So im going to replace my 2 gauges on my pillar(the ones on there are cheap junk), and a shift light. Im def. getting a boost gauge but what should the other one be? I was thinking oil pressure? Or A/F?
Also what do you guys sudgest for gauge brand? Im going with a "blue" scheme on the interior for all my lighting so i was thinking autometer cobalt? I do really like the looks of the garrett boost gauge though...

I'm getting the stewart warner maximum performance gauges. Boost/vacuum, oil pressure, water temp, fuel pressure gauges and AEM or PLX wideband.

I say you get the basic vitals oil pressure temp water temp boost and A/F
oil press and oil temp? is oil temp necassary?
isnt ur temp gauge in the stock cluster a water temp gauge?
ya, def getting a boost gauge
and i just have a narrowband a/f in there now... i really dont want to spring for a wideband...
is an egt really necassary for these cars? i know in diesels its a must but i havent heard of many running egt's in imports...

x9000 for water temp, thats the reason my first build died, the stupid honda stock temp gauge finally started to rise after my cylinder walls had alluminum on them.

I'll be getting one as soon as I can get a ECU chipped for my automatic.

The case is anodized alum., which is not cheap!

on the site it sais you can have 1 gauge at full screen or up to 8 gauges in one screen, i assume you get to choose what gauges are on the screen???

this is important as i dont want to have to constantly change screens, i want to see all the gauges i want in that one screen

does anyone have one of these yet? how do you like it?

where would you wire this into? obviuosly i dont have a obt2 port, and god knows i dont have bluetooth...

Im somewhat in the same boat. I ordered a "gauge cluster pod" so that gives me 2 spaces to fill up. Im thinking a/f and oil .....unless yall can change my mind? ha. Im picking up my gauges from a guy off clist in a couple days ......boost, a/f, and oil (autometer) for only $50! I do plan on boosting my hoopdy soon so ....i guess ill just put a gauge somewhere else. Ill customize something up.
