Should I???

This guy here in town has a set of Autometer Cobalt gauges for sale. He has a boost, tranny temp, and fuel pressure, with all the lines to hook everything up. He is asking $250, but I need to buy a pillar. Is it worth it?

I know I should really monitor more but this just seems like a decent deal.

I have been wanting to get a CTS but they are rather expensive but are well worth it in the long run.

Personally, I like gauges that match the factory instrument cluster.

If they are mechanical boost and fuel press gauges the thats not really a good deal. You can get a pyro for 150-175 and mechanical gauges for about $50.

Personally I'd save up for the CTS
