Randye, awesome! Do you have any pics? I'd love to see them.
MOBILE, lol, that is funny! Apparently these gauges are
addictive. Yours look great, and it's really cool that they raised your redline. I didn't know they would do that.
Yours are very close to mine. I also want a fuel pressure gauge and another for the IC water. Those can wait a little bit though, but will probably happen when I figure out how to fit about 12 gauges in the car.
Donnie072003, I thought of selling them, but I'm keeping the HVAC overlay, controller, and power supply so I don't think they'd be of much use to anyone without spending more money to get the parts to make them work, at which point you might as well buy the whole Fiero kit from them. *shrug*.
Also, these have my added logo/type so unless someone with a GT with a turbo wanted them, they wouldn't match.
That one would be easy to fix though, I have flat black sticker-backed vinyl and I could cut little rectangles to cover them up.
I had Speedhut overlays in my old Fiero and they were absolutely awesome looking. The first time I saw stock Fiero gauges was well after that, and especially lit up at night, they almost made me throw up.
From then on I vowed to have no more stock looking gauges!
I'm glad I waited for the speedo, because I almost bought one before they came out with the GPS version. I saw it and what it can do and I had to have it! I always have around 15 satellites linking up to my car GPS at any given time in this area, so for the most part I'll never worry about inaccuracy, and even 3 satellite links are quite accurate. Going under a tunnel will kill my speedo, but that won't bother me.
What makes me giddy is the fact that its features include (but aren't limited to):
# Display 0-60 Time and distance in feet.
# Display 1/4 mile time and speed.
# Show elevation
# Peak Recall max speed during run
# Current direction heading
# Accurate GPS Clock
# Current Speed in LCD
# Hot start satellite acquisition allows GPS speedo to function within 2-3 seconds of power up
It's like a G-tech but using GPS! That's how a lot of the car mags test 1/4 mile runs, they have GPS systems.
The speedo sensor in the tranny will still need to hook up to the ECU so it can get its reading, but that's already happening so no worries.
The tach is perfect for my needs too, and that adjustable shift light warning setup is cool.
I'm glad you guys agree that they're the best on the market. I haven't used the actual gauges yet, but I know how they're designed, and that makes them extremely accurate (especially compared to the stock spiral-spring junk!). In addition, you just can't beat a lifetime warranty!
