Early iteration, with trans temp gauge for the delicate 915 transmission. Had sheet metal box custom made and powdercoated. Red switch is for front oil cooler fan.






Then the latest iteration, replacing the trans temp gauge with an FJO WB02 gauge, and adding a switch to log data to the ECU. Pardon the reflection from the flash. Turns out I don't have a better one.

The AFR gauge has been replaced by the more accurate Innovate XD-16 in the same location.

I shoe horned a Innovate G5 gauge into a tach. The numbers are fuzzy due to a slow shutter speed.

No one has showed their PLX Organic LED (OLED) as installed in the tachometer by In Your Face Gauges, Inc. Basically, the OLED functions like a small TV screen and you can display whatever you want. No moving parts like in an analog gauge and do digital segments or light to worry about.

I use mine to show Boost while driving and AFRs when I am in troubleshooting or maintenance mode. It flashes the PLX logo for a few seconds when the key is turned on.

Harold, THAT is innovative.
I'd love to see more details or a description of how you did this, although I guess it would be fairly obvious once you have the two gauges apart. Who would have thought that there was enough space in there!
I am inching closer towards a 3.6 conversion and I already have the G5 gauge - now I know where it will go. Thanks.

How was the job installing the PLX on your car? Did you do the tach yourself or did you have PLX do it?

Shades,
InYourFace Gauges did mine but they may be out of business. Clewett seems to be doing it now: http://www.clewett.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_46&products_id=222
Anyway, InYourFace modified my tach and I installed it. The install was easy, plug and play. PLX supplied the display module, AFR & boost/vacuum sensors, and the LED readout.
