They look like it i guesss. Why are they in 3 sections though? What if they don't line up correctly on your cluster? Than you will be viewing gaps in your cluster and it's something you have to see everytime you get in your car...

IMO, ill never install gauges again. Did it in my other car and i had to remove the needles and do my best to get them back to normal. And i lost some of those black pins that hold the needles at 0mph and 0rpm's and such like that. It was a major headache and not worth it... Get a whole new cluster if you can. But than again, other people have had nothing but good things to say about installing gauges. I would personally take the info from me though Save yourself a pain. Unless you can get the slide over guages or something, don't do it.

i had got similar ones from AM. if they are the slide over type(slides over the needles) then you'll have no problems.

Why do those only go up to 7k? Our stock ones go to 8k, so wouldn't that affect the reading or can that be adjusted?

The actual product they ship might differ, but that pic looks like it's for the 94-98's. The one I used was just a one piece overlay. I recall having to remove the 0mph/0rpm stop pins, but it was no big deal. Putting the gauge needles back just right was a little tricky, though; took a couple tries to get it right.

I think I got mine from Brothers Performance for like 25 bucks or something. If you get the kind where you have to pull the needles off make sure you remember where they all were, like fuel. If I were to do it over I would have just boight a new cluster, which is on the list.

if you want your gauges 100% accurate after removing them, follow my how-to, located here. it's better than just throwing your needles on after doing the swap. after all, what's the sense in having gauges if you know in your heart they're no longer accurate?

Get those simco gauges on AM, or an auto mach1 cluster, or get some led bulbs to change the color

i actually think with the led's in the 99-04 stangs you have to remove the needles as well. idkkkk lol.

get an auto mach1 cluster
