The tach matches existing Auto Meter guages, but is black with white markings, which is a nice contrast.
Pros:
  • Black is good contrast
  • Existing guages white
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tach should work fine for your application. If you have some specific concerns or had issues with other tachs in the past you may want to contact Auto Meter and give them the spicfics of your engine and ignition system.
