ISSPRO EV1 vs. EV2

I've been trying to research different brands and decided on ISSPRO, I was in the local diesel performance shop and they price quoted me Boost and Pyro EV1's (mechanical) I was wondering what advantage there would be if I went with EV2's(digital) aka. air line running in the cab vs. electric wire?

How big of a pain in the but would each be to install, should I have them installed there, especially with tapping the manifold?

I have the Isspro EV's and have no problem with them. Installation was easy as well. As far as the Boost, you can just tap into the MAP line (you don't need to drill/tap your Y-pipe). You will have to drill/tap your driver's side manifod, but that was easy as well.

Both are easy to install I personaly use the EV1's..just can't see paying the extra for EV2's. A carefull install takes 3 hours. Not hard at all for a DYI.
If you would like prices please PM me. We provide complete instructions.

The EV2's are so much nicer, better lighting, better install, cleaner install... I just cant see why anyone would install a set of EV1's new when you can get the EV2's for just a bit more.

I prefer the Performax line to both the EV's lines... but you have to want a few more gauges to justify the cost.

Thanks everybody,
CSIPSD, question if you don't mind, I've seen pics of your gauges on other threads. Do the ISSPRO gauges fit well in the autometer pods, and how do you like your instrument gauge pods, I'm trying to keep mine off the piller for a "cleaner" outside look.

Here ya go... And just to be clear, its not an Autometer pod so to speak. Its just sold by them. Any 2" or 2 1/16" gauge will fit the pods!



Notice the tabs that hold the gauge into the pod, Isspro is the only company to use this, they went thru several different versions to find one that worked just right!

Awesome! Do you have any trouble seeing the instrument cluster pod gauges while driving, I know the reason for having them on the pillar is because of the good visibility, and I want to watch them close.

Just a FYI EV2's kit will run you aprox 22% more or litle less than $100 vrs using EV1's..either way its a personal choice and you will be happy with whichever Isspro kit you get.

You can also get overhead pods for up to 4 guages.
