Gauge Question?

So I am looking at gauges to get once I get my SCT. Has anyone had any experience with Glow Shift gauges? Or does Ford racing make a trans temp gauge? I found boost and EGT but no trans temp. Thanks for any info on the subject!

(Soon to be turbo back)
Triple gauge pilar w/ DiPricol Boost, Trans Temp, EGT
SCT X3 w/Eric's Street, Tow, and Extreme Street

More to come.....

Keep in mind that i HAVE had experience with the 3 companies i'm going to mention. Figured i'd mention that up front.

Glowshift - AKA Glowsh1t. You get what you pay for. The ones ive seen are inaccurate, and cheaply made

Autometer - Had a single tranny gauge, had 3 different senders, and a new gauge and it still wouldn't work, and yes it was hooked up correctly, i even called them and hooked it up while on the phone with a tech and did exactly as he said, still didnt' work

Isspro - I love them, accurate, professional looking. The diesel manor kit is VERY nice. Made the install a breeze.

I have glowshift. I will admit the construction is not as good as the high dollar ones. I do not think mine are inaccurate enough to matter. Everything seems spot on to me and my ranges are in line with everyone who is running more expensive ones. I think it will come down to lifespan more than accuracy. these might not last as long but i pocketed the extra money up front.
