Gauge location


I was wondering where i can put these so they look a whole lot better. I hate where they are right now. Plus I want to get a mint dash pad soon. I would love to get the OEM cluster working again or even better exchange it for a 140mph cluster and then get the proper controller for the speedo. The car was a 91rsv6 now has a 357 4spd auto

Re: Gauge location

If your transmission is a cable drive you can use this Vss and a Dakota digital sgi-5e

as for the tach

the other gauges might look good in a Pilar pod.

what was the car before 3.1l , tpi or tbi ?
If the car was a 3.1l or tpi is the ecm still in place ?
tbi uses a Vss yellow box next to the ecm.

Re: Gauge location

The ecm is a Vss buffer. If it’s gone you need a gm yellow Vss buffer or a Dakota digital unit.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/86-91-Buick...er!20876!US!-1

for rear end gear ratio change and to calibrate for the speed sensor gears your better off going with the Dakota digital.
