I have Isspro and don't regret it one bit. They look great, match the factory gauges well, and are very accurate. When i bought the kit it was $330 for everything needed to install. I think its about $350 now. I got mine from diesel manor.

I went with Isspro, EV2's.

No regrets, and super easy install


If you plan to ever have more than 4 or 5 gauges, splurge on Performax. Otherwise I'd suggest EV2's or EV's.

I hate isspro EVs the EV2s are good.

I prefer autometer either way cause they are cheaper and do the same thing.

OMG! I was looking on ebay,and all I could find were these glow shift gauges-the boost gauge went up to 60 psi-WTF?!?
These gauges can't be worth a ****-can they?
Multi color function doesn't mean anything for reliability
Any input on these?Just mostly curious

I would NOT suggest glowshift. I'm sure the work (for a while) I just wouldn't trust reliability or precision

And it looks like Jake has the EV not EV2's

They are EV or EV2 i can't remember, its been 2 years since i put them in.

As for the glowshift, or as i like to call them, glowsh!t, well, i think my nickname for them pretty well sums it up. A couple of my friends put them in and they have problems. They aren't accurate either. A buddy of mine's still showed 400 degree EGT after over 10 minutes of idling.
