Why do you have the need for a couple of tachos? I mean surely there all going to give the same reading...

Arent they illegal if it goes above your steering wheel? As its considered an impact zone...What gauges would you be mounting in there neways its not like a non turbo car really needs any.

Well he said tachos... But I guess he ment gauges. THere's plenty of gauges that are good for NA cars, I've added an oil pressure and voltmeter to mine... Some people don't trust the factory temperature gauge (as it doesn't actually tell the temperature). Others want engine and transmission oil temperature too...
A lot of cops will let you off if there not huge and very much blocking your view.

Look at the BMW Alpina's - they give gbox/diff/engine/coolant temp (in degrees). Theres also oil pressure, coolant pressure, AFR(possibly 2 for a V8), manifold pressure (or vac).. god knows what else :)
