Revised this post...

The one I put up had a manual tacho, with a digital screen underneath for readouts and I guess you want all digital. I'll leave the link though as it's a damn good bit of kit!

It's all about the ASW home boy.

This was a fiddle to fit tbh until I got the hang of it. Having the datalogger is a huge help as you basically plug the ecu into the datalogger, then boom, all sensors automatically on dash that the ecu gets. Speed is from gps, other functions are wired into normal loom (indicators etc)

I have a ETB digidash2 Pro with logger. Nice dash with all the functions you could need. Fully programmable displays through a laptop and not that expensive.
Obviously the best choice would be motec, but that is quite the opposite.

Usually hate the idea of a digi dash, massive heap of money that isn't needed to be spent. However with a balls out 9,000 rpm target there I little option

Race tech 2 like ross has looks good in my opinion!

I prefer analogue dials lads... like the Stack but that only has RPM in analogue... so i was thinking the SPA is exactly what im looking for...

Analogue speed & RPM + digital for oil temp/oil pressure/water temp etc

Fair enough, I'll stick to £30 tachometer and the 3x VDO 52mm gauges I bought for £15!

I'll keep my pennies for other stuff

Yeah probably best, I want to keep it tidy so all the dials inside the dash area & want to keep the radio so not really anywhere else to put extra dials in the saxo dash

I can get you a dash to suit some gauges and I'm sure you could fit a stereo in it,

It comes from Mongolia but I can get it delivered for £750.00

I don't see any real changes from standard dials to the spa?

I do quite like the stack dash's but I don't think I'll really benefit from one!

Lol Nick, can I buy it direct instead?!

9k rpm Nick, + has oil pressure, oil temp & water temp built in and retains the analogue dials which personally I prefer
