1. AutoMeter A-Body Digital Dash

AutoMeter’s latest InVision Direct Fit Digital Dash System for ’72-76 Duster, Demon, Dart, Scamp, and Valiant (PN 7009) is a one-model solution for your entire dash. Monitor the speedometer, tachometer, fuel level, oil pressure, water temperature, and volts all in one place. The InVision Digital Dash features a 12.3-inch LCD with four user-selectable screens.

All kits include a wiring harness and sending units for water temperature and oil pressure. This dash features an adjustable RPM range and displays in imperial or metric units. An integrated joystick allows for easy programming.

The InVision Digital Dash will help protect your car with visual or audible alarms for low fuel level, low oil pressure, high water temperature, and low voltage. The speedometer easily calibrates to OEM or aftermarket vehicle speed sensors and the tachometer is capable of calibrating to many engine types.

2. FiTech TPI Computer Harness

Remember the ’80s and ’90s and the Tuned Port Injection (TPI) engine sway? Now you can bring your TPI engine to the next level with a modern FiTech TPI computer and wire harness with high-function handheld programmer, thereby eliminating all the hassles and drawbacks of the ’80s technology. No laptop or chip burning required.

The FiTech TPI system is based on proven, self-learning EFI technology with speed density and wideband air/fuel ratio control, improving the performance, tunability, and driveability of your TPI (stock or highly modified). The FiTech TPI system also features lock-up control of the 700-R4 or 200-4R torque converter or is available to control a modern 4L60E or 4L80E transmission, which means no more TV-cable adjustments.

The FiTech ECU is compact and easy to mount and connects to the engine through a sheathed wiring harness that is terminated with OEM-style connectors for the TPS, IAC, CTS, knock sensor, injectors, and small cap computer-controlled distributor. A three-bar MAP sensor and wideband oxygen sensor are in constant control of the air/fuel mixture with parameters that are easy to set up and monitor through the supplied color touch-screen handheld controller.

3. A/C Manifold for Easy Compressor Access

MetalWorks Speed Shop has designed an A/C manifold that mounts directly to an SD7 A/C compressor with the charging ports built directly into the manifold itself, which allows for easy access. This design allows for easy hookup of the charging ports, simpler A/C hose plumbing, and a cleaner aesthetic.

MetalWorks A/C manifolds are machined from billet aluminum, include the port valves, and are available in both black anodized and aluminum finishes to match your car’s engine bay. Save yourself future frustration with MetalWorks’ new A/C manifold.
