eh i think i'm going the Megasquirt and AutoMeter route anyways. i'll have a sexy dash and a great system for tuning my car and making it run even stronger.

i might still pick up a Contour IC for the indicator lights and stuff.

i'll use the electronics from the contour one to interface with the warning lights (if i can use them with the Megasquirt) otherwise i'll just scrap it and make a custom aluminum bezel that sits on the focus IC
