Default DSE dash insert with Holley Digital Dash

I'm in the midst of installing an LS twin turbo set up in my '69 Camaro with Holley EFI. I bought a DSE dash insert, originally planning on installing analog gauges, but I'm intrigued by Holley's digital dash set up. Has anyone used it and installed it in the DSE insert? Alternative recommendations?

I think you will have a hard time making it fit. The space between the drop in the center (where the dash sticks out) and the bottom is too short for the holley screen. I'm sure if you're willing it can be modified but it will be a tight fit.

I am looking at putting a racepak IQ3s in my car and it was a TIGHT fit and it's over 1/2" shorter.

This is my DSE dash with the IQ3 set in the position it would be installed and as you can see it's very tight fit.


The racepak dimensions are a good bit smaller than the holley in height.


Holley is 4.625" tall and 7.5" wide. Width should be no issue, but height will be the difficulty.

Another example of an option and showing the space limitations is Hellfire's dash.



That display is a tight fit and it measures 4" tall x 6" wide.

Thanks guys! It looks like the Holley option is out due to size. Shoot me some pics if you get the racepak installed!

Will do. Waiting on iq3s to come out so I can have a fuel gauge integrated.

Hope to have dash ready in a couple months.

I recessed a Holley dash into my DSE 69 dash insert. By far the best dash on the market!

Ill add some more pictures later tonight.

Dutchboy that looks amazing! What modifications did you have to make to the DSE 69 insert to make the fit? What dash pad did you use?

I searched all over and couldn't find what I am looking for. Does anyone know what the pro/cons are for the Racepak over the Holley dash?
