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?

Not sure pro's and cons but I'm curious what is under the extension on the 69 dash pad where he obviously removed it. Looks really good though!

I went with the holley for the fact it is pretty much plug and play setup. Because I am running the holley hp ecu. However after I purchased it, You may be able to run a Racepak through the holley ecu can adapter plug in. I never researched it any further. Holley has another extension harness that plugs in to the back of the holley digital dash. For turn signal and high beam and a few other inputs. I think the street version of the racepak dash may have this already configured. Something to think about. I didn't think that far ahead.. . This extension harness won't be available until first quarter of 2016,, I called holley on this.. so I guess I will be waiting..

Wait you cant run the Holley dash cause no extension harness?

I have all the harnesses for the racepak ready to go. Probably going with the IQ3s as it has easier use of the fuel level. I dont care for the turn signals so I'll likely run a panel from NVU for the signals and check engine/etc.

FWIW, Autometer showed at SEMA a new display (called the SD7) supposedly coming in March or April.
Numerous screen options, configurable for any gauge combinations you want, warning lights & alarms, etc. Also has CAN connectivity,etc, etc.
Here's a few crappy cell phone pictures I took of the various screen options on their display. Sorry for the blurry shots...







At 4-5/8" x 7-7/8", it is almost identical in size to the Holley display. To fit it to the DSE dash insert, the drop down will have to be removed or at least notched out. I like the idea of recessing it like Paul did on his Camaro.

Hopefully the Autometer Street Dash will be much cheaper than the data-logging Competition Dash which is around $4500.

Does the Holley dash have the ability to show a Speedometer and Odometer?

I about fainted when I called them about the competition dash before prices were announced. Wonder how many they've sold?
I was told about $1400 for the SD7. Not exactly cheap, but cooler & more flexible than gauges for about double the $$$.

Yea $1400 isn't too bad considering the racepak street dash is about $1000, and a nice set of gauges can run 8-900 depending on what all you're trying to display.

I like the new Motec display but it's price is astronomical as well.
