I've been looking at the additional set for the dash. Anyone installed these, and if so how do you like them? I see their described as autometer gauges and wondering just what that means. Since theres no holes to drill for mounting the cluster set, how are the gauges fed data to show readings? Much appreciate any education you can provide before i drop a pretty penny.

Hey I'm interested in this also. "Center Guage Cluster?" - Never heard of this. Where is it actually mounted and what are the actual guages (A/F, Fuel Pressure, etc...)?

Is there a website?

Thanks

Mounted above the two center air vents. Uses 3M adhesive strips. Shelby's catalog has it listed. Its contoured to fit in the dipped portion of the dash. Holds boost, fuel, oil pressure gages, either bought as an assembly or mount only. shelbyperformanceparts.com

For those that were interested in how the gauges get power, I saw a Shelby GT at my local dealership with the center guage cluster. I took a pic of it with my camera phone, kind of hard to see but basicly the wire is wedged between the dash and the windshield :rolleyes:

Elite, what am I looking at? I can't tell. Can you edit the photo and place and arrow on what you specifically wanted to highlight?

Thanks

there is a wire from the guy in the blue shirts head up to the flag. you are looking in the front windshield from the outside kinda like you are looking at the VIN# on a car. The guy in the blue shirt is where the glass meets the dash and the flag is were the wire comes out of the back of the guages.

hope this helps describe the pic.

O.K. thanks. Daaaaaahhhhhhhh, I can clearly see it now. Anyway, I have 20/80 vision which makes me legally blind without glasses. So don't beat up on me toooooo bad.

Yet being so "Patriotic" I was only looking at the "Mighty Red, White and Blue."

Thanks

There is also this option from Speed of Sound. I like it because is retains the lines of the dash. THe gauges are also facing the driver.

I am going with the pillar gauge, I don't like the idea of bolting or taping something to my dash. Speed of sound has a real nice pillar setup, had pillar guages on my last toy so I am use to seeing gauges there. Allot of ricers have the pillar gauges is the only bad thing but I need a boost gauge and a A/F guage.. well I don't need them but I don't let need stop me from buying stuff :)

Picture 1 how it looks at night, picture 2 during the day, and picture 3... well that is something that would cost more than a Shelby but :banana_hitit:
