ISSPRO EV or EV2 ??

Getting ready to buy gauges ...

What is the difference between the EV1 and the EV2 ?

Is it worth the extra 75 bucks for the EV2 ?

not much concerned with the looks ... just need a gauge that works accurately. thanks.

I have ran both in 3 different vehicles, no complaints. My EV2's were custom built at a time that the particular color combo I wanted wasn't available to the public yet and I got a great price on them or I'd still be running the EV1's I had.

so I reckon the only difference is the display/color options?

I think I'm gonna order the EV1's ..... I ain't looking for bling.

thanks.

EV2's are all sensors/electric
EV1's are mechanical

The EV2s are MUCH easier to install. But I also prefer the ease of the electrical only.

How are they easier to install?

perhaps I am not understanding how these gauges hook up...

I am used to mechanical gauges in hot rods..

do the ev2's use the circuit box ? or does the ev1 use the circuit box?

No box to mount, no ring terminal pryo line, no boost line to run inside the cab, and you can daisy chain all of the power wires and run one 12v wire. One one group of 2-3 wires run into the cab to each gauge. Much cleaner to install.


Edit: Take a glance down the instructions: http://www.isspro.com/installation/IS172.pdf

I don't think the install is any easier on the EV2's myself, just different. The big plus going to the EV2 is that you don't have to find a home for the amplifier boxes the EV1's need. The EV1's have an option for a pyro probe with a weatherpack terminal so you don't have to fiddle with the ring connections, FYI.

JohnT24, when I got my EV2's you couldn't get them with the face/dial/lighting color option I wanted and I was given the opportunity to have a custom built set so I went for it. The options I have are now available.
