RPM Gauge Installed

Hi,

Since my car didn't come with rpm gauge, I always wanted to know how the car idle, shifts and keep an eye on the rpms.
So i bought one and finished installing today.
It doesn't afect the rest of the gauges and I mounted on the steering stack with a flange, no drilling or damage to the surround.
I love it. I can tell when it shifts and how the engine is working even when the music is loud.

Here is a pic and and an idea for anyone, the gauge is about 39 bucks and there are so many options out there.
Cheers.

Cool!!! I dig this idea! In a few years, when I get my a$$ in gear, I'm going to redo a 300SEL, and I have every intention of tossing the clock and putting a tach there instead.

I'd be curious to know what kind of RPMs you pull in town and on the highway...

Thank you sir.
I do 2.000 rpms at 60km/h.
the car shifts at 2500 rpms exactly and idles at 800 rpms not in gear and 500 rpms in gear. I need to increase the rpms so it sits at 800rpms in gear.

All available thanks to the rpm gauge.
i found that there is an rpm gauge that goes into the clock opening. I didn't know one existed but I was told it does.

I like my setup and will leave it as is.

Cheers.
