Something to be aware of is the fact that some tachs can lag quite a bit behind the actual acceleration rate of the engine. You could actually be shifting a few hundred rpm higher than you think. They could still be accurate at any steady cruise rpm.

Thats what I was worrying about. It is going to be for a 1970 SS with about 550 HP and a tremec TKO-600. I like the idea of factory appearance but I also like the idea of having a more precise gauge.

Install hidden shift light, eg. use park brake lamp as shift light.
I like that idea, has anybody done this and have pics of the work. I just have a basic SS dash but am very tempted to go with the full SS gauge package. Like I said though I am hesitant to trust the accuracy of these gauges vs. autometers like the tach and the oil psi, temp, vac. ...etc.

My chevelle is a 69 with warning lights, after restoration of said vehicle did not want to deviate from stock apearance so i purchased an autometer shift module kit and installed it under dash out of sight, then utilized e-brake light as shift light. If stock look is what you are seeking i can assure this will work.:thumbsup:
