When shifting, pressing down on the gas pedal and listening to exhaust sounds, it’s necessary to monitor engine behaviors on the dash. Of course, we’re talking about Corvette tachometers and the role they play in your behind-the-wheel experience.

WHAT IS A CORVETTE TACHOMETER?
A tachometer represents the RPMs (revolutions per minute) of the engine. These dials communicate information about how hard your engine is working to provide power. Factors such as gear selection will influence the number of revolutions an engine can handle in a given situation.
Your Corvette’s tachometer has a redline towards the right-hand side. It indicates the highest number of RPMs the engine can produce. Corvette vehicles of the past and present have numbers written in intervals of ten on stock tachometers. Use these markers and multiple by one hundred to determine how many revolutions the engine makes each minute.
BENEFITS OF REPLACEMENT CORVETTE TACHOMETERS
Top Flight Automotive Corvette tachometer parts and replacements are based on OEM dimensions, fonts and color schemes. If your stock installation stops working, you can rebuild this section of the dash so you know when to shift. Reduce your chances of stalling manual and automatic transmissions with the help of Top Flight Automotive.
