I need a Tach for my chevy II. I saw a picture of the SunPro super tach III and I like it. Do you think it would look good mounted in the top of my steering column or do you think I should look into buying a different tach? Sunpro has been around for a long time but they dont seem as popular. I always thought autometer was a little better because they seem to cost more. So what are your opinions on sunpro and the supertach III? This will be for my 194 six and maybe a 383 to come and its a daily driver.

I'm a SunPro man myself. I've got a SuperTach II I think and it hasn't failed me yet. I also run a triple gauge set (temp, volt, oil), but the temperature has busted in the past (only like $15). SunPro is a good brand, but I'd go with Autometer if you were serious enough to sport the dough.

Remember, you get what you pay for.

I have a SuperTach II and it only lasted about 2 years........I had an old Sun though that lasted several years,was still working fine when I sold the car.
I now have Autometer in my cars.

My brother gave me a Sun Pro II tach years ago. I installed it because it was free. To my surprise, I ran incredibly consistent times at the drag strip with this tach. (Enough to run very competitive in brackets.) For this reason, I have continued using them.



I tried the Sun Pro Powerline tach with shift light a few years ago and hated it. It seemed kind of lazy about following the engine rpms. (That and I can't get used to shifting with a light. Too many years of watching that needle, I guess.)



I haven't had any experience with the Super Tach III.
