why don't you just buy a tach? i bought a small tach...sunpro 2. its really easy to install, just do that. because its annoying if say its loud and you cant hear, music, or crappy road and you can't tell what the engine is doing. but then again, i hardly look at the tach that much when driving. so idk.

do the gauge cluster swap. they are all over ebay for like $20.

i know 2nd gear redlines around 52mph

after that, i really have no idea, i think 3rd redlines probably around 75?

but get the OEM tach off another LC accent

thats kinda weird a standard with no tach. I don't think the car would let you go passed the redline it will prob just cut the throttle at that point.

you'd be surprised with the number of manuals that have no tachs, from all manufacturers.

anyways, yeah i think i redlined in 5th once, at like 115, which is the car's limits, or somewhere around there (don't remember the exact speed so calm down if i'm wrong)

yeah it just cuts out when you redline, and sounds scary as ****, like it's about to blow (it just might if you do it too long)
