If you race its better than stock tac, and it can look nice if installed right. Only probably is I think the lowest rpm range it has goes to 9000 and we don't rev even close to that

i'd suggest a smaller tach with a bright shift light, it'll work just as good and will look 10x better, plus be more low-key. It's bad enough to see a huge tach in a mustang or something, but in a focus or honda or whatever they just look really out of place... but if you really want to know where your engine's at an aftermarket tach would be a good thing since the stock ford tach is always half a second behind.
