The VHX Series line of gauge instrument cluster assemblies feature fully lit needles that are highly visible, as well as backlit faces, a user-customizable display feedback and a LCD message center that has a variety of options. This message center has a numerical display of your gauges that you can cycle through and is simple to comprehend. The LCD message center has metric conversions that allow you to go from MPH to KMH with a push of a button. This display shows fully adjustable warning points in the digital message center that warns you of any potential issues with your '87-'89 Mustang.
This carbon fiber gauge assembly also displays your odometers, clock and a range of performance readings that can be reset manually as you are driving. These readings include your high speed recall, high RPM recall, 0-60 MPH (0-100 KMH) time, 1/4 mile time, and 1/4 mile end speed (trap speed). The system also has a Demonstration Mode, which allows you to receive and cycle through your instrument readouts even while your car is standing still.
Gauge Displays Include:
- Speedometer - 0-160 MPH analog, 0-255 MPH digitally
- Oil Pressure - 0-80 psi analog and digitally
- Water Temperature - 140-220F analog, 0-300F/0-150C digitally
- Fuel Level - Empty-Full analog, 0-99% digitally
- Tachometer - 0-8,000 analog, 0-9,990 digitally
- Voltmeter - 8-17 VDC analog and digitally
The gauges in this assembly feature a custom carbon fiber appearance that looks even better with a pleasing red or blue light display. This display will activate at night once you turn on your headlights or parking lights, triggering the built-in illumination of the gauge display. Additionally this VHX gauge cluster shows the indicators for your 1987-89 Mustang including:
- Turn Signals
- High Beams
- Check Engine
- Parking Brake
- Cruise Control
- Wait to Start (when equipped)
Additional attributes that you may not necessarily see are a micro-controlled precision stepper motor, as well as laboratory-grade, solid state sensors that allow for incredibly efficient readings. These sensors are primarily for water temperature, oil pressure and the speedometer pulse generator. The speedometer effectively converts a mechanical speedometer cable to digital when necessary, and is fully programmable for various tire sizes, rear-end gearing and more. The water temperature & oil pressure sensors have 1/8" NPT sensors along with bushings to adapt to 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2" NPT. The other displays will work with any sensor you have, whether it is OEM or aftermarket.
- Control Box
- 36" CAT5 Cable
- Universal Sender Pack
- Turn Signal Harness
- Indicator Block-Off Lens
- Ford Speed Adapter
Dakota Digital's gauge instrument cluster assembly has an outboard control module that delivers a case of simplicity to the system. Instead of hooking up all of the wiring straight to the instruments, they are instead routed to the control module, which is conveniently stored under the dash. A single ribbon cable then connects the control module to the display, wiping out any potential clutter. This VHX system has on-board diagnostics that aide the troubleshooting process, as well as terminal strips that make sure the termination of a wire is safe & secure.
Please Note: Instrument bezel is not included (sold separately).
