Please don't install one of those 5" tachs in your Caliber SE, SXT, R/T and even SRT-4 unless you gutted the car and thats the only gauge you're gonna have.

You're better off finding a junked caliber that has a tach and swapping it in but double check w/ dealer if it will work. They can reflash the mileage for you too.

The redline is 6500rpms.
Doesn't have the fun of looking at a dial gauge but the ScanGauge II is a great tool. I have that and rotate it between both of my cars. For the Caliber I stick it right in the cubby under the radio and wedge it with the cord. Plus it looks all neat with the digital readouts lit up and all. My friends would do a double take and say WTF!

I agree with SRTst.

Getting the gauge pod from a wrecked car is the cleanest idea, IMO. Keep the pillar open for an oil pressure, volt/amp, or other gauges.
