What brand of gauges?

hey all,

I have been reading, and can not figure out what brand of gauges to get. I am thinking aobut the autometer z-series, or ultra lites. Anyother brands out there that are reliable and accurate?

I am not sure what boost gauge to get, 35 psi or 60 psi? The other 2 will be trans and pyro.

My bro has the z-series in his truck and has no problems. He got some off of ebay that where junk, street glow? But then he does drive a cummings


Thanks for your input.

Looking for a FORD.

Autometer, I have isspro and they are nice but they cost a pretty penny. Ebay gauges are el-crapo gauges.

I have priced the autometer gauges at about 300, the ISS gauges I can get for about 325 for all 3 and the mount. should I spend the extra 25 bucks? I think the extra 25 is worth it, cause I am getting the 0-60 psi boost gauge. The autometer kit comes with a 0-35 psi gauge.

35 psi should be enough unless your going with hybrids and a bigger turbo?

I just went with the isspro because I liked the look of the gauge and how it lighted up at night and never had a problem with them yet. I'm not saying any other gauges are junk I just went for appearance.

I had to replace the turbo. It has the wicked wheel, banks housing that is ebv deleted, so I have no idea what this turbo can produce. I do hae the ebv sensor delete cap on. Is there a other mod that fools the stock boost sensor?

I am very new at this, my brother has doing most of the work since he has no job right now, plus he worked at a semi truck shop and a custom truck place and has installed a bunch of deisel stuff. So far from what I gathered from him, he loves his cummings because it is easyier to work on since there is more room!!! But I see him always working on his because something is broken on it!!!!! I wonder why he wants to drive my truck all the time?
