Dog? Where is there dog? That there is pure genuine 100% murrican rainbow kitten butterfly unicorn. I got papers and everything.

I like Rev's, from a functional standpoint, the mostly unicolor background is better.

Unless Rev could put actual rhinestones on the rainbow kitten and bejazzle it all up ... that would be pretty fabulous.

Needs to be blue. I got a blue theme going on my car. My current gage faces are blue indiglow where the face itself lights up switchable between green and blue and has a brightness ****. I put orange neon paint on the back side of the needles they light up nice and I have polished aluminum button covers for the needle centers. If Im changing them Ill want a full set so they match.

Also I think the primary scale with big numbers needs to be the 3.909. As I probably won't be looking at the speedo much while autocrossing. speed is more interesting to look at on the track.

which speedo driven gear tooth count is that set up for?

Lol it looked like a dog when I glanced at it. Upon further inspection it is indeed a cat.

20T,21T,22T,23T, and 24T

with the 24t and 4.778 speedo will read optimistic by ~ 4-6 mph at highway speed I estimate. Not too terrible. I think 21T will work nicely with a 3.909. I was using a the 20T with a 3.636.

Cant seem to get a 21 or a 24t from Mazda got them from Chikara they came direct shipped from Maruha in Japan housing, seals, O-rings all assembled.

Outstanding research and solution Bob! My car has an OEM instrument cluster that I have gone to great lengths to keep stock looking. Matching boost gauge where the oil pressure goes, working oil pressure where the fuel goes, linearized water temp in OEM location and fuel gauge relocated to the eyeball vent to the left of the cluster. Lots of folks would just put an array of aftermarket gauges on the dash but sometimes it is nice to complete a pet project!

Ok, I think I've done a decent job of cleaning this thread up.

I left the talk of the dual speedo talk up, because it was a reasonable solution to Bob's original question, but I think all talk of buying funny gauges from Rev is gone.

If not, please MESSAGE me with suggested post #s that should be moved to this thread:

https://www.miataturbo.net/miata-par...onfetti-83110/

That's it.

Any more talk of gauges and your posts get deleted.

Carry on Bob!

Curly, you da real MVP. Props

Bob, how are you dealing with the different drive gears inside the transmission? I was under the impression there were 2 standard "driven" gear diameters and they were not interchangeable. It appears from your pictures that may not be the case?
