The best thing to do is call up some of the vendors. Autometers are a little cheaper, but I think more people thing the isspro are a better gauge. You will pay a little more though.

Hit up one of the vendors on the site. I know a bunch of them, like Raul above, have gauge kits for sale. You may also want to PM CSIPSD, who has 12 or 13 gauges on his way to 16, IIRC.

BTW, if drag racers run AutoMeter gauges, that's good enough for me...

I have been looking for the same and have yet to find them. I haven't called the vendors, but I have looked at their pages. Let me know if you have any luck! Maybe they will give us a deal for both buying??

hey dieselmatt you got a PM on your way with prices....

OkieFordFan the gauges are not that hard to install.. hardest part would be drilling and taping your manifold for the EGT probe.....
