Default Shift Light

I use a Stewart Warner Ultra Shift from Summit, I like the blue light.
Easy hook up, stand alone. Page 116 in the new catalog.

I have the Raptor. It's small, easy to install, and very easy to set. MPH is a sponsor on here and that is where I got mine.

I run a Raptor as well. We'll be offering them as a dealer shortly.

I have mine in the center AC vent. You can't tell it's there until you hit your rpm. Nice and bright even during the day.

do you have any pics of how you mounted that? i wanted to get it mounted up so it was pretty much invisible. trying to keep the interior as stock looking as possible

thanks for all the feedback guys. looks like the raptor is the one for me.

I don't have any, but I'll try to get some. It is very easy to install in the ac vent, I tied into the pink wire for the traction control, ran a tach signal wire from the pcm, and hooked up a ground wire. You can't even tell it is in the car until it hits it's shift point.

Harlan here. $55 shipped, 15mins to wire and program. Works awesome too.

Mounted in the left center A/C vent. These are pics of the rough mount. Most people never even notice it's there. *sorry for the crappy cell pics, but you get the idea*
