Gauges?

OK its time for me to get some gauges and am having a bit of trouble in deciding between a digital cluster or the classic pillar gauge setup. Are there any pro/cons that you guys are aware of on either or is it mainly just a personal preference? I originally liked the thought of a digital cluster but lately have been liking the pillar setup more and more. Thanks for your input!

I like my edge because it flashes at me when something is in the red. Regular gauges don't do that. It's slot Easter to install aswell. (egt probe is the same)

That what i was thinking. Digital just seems so much easier and cleaner. Edge CTS looks like the route i am going to go with at this point unless someone comes with some data proves me otherwise.

I've got neither but am leaning toward those digitals...honestly, it looks too like the best overall value is to get one that also has tuning functionality...kindofa all in one dealio.

I like the looks of analog gauges but the edge will be so much easier to install.

One thing I like about analog gauges is that it gives you a referance of where your at and whats acceptable. Its hard to explain, but if you just have a number, i.e. the edge monitor, its hard to referance that number to where your stoping point is.

Like 1,020* sounds alot higher then 980* but if you have an analog gauge you would hardly notice a jump between the two because there only 40* apart.

You know what I mean?

The Mcnally Electronics gauges have the measured quantity on the needle AND on the digital display, So you get the Qualitative motion on the needle, and the Quantitative reading on the digits.

Visit Glowshifts website. They have some good stuff on there. They have some nice 3 in 1 gauges. I've been happy with mine. Less is more sometimes. GlowShift Performance Gauges & Pods ? Automotive Boost Gauges, Pyrometer

I just put my glowshift gauges in. They work just fine, except for the line for the boost gauge was too short so I had to rig it up with some brake line I had laying around.
