View Full Version : 250 xs instrumentation

09-17-2007, 09:34 AM
I need instrumentation and a suitable harness to suit a 250xs, who gives the best deals at present on this gear. Would probably prefer a single screen or two, smartcraft style. Would this be a cheaper option than individual gauges. We can cover the existing holes.
Will our existing wingplates/outriggers off of the 97 225 efi we are replacing fit?
I have some pics posted under rigging/setup and I welcome any imput as usual. Thankyou.

I know if you watch ebay, you can usually find smartcraft gauges and various harnesses going for pretty cheap. I know the suggested retail on those babies is pretty crazy. Don't know if there is much on the Aussie ebay but there usually is here.

as for the wingplates, not to sure. Is that 225 a 3.0L or 2.5? I was under the impression that all 3.0's have compatable mids.. maybe I'm wrong. Maybe a pro could chime in. good luck!

nothing's cheap with smartcraft. i have 1200 us in a speedo/tac with fuel, trim,water pressure. the small guage unit gives a lot of info in a 2 1/8" hole and runs about 250 for guage and 100 for cable. each guage is about 75 and they daisy chain. do not get the trim. its deadly slow.
