I plan on getting a clock mount anyway. Can anyone tell me if this is a stock tach face?
I appreciate your help.
That Tach face is a stock 1977 Turbo gage . Why the factory used a 1.5 boost calibration with no inter cooler pre 1978 turbos is odd unless it was a carryover from the 934-5? The question for you to figure out is is the innards calibrated to one bar needle movement and showing 1.5 on a wrong face plate or do you have a true early 1.5 unit and you are indeed over boosting. Sometimes there is a simple solution to a seemingly complex scenario
