Product Description

Digital Accuracy with Analog Appearance
With the stock Mustang Gauge Cluster being known for it's level of inaccuracies, Dakota Digital really changed the game with their VHX Analog/Digital Gauge Clusters for 1979-1986 Mustang. The precise digital measurement and needle control allow you to trust the information being displayed on your Instrument Cluster! A must have for your High Performance Fox Mustang!

Analog Gauge Display and Indicators
The visible gauge faces feature a carbon fiber appearance with red graduations and red back-lighting. The analog displays are Speedometer (0-160 mph), Tachometer (0-8000 RPM), Fuel Level (Full-Empty - uses stock sending unit), Water Temperature (140-220° F), Oil Pressure (0-80 psi), and Voltmeter (8-17 Volts DC). Visible indicators are RH and LH Turn Signal, High Beam, Cruise Control, Parking Brake, and Check Engine.

Digital Message Center
The Message Center displays several of the analog gauge functions in digital format such as Speedometer (0-255 MPH/KPH), Tachometer (0-9,990 RPM), Oil Pressure (0-80 psi), Water Temperature (0-300° F/0-150° C), Fuel Level (0-99%), and Voltmeter (8-17 Volts DC). Other display features include Odometer, Trip Odometer, Resettable Service Odometer, Engine Hour Meter, and Clock. There are also built in performance functions such as 0-60 mph timer, 1/4 mile timer, 1/4 mile speed, High Speed Recall, and High RPM Recall.

No Need for Aftermarket Gauges!
Keep an OE type appearance AND get the precise information you need to keep tabs on your Mustang's vitals all in this one inclusive bolt-in gauge cluster. The speedometer is user programmable, so your speed will never be wrong again regardless of tire size or rear gear changes. The Tach is adaptable to all ignition pickup styles, so you'll have correct RPM regardless of the engine. Get rid of the useless 79-86 Mustang Ammeter and take full advantage of a correct Volt Meter! The Oil Pressure and Water Temp sending units are included. Fuel Level is compatible with your existing stock Foxbody sending unit.

5 Stars   Great upgrade
By on 2/19/2016
I was tired of old none accurate 86 gauges. Dakota digital was a great upgrade, wish I would have done it sooner. The only thing that you have to hook up a light between power on and alternator single wire, tech support at Dd. Told me how to fix.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
