The LCD message centers have a numerical display for your gauges that is easy to read. These message centers also show your odometers, clock and a range of performance readings that can be reset during the normal operation of your 1979-1986 Mustang. These readings are your high speed recall, high RPM recall, 0-60 MPH (0-100KMH) time, 1/4 mile time and 1/4 mile end speed (trap speed). These message centers also have the option to rotate between the standard & metric systems with just a push of a button, going between MPH & KPH as well as Fahrenheit & Celsius.
This VHX gauge cluster gives you instrument readouts even while your Mustang is parked with a Demonstration Mode. This mode is a great way for you to boast about your system while hanging at an event or show. The gauge assembly also provides comprehensively adjustable warning points that appear in the digital message centers and make you aware of any problems that may be going on with your ‘79-‘86 Mustang.
Gauge Displays Include:
- Speedometer - 0-160 MPH Analog, 0-255 MPH Digitally
- Fuel Level - Empty-Full Analog, 0-99% Digitally
- Tachometer - 0-8,000 Analog, 0-9,990 Digitally

The gauges have a custom black alloy face that is wonderfully complemented by a red, white or blue light display. This display has a built-in illumination, so the lights will turn on at night once you turn on the headlights or parking lights. The VHX gauge cluster also displays the 79-86 Mustang's various indicators, including your turn signals, cruise control, check engine, high beams, parking brake and wait to start (when equipped).
There are some features of this VHX gauge assembly that you may not see including a micro-controlled precision stepper motor and laboratory-grade, solid state sensors that implement the gauges’ tremendous accuracy. These sensors are mainly for oil pressure, water temperature and the speedometer pulse generator. The speed sensor transforms a mechanical speedometer cable to digital when needed, while the water temp & oil pressure sensors have 1/8" NPT sensors as well as bushings to change to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT. The other displays in this gauge assembly properly operate with any sensor, whether it's stock or aftermarket.

This gauge assembly has an outboard control box that makes your wiring system clean & simple. Instead of wiring a bunch of cables straight to the instruments, they are routed into the control box which is conveniently hidden under the dash. A single ribbon cable is then routed from the box to the display, eliminating any potential clutter. This system also has terminal strips that assure the termination of any wiring is safe & secure, as well as on-board diagnostics that make troubleshooting easier.
Please Note: Instrument bezel is not included (sold separately).
