You can always expect two things from the SEMA Show: the dopest new vehicles in the custom world and loads of hot new products to spice up your ride. Here are the best and brightest products that we could conjure up to get your credit cards shaking in your wallet. Take a seat and try to contain yourself.

Gauge This!
The SPA integrated dash system has been designed to cover a wide variety of applications from OE manufacturers, competition vehicles, motorcycles, kit cars, and custom cars. The lightweight aluminum dash incorporates analog speedo, tachometer, fuel gauge, two temperature readings, and two pressure readings all within a space-saving 200x100x40mm unit. Both the innovative color-changing tachometer needle and speedo are driven by smooth, silent stepper motors renowned for their high accuracy and stability. To complete the dash system package, we have incorporated an industry-standard warning/information light cluster and an easy-to-read multifunction LCD display unit. The dash system comes complete with sensors, wiring loom, and a comprehensive user-friendly instruction manual.

Accuracy Achieved
The AccuAir system uses a small onboard computer that reads linear position sensors to determine the height of your car. You still have manual air control, but the system gives you the ability to save any three of your favorite heights and recover them at the touch of a button. The key to Accuair's system is the fact that it bases measurements on height, not air pressure. If you load the vehicle with passengers or groceries, the system compensates when you press one of the numbered preset buttons.
