Transmission Fluid Temp Gauge

What is this gauge used for on the sticks? Is it just missing?

Unless you are towing with your camaro, you really don't need it. If I understand it right, even with an automatic. It's just for looks?

well, not completely for looks. for most, yeah, its just looks, but for some of us who will be modifying the engine and transmission, its a nice little piece to have. (instead of hacking up an A-pillar to fit a custom gauge in)

Yes; the A Piller is for Boost Gauge and a Wide Band sensor

Unless they've changed something, they all have transmission fluid.

Trans temp is great in autos that are really being pushed.

A trans pressure gauge would have been neat for autos. I'd prefer the original idea of the torque meter.

in a manual transmission, gear oil still acts in the same capacity as ATF does for an auto. it lubricates and cools the internals

as for the gauge in a manual, i'd rather have the torque gauge back, so long as it read more than 300 like the ones in the V6s we saw

Yeah - I'd rock one of those, at about 400 ft. lbs. or so. Makes me wonder - is that torque as measured at the flywheel or at the wheels?

Baring that, I'm hoping the aftermarket comes out with a good A/F ratio gauge to fit the four-pack.

Yeah....I agree I hope the aftermarket come up with something for these gauges. I would like to drop the voltmeter and put my boost gauge in there.

Even sticks have trans fluid alias gear oil and whats wrong with knowing what the temp is in any trans, better safe than sorry.

Assuming you're running boost.

I'm still on the fence about a supercharger or a cammed N/A setup.

If I go supercharged for the V6 it would have to be a magnuson setup. I really don't like centrifugal blowers. Hopefully somebody will come out with a kit for it, otherwise I'll just have to make my own.

I thought they had a twin screw for the v-6 on the caddy? or am I thinking about something else?
