the two central pods house the primary gauges (tach and speedo)...there looks to be secondary gauges at the bottom of each pod..does anyone know for sure it that's correct? i would assume that if they indeed are secondary gauges, they would be the fuel level and the coolant temp.

looking at the pics i can discern that one of the four secondary gauges forward of the shifter is a volt meter...does anyone know what the other three gauges are?

Here this picture will help answer your question:



Looks like the secondary gauges in the IP are water temp on the left, fuel level on the right.

Console gauges appear to be: torque, volts, oil temp, oil pressure.

Can somebody enlighten me to the need for a torque gauge?

For S%^% and giggles.... :D

Really there's no need for an oil pressure gauge. If you notice that you have no oil pressure, it's pretty much too late for your engine anyway.

thanks for the info...i must say, i too have never heard of a torque gauge; is it a measurement of the torque output of the motor?

Get rid of the torque gauge, move the water temp to its place. Move the fuel gauge to replace the water temp under the speedo and put a shift light under the tach where the fuel gauge was. A programmable shift lift will be infinitely more usable than a novelty torque gauge.

Actually the press release info said a tranny temp gauge instead of a torque gauge. I hope its right, a torque gauge is a useless thing.

Supposedly the 4 gauges near the shifter are "optional". If you choose not to have them, what will go there instead?
yeah, I saw that too in one of the press releases recently...you'd probably some sort of cubby hole in there place. Personally, I like them.

Hmm, yeah.. from the press release:
More great detail is evidenced in the available center-console gauge cluster, which takes its cue from a similar option on 1969 Camaros. It displays oil temperature, oil pressure, state-of-battery and transmission fluid temperature, all highlighted with modern LED backlighting.
I would sure like a trans temp gauge instead of a torque gauge that's for sure! :)

Instead of a torqur gauge they should give us a indicator of how close to getting a ticket you are!:eek:

That way you could back off and drive like a human for a while.:lol:

The picture is correct.
That particular picture is from the UK release, and they use the metric system.

With the push of a button it can switch between km/H and MPH.
Looks like on this car the numbers stay put but the needles change.

And hopefully it's the V6, because my V8 better have more than a 370 lb-ft Torque gauge and a 160 mph speedo.
