SHO 150 mph 8k tach cluster

I pulled an SHO cluster from a 97 tbird. Reads up to 150 mph and 8k on the tach.

This fits only a 97 bird. This is exactly as is from someones swap they did on a bird don't know if they looked like this stock but its pretty cool looking.



This is $65 plus shipping through fedex which I think the rates for something like this run $12. If you want to use PP please add $2.50 but I take MO's too from reputable members.

This is my very first time running across one of these in person and I searched. This is plug and ploy and can be found through the site if you use the search function. 97 is the only year where this handy dandy upgrade drops right in. Not even the 94-95 scs get an 8k tach so yeah for 97s only. I understand these are hard to come by most of the time. I find the old shos all the time but this wasn't even a SHO just a bird where someone had this swapped in.

FYI you only use the "pods" from the SHO, you swap them into the stock 97 base.

Also keep in mind the idiot lights don't line up; on the stock cluster they're fuel cutoff, low washer, low coolant, Cruise on, T/A off and O/D off. On the SHO tach they're O/D off, rear lamp out, ABS warning, cruise on, brake warning, oil warning.

The tach is a direct swap, but the text/graphics for the idiot lights is different: http://forums.tccoa.com/showpost.php...0&postcount=57

You can solve that with a set of custom gauge faces or you can just memorize which position means what (IE, O/D off would now light up with an oil warning light, low coolant would show up with ABS).

On some of them, you can take care of the problem with re-pinning, but others become a problem. I did the 120MPH taurus gauge swap into a 97. It looks so sweet, but factory at the same time.
