Dakota Digital Universal Competition VHX Instruments - VHX-1100
The VHX-1100 is a whole new breed of instrument system. Created as a crossover between the pure function of race gauges and the usability of street instrumentation, this system provides the best of both. With a 0-160 MPH Speedometer, a 0-10,000 RPM Tach and large-sweep Oil Pressure and Temperature gauges, even the most radical of applications are covered. Four programmable, digital message centers allow for nearly unlimited expansion.
Race-bred from the start, VHX-1100 puts an emphasis on the engine RPM and vehicle speed while dedicated oil and water instruments flank each side. Dual LCD message centers allow four digital readings at one time for the utmost in driver awareness.
The billet aluminum faceplate is powdercoated flat-black and features intricate machining to create a unique multi-layered look. Measuring 10.75" x 6" (10.25" x 5-1/2" cutout) overall, this compact package also sports exposed stainless steel hardware to round out the competition styling.
Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems. Completely engineered and manufactured at their facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!
With this system integrating perfectly with Dakota Digital's BIM Series of expansion modules, up to 16 additional readouts (ie: Boost, Oil Temp, etc.) can be added seamlessly. These BIM modules are available for purchase separately in our store.
VHX System Includes:
Speedometer - 0-160 MPH (optional metric version 0-255 kmh)
Tachometer - 0-10,000 RPM
Oil Pressure - 0-80 psi
Water Temperature - 100-260ºF (optional metric version 40-120ºC)
Lighting - Back lit technology is popular with performance instrumentation due to precise lighting allowing you see what is truly important when you really need it at a quick glance. Each number, tick mark, annunciator, needle, indicator and digital message center is lit by a series of LEDs behind the gauge face.

Bushings - Each kit comes with 1/8" to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT bushings along with bushings for 12mm and 16mm x 1.5 threads.
Pushbutton - Dakota Digital instruments are programmed and operated by the push of a button. Simply mount the included pushbuttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient and easily accessible location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.
