The AEM CD5 Digital Dash Display is a carbon copy of the CD7 but with a mini 5″ size. A CD5 display has found its home in our SR20det swapped BMW E30 and we could not be happier with it. AEM did not compromise developing their digital dashes taking time to ensure the CD5 and CD7 displays out perform the competition at a fraction of the price. The full color LCD display + AEM dash design software allow any custom gauge configuration you can dream up. User definable warning and alarm features ensure the driver is notified of any parameters that are out of their normal operating range to help keep the engine safe. A correctly set up Digital Dash is hands down the most effective way to keep your engine safe and driver fully aware of all the important data coming in from sensors around the engine/car.
