    You could get a cobra cluster.

    Agree ^

    Cobra faces look best. Especially when comparing to the options AM has. Just keep in mind the Redline is located higher on the Cobra Clusters, If you pay attention to your gauges it shouldn't be a problem.

    Just run a shift light, you can even hide it in the vents.

    Or just spin the 2v to the new redline. As long as it will turn that high, (head and cam dependent) then go for it. It wont be a problem.

    I have to recommend these from MAC

    I do have some hot spots though, could probably be using different LED's to help it....

    edit, this pic is what it looks like at dusk, has some hot spots, but the picture still exaggerates it. in the dead of night, you see zero hot spots.

    I just did the LED replacement on my factory cluster and to be honest, I'll take that look over any of the reverse glow gauges that AM and ebay sells any day........

    The after photos don't even do it justice, they are now a solid blue in color and are even brighter than they appear in the photos,

    Maybe it's just me, but the orange needles on the black factory gauges are hard to see in the daytime. The white overlay is a lot easier to see not lit daytime, and lit at night.

    Will a cobra cluster work instead of a V6 cluster (that goes to 120 MPH) ? Or will it give the wrong speed ?

    New edges have ecu controlled gauges, and part of the PATS is involved with the gauges. I dont know if they will work without reprogramming.

    Are we talking New Edge? or 94-98? I saw in his other posts he references a 94, so any cluster from 94-98 should work. Just the mismatched redlines for the 4.6 vs 5.0, but correct me if I am wrong.

    Im pretty sure you are right for the sn's but i was directing my statement toward Nirwan's question. I know he has a new edge and I just wanted to throw the new edge info out there. Sorry about the confusion.

    I have the glow gauges from American Muscle. Unfortunately must be adapted here.
