lol, monster tacho's. I thought this thread was a joke at first.

In terms of legalities, from what I hear, if the tach is mounted on top of the dash, or above the dash its illegal. The shift lights are illegal for sure. (from what I hear).

As for the questions of it fitting. No it wont, it shouldn't even be attempted, and they don't work in falcons, they aren't compliant with the ECU outputs, and need a $7 gazzilion dollar translator to convert the signal from anti-rice to a rice signal.

ps - I hope your car is a manual. Otherwise.... lol.


Cheers

no tacho :S
didnt know they didnt come with one... mine did

im not sure if the higher series came with one, like the ghias or something?
if they do, if i were you id buy a new cluster instead of the monster tacho, which is a lot of wank factor

The spacs and fairmonts and so on got tacho's. So just go get a mid-high series cluster. Not that expensive, be cheaper than that autometer one (and they ARE expensive). Judging by your username, you want a sleeper? heading in the wrong direction mate. lol


Cheers

Cheers
