Dakota Digial - 1990- 93 Ford Mustang VHX Instruments
By 1990, Ford had the Fox platform dialed, but enthusiasts have pushed it much farther than the engineers ever dreamed. In an effort to keep pace with the ever-advancing Fox-body following, we placed six analog-gauge sweeps in the stock cluster with twin LCD message centers, putting nearly unlimited information at your finger tips. Expandable with the BIM-series of add-on modules, this direct-fit package puts the rest field on notice.
Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems . Completely engineered and manufactured at our facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!
Requires use of original front bezel.
Which extras items that are not included with this kit does Dakota Digital recommend that you consider?
Because Dakota Digital includes the required sensors for the Oil Pressure, Water Temperature and Speedometer with all its RTX, HDX, VHX and VFD instrument systems, in many cases no additional parts will be required. However, you may wish to consider the following optional items.
GSS-3000 - Universal Gear Position Sensor
All Instrument packages contain a gear shift indicator display allowing the transmission gear position (Park, Reverse, etc.) to be shown within the message center. The GSS-3000 accommodates automatic transmissions with 2- 4 forward gears and enjoys a simple and straightforward installation.
DIM-1 - Light Dimming Knob
Although Dakota Digital instrument systems are programmable for both day and night intensity levels, the DIM-1 will allow rotary, or on-the-fly brightness adjustment added convenience.
SEN-06-1 - Fuel Level Sensor
Dakota Digital instrument systems are designed to utilize a stock or aftermarket fuel level sensor. If a universal or replacement sensor is desired, the SEN-06-1 is a great choice.
BIM-01-2 - ODB II/ Can Interface Module
The BIM-01-2 OBD-II (J1850/CAN) Interface connects directly to the ECM diagnostic port to extract engine and transmission data and supply it to the VFD/ VHX/ HDX/ RTX instrument, making installation a breeze.
BIM-17-2 - Compass w/ Outside Temperature Module
The Dakota Digital BIM-17-2 makes it easy to add compass and outside air temperature information to your VFD/ VHX/HDX/ RTX instrument system. Readouts are visible in the instrument system's message centers; sending units and mounting hardware included.
