Isakson I've had good luck with Isspro gauges. I have had the EV series in my old 99, and soon in my 96. Dipricol and Autometer are the other big brands that most use and like. I would avoid the Glow Shift gauges, they have been real hit and miss as far as quality but seem to be improving lately. One nice thing about Isspro's is they are made in the good 'ol US of A.

I have the AutoMeter gauges in a 3 gauge pillar pod. I'm fairly happy with them although my boost gauge sticks once in a while. I think if I had to do it over again I'd go Isspro.

finally got some pics of my guages sorry for the poor quality i took them with the camera phone



full brightness


dimmed - i hooked them in line with the guage dimmers but i think i will be buying a new dimmer just for the guages because when i dim the guages my cluster gets almost to dark to see
