Thank You guys for the nice comments.

I think I've got the timing curve and A/F Ratio tuned and it is running great. Hoping the TCI gathering happens this April so I can get out and meet some of the SNS group. About an 8 hour round trip for me to get down to LA area. Can't wait!

Hello D,
The Gauge Cluster is Classic Instruments.
http://www.classicinstruments.com/in...ID=newproducts
They sell the cluster in a few different gauge styles. The one I have is the G-Stock gauge style. Real nice kit that comes with the speed pulse generator, temp sender , oil sender, all connectors that plugged right into the AAW Harness. Easy to install! And it comes with a new lenses for the bezel.
You can buy them from Summit Racing, Jegs, and others. I purchased mine through Classic Industries when they were having a 20% off sale going. Saved me like 160 bucks. Suprised it qualified for their discount.
You can also find sellers on ebay that have pretty good pricing, but I felt more comfy buying from a larger store.
