factory tachos? the 6 has redline at 4750 whilst the v8 tacho (302 or 351 non GT) has a 5250 redline.

Re: dash

hey if you spot an 8000k one they're worth nothing and you can pass them on to me!

If you do stumble onto one of these gems DONT pass at up! Very rare as they were intended for the phase4 and ended up in rpo83 and the odd GTs in xa's
