I don't have one in fiero but I had the digital aeroforce gauges in another car and I could see them fine in the light.. The one thing to watch out for is if its a daily driver that gets parked in the sun, that area can reach 120+ and the LCD on them wont work in that heat, and will eventually kill them.

That is the exact gauge I have and a LC1 wbo2. I cant read either during the day. Drives me nuts! I dont know if the aux pod location would be any better for aftermarket gauges. I ordered a few different pods, I dont like any of them now that I have them in hand. There is one that I might be able to use. However, I would prefer to put the gauges in the aux pod and get some of those hoods or the little plastic cup that turns the gauge a few degrees toward the driver.

here is mine using Autometer Sport comp gauges, repositioned the speedo and rev counter in the middle for easier viewing, and then 3 gauges in the center console.

Not difficult but fiddly, I soldered leads to the circuit board, to wire up the gauges, also had to space the new faceplate from the cluster a little due to the depth of the gauges, also mods to the cluster housing for the same reason.

You are correct that this is one of Amida's F355 interiors. My A pillar gauges are readable in daylight and the aeroforce gauge allows you to do a reverse background if you desire. The other is an analog fuel/air ration gauge and is easy to read in the daytime. I actually have more trouble seeing the center console gauges but this is because of the pop out 7" screen on the head unit. It partially blocks the clock, fuel gauge, etc. but I can either make the screen project a bit further out or fold it up to see these gauges.

Slight hijack but is that cabled gauge a Commander fuel control/tuning assembly? If you have some paperwork on how they function it would be useful to me since I am just learning about this device. I have one on my fuel injected 383 and obviously need some tuning.

Nelson,

its the program module for a FAST EZI-EFI system that I recently installed on my Edelbrock Pro-flo injection system, so much easier than the old Edelbrock control unit, the Fast unit is self-learning and so far its learning well.

In bullets: manifold/boost, exhaust temp, volts, oil pressure and under dash on passenger side almost hidden from view, the stock GT gauge panel. I kept it whereas it simplified wiring and let me maintain idiot lights for volts and oil and nutin wrong with a lil key gauge redundancy.
BTW: the toggle with cover is for putting the engine maintenance mod -error code checks etc- the the toggles are- intercooler fan, radiator fan relay by-pass, and deck lid extractor fan.

All SpeedHut Gages with a custom cut polycarbonate Main I.P. panel and a purchased aluminum Aux. gage mounting panel.
LED warning lights.
All gages are programmable and have a "sweep and reset" feature at start-up of the car.
("sweep & reset" feature is not standard on SpeedHut gages, but they will add it on special request)
