Gauges for a 7.3L

I was wondering what people had to say about the glow shift gauges. I am thinking about getting them for my truck but wasnt sure. If not glows, what kind do you reccomend. I can get a 30 psi boost. Egt an tranny for 230$ shipped to my house.

Well i have them and work good for me for the price granted there alot of people that dont like them but thats there opinion..if u can afford something nicer go that way but if your on a budget then these are alot better than no gauges in my opinion..

I got the glowshifts, as I'm on a college budget and strapped for cash. I think they work decent, I like them. No complaints.

Just put mine in a few weeks ago. got them through amazon 4 $250 including pillar and shipping. good service. ordered them near midnight and receive them the next day in VA. they actually sent me transmission by mistake instead of fuel pressure, but I had the proper gauge 2 days later. couldn't be happier.

I heard that after awhile the gauges go out or flutter or mis read and blah blah blah. But one of the members here put up a fix for them. I cant find it right now, but I think he put a 12 volt resistor/fuse?? (could be wrong) in the wires and now they work fine. If someone could find the link to his thread or if I get some time tomorrow I'll throw it in here. But ya. I heard they go out but with this little fix they work just fine and last long. Anyone else come across that thread?

Fuel pressure seems to work fine and was easy to install with the fitting.

I'd personally get an HPOP gauge if you guys plan on doing beefy injectors or turbo or anything. But I personally like glow shift; although many people say they are junk or go out after a year or whatever.

In my opinion, a 30psi gauge is too small for our trucks. I know when tuned our OBS trucks boost up to 32psi sometimes, which would have that gauge maxed out.
