Autometer Gauges

Autometer Gauges

Not just for the looks, but Autometer Gauges are really quality items. I have the 2 1/16" Phantom Series, Boost/Vacuum, Water Temp., and Electrical Fuel Pressure. I have these three gauges mounted on the pillar and the triple gauges do look awesome (my point of view) and are viewable while driving.

The Elec. Fuel Pressure gauge is quite expensive, but is superb compared to the V** one that I had before. The needles move very accurately, with a gentle touch on the accelerator pedal.

For all forced induction group, I surely do recommend these gauges.

  • Fuel Pressure: Need this info for fine tuning. Very useful on the dyno, trying to tweak your combo. Remember to use Wide Band Oxygen Sensor while tuning on the dyno.
  • Water Temp: It is a piece of mind, rather than the factory gauge, cuz you will know how hot your engine is in degrees. Although, sometimes it tends to make you worry, like in a traffic jam??? LOL.
  • Boost/Vacuum: Nice to have one, cuz you'll see if your belt is slipping or you've got a vacuum leak. Not too useful otherwise.

  • Chip is perhaps one of the most talked about tuning in the EEC based Mustangs. And yes I had a chip on my setup and here's what I think of it.

  • Ever look closely at that clear plastic cover over your gauges? If you look close you'll notice that there are tons of very fine scratches on it, which dull its look. Have you ever gotten dash cleaner/polish on that plastic? I did, and the cleaner stained the plastic. No matter how much I scrubbed I couldn't get the stains off of the plastic.

    There are kits that you can buy which include some type of polish to get those scratches out, but why spend money when you probably have everything you need to polish your gauge cover already?

  • Back in May of 97, after all the long hours spent researching what I should do to my car, I decided on getting a S-Trim for myself.

  • Upgrading the TB is one of the popular mods that any Cobra owner will think of.

  • Intro

  • With SD the area you want to watch for is the cam. Once you go over 220* duration@.050, then your idle can become unstable and can start surging etc.

  • The Paxton Supercharger Kit was a rare option on Shelby Mustangs, beginning in 1966. These kits are still available today, and now consist of Paxton’s updated Novi G.S.S.
