I guess you like them on your car and I like my "big" tach so its what you like not what other people think about it. My factory tach is about 600 rpms off also, so I wanted a more accurate tach.

    you do know you can fix that problem for less it would cost to buy that tach....
    where did the white wheels thing come from? just makin an example? cuz i dont have white wheels.
    i could understand for a drag car or something cuz its higher up but for a street car... not

    The car in your sig looks like it has white wheels. I don't want to offend anyone, sorry, I am just having a bad day because people have been talking shit about me. I personally like the looks of a big tach and I know some people don't. My car is more of a weekend warrior now.

    but they wont pull you over for it as much as they will a 5in tach on your dash. from what i was aware it was ANYTHING MOUNTED ON YOUR DASH THAT CAUSES THE VISION OF THE DRIVER TO BE OBSTRUCTIVE. from i was aware the pillars will still legal
