Couple gage ??'s

Seems to me that I have seen mentioned here that there are a set of gages that look very much like '05 stock gages both in daytime and at night. Can anyone tell me which ones those are?

Also - anyone put a pyro in a pod that mounts to roof just above rearview mirror? I am a little concerned that the pyro lead with most of these gages won't be long enough to get snacked all the way to the exh manifold. Seems I heard somewhere along the way that you shouldn't lengthen the lead, as it will mess up the pyro reading due to extra resistance (this doesn't seem like it would add much resistance, but I thought I heard that somewhere along the way).

Thanks,
Chris

'05 250 CC - SCT w/ Matt's tunes, 4" turbo back, gages above mirror - still feeling out the 6.0 , but really like the rest of the truck .

Let me get this back to the top for you. I'm not familiar with that style of gauge and I use the A-Pillar not an overhead console so I'm not sure about the length either.

I'm not sure what the 05 gauges look like but black face Isspro gauges match my stock 04 gauges really well.

I believe the pyro gauges are calibrated to the length of the existing cable. I don't know how off it will be if you were to extend it but I think I read it in the instructions a while back that it was calibrated to the cable length.

overhead mount gets my vote i used the Autometer GS series, although i hear the isspros match well as well. the GS series matches my 03 (not familiar with the 05 however) perfectly day and night.
the pyro lead has enough room to leave a little coiled (8" or so) in the pod (so you can pull the gauge for service) and reaches the manifold with about 4 inches to spare. good luck
