what gauges to go with?

So who has a good deal on gauges and pillar pods? Does anyone run the half pillar pods? I only need a pyro and a boost gauge, as i have a manual trans. Also what gauges seem to be the best? I have always run auto meter in everything, but i know they aren't the only ones that are good for the money.

I appreciate the help, but as you can tell I am a little apprehensive about not getting the whole thing or not the right set.

check with the vendors Autometer or Issopro (spelling). As with anything else cheaper isn't always better

Call the vendors. I'm partial to the Isspro gauges. They have a stock look to 'em.

Also...Diesel Manor has some REALLY good prices on gauges.

Not intending to highjack the thread, but I would like to know if an autometer gauge reading up to 20 psi will be enough...

I have one alredy but not sure at all if it wil work my rig is fully stock right now but im saving for my 4 banks chip and downpipe, and don't want to install this one and have to sell it later to buy some with higher boost reading..

PD forgot to say, is a 96er 2wd auto...

i have autometer and have been real happy with them.
as for the boost guage, i'd say 20 lbs is too low, mine goes to 35 and i can just about max it out.

I run the Autometer Z series on a half pod (boost and pyro) and really like the way they match with the rest of the cluster, looking back though I think I would rather get the full pillar and paint it to match, the half pod held on with 4 push pins just looks cheap even though it is well made.
