Gauge advice

Im thinking about getting some gauges for my truck. I think i would like to get the EGT gauge, Boost, and AMP's. Im wondering what would be the best brand to get, im also wanting to get the gauge pillar that mouts on the bottom of the dash. Also how hard is it to install the egt and the boost senders that mount on the engine. Thanks.

Raul will chime in sometime. I like the ISSPRO's because they light up nice and are easy to read.

do you have a 6 speed? because if you have auto i highly recommend an auto trans temp because the stocker is not accurate at all... i recommend Autometer or Isspra... here is a link to the Isspro: Stealth Automotive. Isspro Gauge Kit

My truck is an automatic, I do not have a Tuner so I dont really think i need the trans temp. Does any one have some more links to the gauges they have and places to get them.
