New Vintage Three-in-One Instrument Sets

Running out of room in your dash? New Vintage has taken all of your pertinent information and placed it in one gauge package. The 4 3/8-inch gauges feature programmable speedometer, tachometer, voltmeter, oil pressure, water temperature and a GM-match fuel level gauge. The high-tech stepper motor movements and LED lighting behind the scenes are the core of the units, and the styling carries on what New Vintage designers have started with in their famous Woodward and 69 Series.

Each gauge features integrated turn signals and warning lamps, sending units, mounting hardware and color-coded wiring harnesses for easy installation. As always, the gauges are built in the New Vintage shop in Detroit and with a five-year warranty.

Need to monitor other vitals? New Vintage has a full line of boost, AFR, EGT, oil temp, and pretty much any other instrument to match these sets to keep your dash tidy and cohesive.

The new 68 Series (pictured) three-in-one gauges have the flavor of 1967-68 Camaro and Firebirds, and are also available with a mounting bracket to install in the stock dash. New Vintage will also be releasing the three-in-one instruments in its Performance, 1967 and Redline Series later this year.

BBK Engine Swap Friendly Headers

These headers are for the installation of the 2011 Ford 5.0L Coyote engine with a standard trans into the Fox Body and SN95 Mustangs. The X-pipe positions the outlets in the same location as stock for connection to any stock-style cat-back system. This swap is going to be red hot soon, so BBK has led the field by introducing its full-length headers and X-pipe (not pictured) for the installation of the new Coyote 5.0 into the 1986-2004 Mustangs.

The new Coyote swap headers from BBK Performance are offered with 1 ¾-inch primary tubes and come in chrome or polished ceramic finish.  Stainless versions could be offered in the future. A matching 3-inch X-pipe is also available in an off-highway or catted version.

Serious enthusiasts will purchase these headers knowing that tuning their the engines would be standard practice, BBK tried to go a step further and provided an extra O2 sensor port in the driver side collector for the connection of a wideband monitor. The headers come with the needed hardware, gaskets, O2 sensor wire extensions and an instruction sheet with a few install tips.
