Gauge trio

For those interested this is what it looks like with the two additional gauges installed.

Looks pretty spiffy, Maybe later you would want to color coordinate then to match your dash gauges... black face and redish orange needs.

Ops, cool, Maybe you can buy some aluminum gauge rings, since they are satin finish they should match up really nice with your new gauges.

Ohio,

The gauges turned out well. I'd like to see a better photo of them also. Autometer?

Listen, I need you to be very careful using those. It takes a skilled driver years of practice to be able to safely glance down at those...to say nothing of switching from Howard 100 - Howard 101 on your Sirius, without completely losing control. Look down for a split second too long, look back up, swerve to miss a Hyena crossing the road and...

Ohio, I bet someday in the future, a future 987 owner with Sport Chrono will convert the "dash wart" to a boost gage after a supercharger install!!

I have been a Howard Stern fan for a long time, so much so that I subscribed to Sirius to continue to enjoy his show. I must say though that I stopped listening to him last year. For some reason I just enjoyed him much more on the radio than on satellite. Can't fault the guy for making a great deal though ( $500 million dollar contract plus the $83 million dollar bonus he received on Tuesday ! )

I've often thought about that--I wish there was a factory option to replace the lame chrono with something useful, like fuel pressure or oil temp...

I agree with you Eslai, even a clock would have been better.
