Gauges....

With all my new mods I was thinking about things and just wondering what 4 gauges people reccomend I should get?

Also I know my car stock can hit 155 ( not that ive done it a few times or anything.....) is there anyway to get a different speedomoter that goes to 200MPH?

you can get a digital speedo that looks just like a gauge, can be placed in the a-pillar
sorry, i can't find a link for it

or a mechanical speedo
http://www.optauto.com/index.htm?pag...itemsperpage=9

3 things though....one, your car probably can't go 200mph, it has to be geared differently to go that speed. two, right now even though your speedo goes up to 155mph, your car probably doesn't go 155mph b/c after a certain speed, manufacturers don't correct the speedo for very fast speeds. three, the saab probably won't be able to go 200mph for the reason of drag; the car is simply not aerodynamically capable of going 200mph unless it has 1000hp

hope this helps

I fully realize the car will prob never be able to hit 200 MPH but at the same time theres no reason to get a speedo that goes to 175.... when i can just get a 200 one...

Anyway I want to replace the in dash one... anyone know where i can get one that looks nice and goes to 200?

seriously now....i'm thinking you might have to replace the entire gauge cluster, i don't think the speedo face can just come out

anyone know if this is true?

I think i'd be a better idea to mount a touch screen LCD in the dash. You could hook up a GPS to the system and not have to worry about rewireing anything. GPS will be wayyyyyyyyy more accurate than any gauge could ever be.

Best of luck!
