  • I bought the Intellitronix gauge set and upgraded the speedometer to a tach/speed combo. To me they look great and work great!

  • I have a set of VDO in my Plymouth, and they will be my last. Gas gauge sticks (yes it's the gauge and not the wire or sending unit), and the Tach has a redline flag that the knob fell off of, and the flag fell into the gauge itself. Can't remove the lense, so I was kinda screwed. I finaly resorted to taking a cutoff wheel and cutting a slot in the bottom of the housing (between the inner face and the lense) and I FINALLY got the edge of the redline flag to peek through the slit. Grabbed it with needle-nose, and put the gauge back in, glued the knob on the dial and called it good. I will say that the VDO water temp sensor and the gauge are within about 2F, so at least that works. Two out of six is failing in my mind, it's not like they are cheap.

  • Gauges look and perform GREAT! Just upgraded to their new speedo/tach combo gauge in one and it is awesome too. Had a small problem with a digit display for the odometer, called their tech support and they sent a new gauge just like that! Very pleased!

  • I emailed them with questions and got a response within a day. Talked back and forth several times with their rep "Fred", he was very informative and a gentleman. Ordered a set, be here on Wednesday, I'll let you know how they work.
    Thanks everyone

  • Considered them a few years ago. Went to their web site for tech info and a catalog. . Took 7 emails to finally get a response over a 5 week period, You try to contact them.........

    Used Stewart-Warner on 2 newstalgia hot rods = click, click noise, face would fog up, goofy 4 mph increments.. Poor answers from SW.

    Tried Cyberdyne Digital 2 times. OK.

    Been using Dakota Digital since 1989. Never a problem. Tech is great. broad selection. Other good stuff. Lifetime warranty.

  • Thank you, good points. I'm thinking of upgrading to digital for a new look, I'll look at some other options as well, thanks again.

  • I do know Dolphin Gauges. Have them in my '46 Ford. I have had very good luck with them. I chose Dolphin because at the time Dolphin was only company that offered a 5" speedometer and Tach. Great company to work with.

  • 27ratrod Great advice. The last 10 cars I have built I used the Dolphin sets. Good quality and no issues so far. Priced right as well. I have had several cars with the Dakota Digital and some work very well and some have not. I would say about half have worked and the other half had issues.
