    Where can I find white guage faces for a v6 cluster? So that when I turn the backlight on, the white parts illuminate and the numbers stay the same

    What's the difference between the base and gt gauges? I can't ever remember seeing reverse lit gauges only overlays.

    gt has 2 more guages and the speedometer goes higher. If overlays work I'm fine with that too. I should also probably point out that it's a 07

    Gts did not have more gauges, the 6 gauge cluster was a premium thing not Gt specific. I’m not sure anyone makes reverse glow gauges for these cars. The whole aftermarket for these cars has been drying up for some time.

    I may end up having to do that. I'd prefer it if I could get the white part to glow, but I don't think I'll be able to find anything.

    Is there any trouble with the white on white glow when it's getting dark, but not dark enough to have the headlights on?

    I was wrong, it’s part of the interior upgrade package.

    As for your other question if the numbers get hard to see turn your headlights on.

    I have a white face overlay for my ac gauges on my 00 Gt. I only ordered them because the previous owner took out the original one and replaced it with a stupid looking white face overlay that was cracked and looked like crap. Anyway, the one I bought was one of those cheap ones off of eBay. During the day it looks good but at night it looks horrible. The quality isn’t that great. I’d expect overlays like those posted to be the same but it’s worth a try. Good luck lining it up though.

    There is a 6-gauge cluster for the V6. Speedo only goes up to 120. Got one for my son's car.

    If I were you I'd work on finding a 6-gauge cluster and my color controls/buttons. Since you have an 07 it should be plug and play. Was on my son's anyway.

    Doesn't a new cluster interfere with the security system and the chip in the key? That's what I've heard anyway

    Nope. Not in your case. 05 - 09 cars don't have cluster issues like the newer cars. I've switched out clusters on both of our cars (06 & 07). Was completely plug/play. No difficulties whatsoever.

    That's looking like a good buy, the picture they have on there looks good, but do they have any issues with aging or fitament?

    Also what's a good cost on a 6 guage v6 cluster? I'm seeing them for $140 plus I'm assuming I have to pay to reprogram the odometer

    and how much of a pain is it to reflash the ECU? For the mileage that is

    Last question, do they require a different bezel?

    That's probably about right. I wouldn't worry about reprogramming unless it's an issue. Not sure who can. I believe you can only advance odometers. Not retard. Others would have chime in on that.

    Never done that (reflash). Bezel is the same. Pop the old one out (4 screws & a connector on the back). Pop the new one in. About as easy a job as you'll fine on these cars. Takes about 10 mins if you're slow. About 3 once you've done it a couple of times.

    That is different. Curious if you had modify the tune to account for the 200 mph speedo?
