1978- 82 Chevy Corvette VHX Instruments
From Dakota Digital
Forget about Bloomington Gold certification; Corvette is a driver’s car! Whether you yanked out the anemic L82 in favor of a poked and stroked big block or have a turbocharged LS, the supplied sending units have you covered. Your choice of a third LCD message center (VET) or analog clock (VTA) fills the fifth gauge opening in the center cluster, while a fullsize speedometer and tach are front and center for the driver. Speedometer and Tachometer gauge housing has been completely replicated in billet aluminum, powdercoated in a flat black to keep the original theme.Oil Pressure, Water Temperature, Voltmeter, Fuel Level and an additional LCD Message Center (if selected) attach directly to the back side of the stock center console bezel.
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!
Designed to fit Factory Console Bezel (not included, bezel shown for reference only).
|·1/8" NPT, ground isolated sensor with a 10 ft harness.|
|·1/8" NPT solid state sensor with a 10 ft harness.|
|Cable Driven Speed Sensor/ Generator|
|·Replaces GM style speedometer cables with a 10 ft harness. Sensor requires approximately 5" clearance extending between the cable drive output and any obstruction. Part # 130011 (sold separately) allows for relocation of the pulse generator when additional clearance is required. (Tremec and Ford style adaptors available on request.)|
|·Each kit comes with 1/8" to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT bushings along with bushings for 12mm and 16mm x 1.5 threads.|
|·Dakota Digital instruments are programmed and operated by the push of a button. Simply mount the included pushbuttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient and easily accessible location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.|
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.
Dakota Digital is proud to introduce the BIM Expansion modules for Dakota Digital VFD, VHX, HDX and RTX instrument systems. The introduction of the Dakota Digital BIM modules allow you to add up to an additional 16 gauges, that's right we said SIXTEEN specialty gauges to your vehicle without the need to cut extra holes in the dash or installing pillar and pod mounts to your columns or under the dash.
Please note that the BIM modules are only compatible with current VFD, VHX, HDX and RTX control boxes which have a black plastic housing. Older control boxes with metal housings are not compatible with the BIM modules.
