boost and wideband ftw! oil pressure is also very critical. by the time you notice that you lost oil pressure or see that its not right damage has most likely occured but having a psi indiicator is way better than the oem dummy light.
i've got autometer z-series boost and oil pressure gauges (both mechanical w/ copper tubing). Both work/look great, except that my oil press. gauge is LOUD:shock: . Anybody else have this happen? I was nto expecting any sound what so ever...
My turbo isn't in yet, but my gauges are a s follows: All autometer carbon fiber, boost/vac, air fuel (worthless), oil pressure, EGT, and water temp. I am going to replace the a/f with an aem wideband very soon
i want mechanical gauges...but ive heard that autometer have a nice lil rep of not being accurate or breaking...i cant see myself paying big dollars for defi gauges or another big company...but form the testimony on here i might go w/ some autometers
I would get a oil pressure and wideband O2 long before a EGT
Temp gauge? meh... unless the factory one is really messed up I wouldn't bother.
I would choose mechanical over electric. I have autometer "autogauge" series, the reason being is that they are cheap... and aren't that flashy looking. They look quite similar to the factory speedo/tach in my crx. I've seen alot of cars get broken into around to steal gauges so I figure the less flashy the better..
i want to go w/ some simple gauges...something that looks very similar to stock...idk where to mount them though...the a pillar seems in the line of sight but there easy for someone to smash your window and rip em out
