From top the first ones a voltmeter, second one is for turbo and third is a tachometer with shift indicator. here are more pics of the gauges:
Thanks for clarifying that.
Please do let me know how much did you pay for them.
Is it easy to install.
How is a "tachometer with a shift indicator" different from the tacho we have in our cars (i have a 2.2 safari EX)


I would be coming to goa in march where can I buy this.

You can set a RPM at which you want to shift and the shift light will blink to remind you to change gear.

as said by busa, the tachometer in the side pillar lets you know when to shift ,,by alerting you at a set level.
I bought them in singapore,about half a year back,dont know about their availability here.
Secondly a word of caution, TATAs cry for warranty claims, even slightest mod voids warranty. So take care, because these gauges require sensors to be attached parallel to some factory sensors,require mod to wiring , piping etc., something i wouldn't suggest on a new vehicle

PS job or no PS job, the safari looks better without the bing-bling wheels. Something that adds more character,like the Dueller/Dueler wheels.

Why do you need a shift indicating tacho in the first place for a diesel powerplant? Isn't this kind of a gadget mostly for a petrol engine?

Default over-rev

Basicaly because the Dicor 3.0 reaches peak really quick ,and it helps from over-revs.

My ear & whine of the engine has always worked for me, be it a 3.0L DICOR or a 2.0L TCIC Safari..
