Not again!!!!! Please use the search engine!!!
Here I will sum it up

#1) They are great my sister boy friend runs them on his prius with a spoiler and a fart muffler and they look really cool at night!!!

#2) They are Glow Crap, why do you want bling, bling on your gauges, buy quality and forget the bling bling!!!

I am with opinion #2. I have a source where I can get you all 3 Isspro gauges, a pillar and complete install kit for $300 delivered to your door. I can't post the source because they aren't a sponsor and I don't want any problems with the MODS. So PM me if interested.

My buddy has a boost and pyro in his dodge...not gonna say they are the best quality but they work if your on a budget. The 7 color thing is neat but im a fan of the different series of autmoeter gauges with the leds now...bright and crisp.

2 of my buddies have them. You can tell that they are a cheap gauge. Also the installation is terribe, they dont previde hal of the needed things. Like 1 foot of hose for the boost guage, 1 foot of wire to go to the tranny, etc. Also the pyro seems to be inaccurate.

IMO I would spend a little more oney for a quality product.

I wish i had known about NCH's contact when I bought my gauges. I like ISSPRO cause they look factory and match the interior very well. I went with Autometer and they work very well too. they cost a few bucks less than ISSPRO if you look around for a good deal. I recommend looking for a gauge + POD combo. And NCH's hookup is a great deal.

I've got both autometer and isspro and I like them both. My brother's autometers have a problem with his pyro (it may just need to be regrounded though). Some will swear by the glowshift and some will swear at them. Never had em but the next set I get I might just try them.

I have the Glowshift gauges (boost, trans and pyro) in my truck and they work great. I didn't know any better when I had bought them at the time because I didn't search and probably would have went with something different, but they work just fine. Everything that was needed came in the kit for me. The fit with the triple pod could be better, but oh well.

I might end up buying different gauges and a better fitted triple pod once I have some extra money, but I can't say anything "bad" about them...

i have glowshifts. Wanted isspro but the wife got glowshift as a surprise. I have had them for 2 years now with NO problems at all. Installation was cake. They gave me plenty of wire and the tube for the boost was more then enough. Dont know what the guy above it talking about. But as of now i will keep them till the break or mess up.
