Default Shift Light info needed.

Im searching for a compact shift light for the column and have found numerous makes but many have bad reviews. I want one that does not require the RPM activated switch which is an additional purchase and more complex install. So far I like the MSD 89631 all in one unit but need your input for those that have a shift light before I buy one. Which model do you have or like? Pros and cons. Thanks

Good info here and thanks for the reply. The MSD 89631 smaller version I really like too. No pills but is programmed for the RPM right on the top of unit.

How will you mount the MSD 89631? Pic if already mounted please.
The Omex Shift Light Pro ( https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p...ight-pro-omslp ) might be the smallest, most discreet one I have seen. The small single 10mm round LED light can be incorporated in the dash to resemble a normal warning light...

I have a shift light mounted on the steering column. Works great.

What about a sequential shift light system.

Here's an example:

Digital Race Electronics Sequential Shift Light System

Measure 2.3" x .63" x 1.38".
Small enough it could easily be fitted anywhere without a bracket.
Use 7/8" 3M Attachment Tape (double sided auto molding tape).
High adhesion but removable without leaving bonding marks.
