    you already have a tach. It's your choice of whether or not you want to use the 5 in. tach but I would say go with a pillar gauge pod or a pod that replaces your clock.

    HJey if u want a Tach go for it, but a huge 5inch tach just wouldnt look right if u ask me. Get ur self a Nice set of Prosport gauges or something.

    Gaguge Cluster is there for a reason man

    Definitely do the five inch tach! Then douse your car in race fuel and light a match.

    It's not going on a Mustang...that's what's wrong with a 5 inch tach.

    You have a tach in the car and it's very easy for most people to read. Get a good gauge setup so you can monitor boost, oil temp, and your choice of a 3rd item.

    If you put in the 5" tach please make sure to buy the 7" speedometer that reads too 200mph, just in case.


    Lemme ask you this.....Why would you buy a $36000 car and then scab on a $60 part? I'm assuming the worst on this that you are planning on drilling holes to mount that monstrosity?

    Its not a 67 Camaro, it doesnt need a tach.

    If you must add gauges, make it a boost, pyrometer, and wideband o2. They will at least be useful.
