    Which Dash Display

    I am trying to figure out which dash display to put into the Rally Rolla.

    Revs, oil pressure, water temp and speed are required as a basic set. I am used to a needle tacho readout.

    I have a VDO fuel gauge which I got as a prize, so do not need that.

    Oil temp and fuel pressure would be nice to haves.

    I have a gear indicator for the sequential box, and the Motec M400 can give me warning lights for other failures if needed.

    The Stack 700 series gives me the basics and the 800 series gives me a few other options. Both come with wiring looms and can be had for under $800 or $1400.

    Motec or Racepack come with nice graphics, and a heap of stuff I would probably never use. (Do I really need data logging or GPS locating) A little more pricey and up to over $2000.
    I could use the money elsewhere.

    Findings or reviews from people who use either would be appreciated.

    The C125's do look pretty awesome, I built my own cluster from speedhut gauges for my turbo 2zz rolla but would have much preferred an LCD cluster

      The racepak/Haltech display dash is a cheaper option if you don't want logging. Around the 700 mark from memory. You would need the motec interface for it as well though so it can get the can signal from the ECU.

        If you don't need a reasonable dash display or logger, what about just using gauges? Sometimes gages may be better than the low end displays given your requirements.

          Would like to know where from.

          All my research turns up something over $1200 and then I need the interface..

            You can reasonably regularly pick up the logger dashes for ~$1200-1300 if you keep an eye out. I got mine for $1200 in 2011, and have seen that sort of price come up regularly while ive been searching for Racepak gear.

              Ok. Haltech have the display only dash on their site for 949. Was a bit out, it's been a while since I have had the need to look for one.

              650 on the racepak price list but that is US dollars.

                They are different dashes hence the price difference.. If you want a price for one including the motec interface pm me

                  Yeah, but Smee doesnt need the Haltech dash, the Racepak + Motec interface would do just fine.

                    Semi hypothetical: would a HUD displaying configurable info be of interest to you (or any racers)?

                      FYI, just as a comparison, and not requiring any adapters to talk to the ECU,

                      the CDL3 dash by itself is $1892 inc GST, or as a logger $2470

                      the CDL3 and as a kit with complete wiring, GPS etc is $2420 or as a display kit and $2999 as a logging kit

                      The Colour C125 is $2392 as a display, or $2970 as a logger.

                      The C125 as a kit with wiring, GPS etc is $2810 as a display kit, or $3388 as a logging kit.

                        you can use the haltech dash to talk directly to the motec very easily and I has been done in the past.. you just have to do a user can channel on the ecu which is not hugely difficult just as you do to use a motec on a PCS dash

                          My Engine builder has suggested the CDL3, and I just want to plug and play with no stuffing around.

                          Car is a complete rewire job, so it is just wiring the sensors into the ECU loom.

                            Just go the CDL3 then, less stuffing around is best.

                              Please explain?

                              I see neater/more compact installation, warning lights, multiple shift lights , gear indicator and multiple info pages as advantages. The price difference is not much compared to decent quality gauges.
