Exclamation AC Autotechnic S7 Gauges (Fitment Issues on a V6 Accord)

Hello all,

I've seen several posts about the fitment of the S7 Gauges on a V6 Accord (these gauges fit the I4 Accord). I just ordered and installed a set in my Accord (V6 model) and there ARE fitment issues!

Problem (1): The I4 redline is around 6700 rpm, 6200 rpm on the V6. The tachometer redline on the S7 gauges is around 6700 rpm

This isn't a huge issue for me because its an automatic, no biggie so far.

Problem (2): The cutout in the gauge face for the needle stopper (I don't know the technical term, but its the small needle that stops the gauge needle from moving past 0 mph) does NOT align with the hole in the stock gauge face.

This is where the real problem is. However its pretty easy to fix, but there is a compromise. You'll have to drill an extra hole in order for everything to align properly. I just placed the gauge face onto the stock gauge surface and drilled a hole where the cutout was and put in the stopper.

Just wanted to give you all the heads up about this issue. Please let me know if you have any quesitons

**The speedometer scale does seem to be the same

Speedometer scale is the same, so no difference

Sorry but I want this to be very clear to everyone intersted in the gauges;

Yes, you are right in that they are designed for the I4, however they CAN be modified to fit the V6. Most of the S7 Gauges are listed for compatability with the I4 and I've never seen any listing for the V6, hence why I started this thread in the first place (to anyone who wants to put these gauges in their V6).

Hope this clarifies things
