  • shift light

    i've got a gutted 97 sc2. i want to put a shift light in, but i'm not sure what kind i want. i'd like to get some opinions.


    just a standard shift light


    5'' tach with standard shiftlight


    3 3/4'' tach with small shift light




    i'm not sure how bright the little tach light is going to be, or i'd probably get the last one.

    i'm gonna have some pics up of my interior later, but here is a quick rundown.
    radar detector center and bottom of windshield, aem wbo2 mounted right where that indent is in the dash cover. there will also be another gauge right next to, but i'm not sure what yet. they are going to be welded to the metal bracket on the dash. and there will be a small hole in the dash cover. my afc neo is going to be right where the traction control and rear defrost buttons are. i would like the tach right on the side of the stock gauge cluster.
    i want to be able to see my wideband, tach, and afc all in one shot. also i want to have it close enough to see all of them in one camera shot so i can go back after racing and watch all of them.

    has anyone used one of the tachs with the small led shift llight?

    Personally I say go with just the light. A big tach isn't really necessary since you have one already, right in your face. Just position the camera to see it all. If you have your heart set on getting a tach, then get the last one.

          ?? what is the purpose of installing a shift light? what benefit does it give you?

            you set it to where you want to shift and you wait for it to light up

            no more watching tach.... as much

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

              i used to think the same thing, then i got a safc neo that tells me my max rpm. and sometimes in 1st and second i can't look at the tach long enough to watch it hit 67. especially if the tires are spinning.

              i'm really leaning towards the big tach, but i don't want to feel ricerish

                i would have to go with the last one....its a pretty big tach, readily visible, and the light should be pretty bright

                        You'll get a lot more consistant time if you get a light in there and your shifting at the same number everytime.

                          do the shiftlights need a controller? or do they control themselves

                          edit; NM I just bought one, lol.

                            Shiftlights are great. I have had one in both cars for years. I did recently add an autometer tach to my SC1 as it is more accurate than the stocker but it's not a monster and I mounted it on the steering column in front of the oem spot, so no big ricer shit on my dash and the shiftlight is in the left airvent.

                              right, i bet you won't hit the same rpm everytime, i am a fairly consistent driver at the track and when i checked my NEO after running on the street my max rpms are in the area of 6300-6400
